Ready or not, summer is headed our way, and when you live in Jacksonville, FL, that means a lot of heat and humidity. A good air conditioner can help keep your home cool, but there’s more to a comfortable household than cool air. The quality of your air can make just as much of a difference in your daily life as the temperature of the air, and good indoor air filters can be as important as a reliable HVAC system. Air filters can range from simple filters in your AC to elaborate units featuring UV lighting and similar features. But all of them offer tangible benefits to homeowners who use them. Here’s a quick list of 3 benefits to indoor air filters.
Less Risk of Sickness
Air filters help keep germs, bacteria and other contaminants out of your home, as well as allergens and similar unwelcome visitors. That can severely reduce the number of colds and other bouts of sickness your family experiences. If you have sensitive family members or people with allergies in your homes, air filters can be a lifesaver.
Less Damage to Your Furnishings
Dust, cigarette smoke and other contaminants can settle on your furniture, increasing wear and tear over time and keeping you busier than you need to be with dusting and cleaning. A good filtration system can help keep those chores to a minimum.
Less Wear and Tear on Your AC
While excessive dust and dirt don’t directly affect your AC, cleaner air generally helps it do its job better. A lack of dust and contaminants will reduce stress on the system, allowing it to work more efficiently and reducing the need for maintenance and repairs.
