Our climate in Newnan, Georgia, includes warm weather and high humidity levels for a big portion of the year. This creates the ideal breeding ground for microbial growth in your home. Keep things clean by taking the proper precautions to inhibit microbial growth throughout your living space. As a result, you’ll help everyone breathe easier.
Schedule HVAC Maintenance
Your HVAC system offers a powerful line of defense against microbial growth. Make sure it’s up to the task by scheduling your annual maintenance visits on time. You should have your furnace tuned up in the fall, and schedule maintenance for your air conditioner in the spring.
During this visit, our service technicians will clean the interior components of the system and make sure that unpleasant growths haven’t taken hold anywhere. They will check the AC condensate drain for clogs, which can lead to a buildup of standing water, and make sure there’s no water leaking from the furnace. As a result, your HVAC system will run more efficiently and clean your air more effectively.
Improve Your Ventilation
Proper ventilation will help prevent microbial growths by keeping your air clean and fresh. This type of growth loves stale environments. Adequate airflow will help keep things moving, so the spores don’t have the chance to settle. Balance out the effect of proper home sealing and insulation with a mechanical ventilator to pull stale air out of the house and pump fresh, clean air in.
Install a Dehumidifier
Damp environments are ideal for microbial growth. In our warm Texas climate, this is a common issue. Keep humidity levels low to help prevent this type of problem. Your air conditioner will provide a natural dehumidifying effect, but this isn’t always enough. Install a whole-home dehumidifier, as well, to ensure low moisture levels and a healthy home.
