The big screen is set, snack list made, jersey ready to wear and HVAC service? Because Atlanta is hosting the big game, you’ve thought of just about everything to prepare for your Super Bowl party. You may be forgetting something. Have you scheduled an HVAC service appointment to ensure your home’s heating system and indoor air quality are game-day ready?
While you may have planned a complete surface clean of your home, you may be missing some key areas. Ensure all your guests can breathe easy and stay comfortable. Consider the reasons for HVAC service to prepare your home for party guests.
Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your Atlanta Home
Vacuuming and cleaning your home to eliminate odors are likely on your pre-Super Bowl party to-do list. Unfortunately, you may be missing an opportunity to improve your home’s indoor air quality for guests.
If you don’t schedule HVAC service to clean up your indoor air, you could risk dozens of airborne pollutants in your home.
You may not be allergic or sensitive to dust and other particles in your home’s air. It’s possible, however, for your guests to have an allergic or asthmatic reaction to them. The risk rises when more guests visit your home. They bring in outside odors such as cigarette smoke, pet dander, perfumes and more.
A clean HVAC system is one way to ensure it properly ventilates and filters air in your home. Or, you may want to have an HVAC technician install an ultraviolet air purifier. They easily eliminate up to 99.9 percent of mold spores and kill an additional 87 percent of airborne bacteria within your indoor air.
Keep Your HVAC System Clean
Speaking of strong odors, no Super Bowl party is complete without snacks, ranging from chili to hot wings and more. They all taste delicious, but some contain fragrant spices which can linger in your home well past the end of the fourth quarter.
Keeping your HVAC system clean, especially in the kitchen, will help ensure it filters odors out of your home more effectively. It starts with clearing your air ducts and staying on top of changing your air filters. We recommend at least once every three months for lower MERV filters.
When you have dirty ducts, you’re not just leaving the door open for pungent odors to linger longer. Your filters can clog up faster and force your system to work harder to distribute air. This results in higher heating and cooling costs as well as excessive wear and tear.
Just like your favorite football team needs to practice to be game-day ready, your HVAC system also requires regular maintenance to function efficiently. Removing accumulated dirt and debris improves airflow through your system and as well as your heating system’s efficiency.
Do this and you can run your furnace for less time to reach your desired temperature and keep your heating costs in check. You’ll definitely appreciate these benefits as you crank up the system when the temperature drops.
