Today’s modern homes are constructed with an eye on improving the home’s overall energy efficiency, with a well-insulated structure that enhances the efficiency of heating and cooling systems. Although a tightly sealed home saves you money on energy bills, without proper precautions, indoor air quality can suffer. As a leading Augusta heating and air conditioning company, Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® is well-equipped to deliver services that not only keep your comfortable in your home but that also improve your home’s air quality.

Indoor Air Pollution Effects on Human Health

In many homes, the air inside is more polluted than outdoor air. For people with allergies, asthma conditions, or respiratory problems, indoor air pollution can pose real health dangers. Fortunately, a home’s forced-air heating and cooling systems can play an important role in improving the quality of indoor air. HVAC systems deliver conditioned air through filters that can trap many harmful particulates. Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® specializes in installing high-quality filters for whole-home systems that can significantly reduce the amount of dust and allergens that enters your home without impairing the delivery of conditioned air. As

HVAC systems deliver conditioned air, they also remove household air, and that process helps maintain proper humidity levels in your home. If a cooling system is imbalanced or malfunctioning, humidity levels can rise, not only making your home feel clammy or stuffy but also promoting the growth of allergens like mold, mildew and bacteria. Scheduling regular air conditioning maintenance from Duggan's One Hour Heating & Air Conditioning® is the most affordable way to ensure that your cooling system operates at peak efficiency without compromising air quality.

Ductwork in forced-air HVAC systems is also important when it comes to indoor air quality. Leaks in air ducts can allow outdoor allergens into your home. Duct inspections are included in our air conditioning maintenance services. If leaky ducts are an issue, we provide duct sealing and insulating services as well.
