In Vista, Escondido and San Marcos, we have some extremely hot days, so hot, that having an air conditioning unit is almost mandatory. Air conditioners make our Escondido homes and office environments tolerable to be in, and clean the air. The filter systems in air conditioners remove the large particles of mold, pollen and animal dander out of the air.Â If you’re someone with asthma, you know that these large particles, if left unfiltered, can trigger asthma attacks. Your air conditioner is an excellent tool to help you control your asthma attacks. Air conditioners also help to eliminate humidity in your Vista home. Humid environments are an ideal environment for mold and mildew to grow rapidly. The drier the air is in your home, the less likely you suffer mold and mildew triggered asthma attacks.
Air is pulled into your air conditioner and forced through blowers, compressors, condensers, filters, coolers and evaporators and then blown back into your San Marcos home at the temperature you select. This keeps the air circulating through your Vista home or office. If your air conditioning unit and your filter aren’t maintained and cleaned on a regular basis, you maybe at risk for an asthma attack.
Have your air conditioning unit serviced each year. Spring is the perfect time, because HVAC technicians aren’t busy yet, and your unit will be ready and working when the weather gets hot. Your Vista air conditioning maintenance technician will check your units coolant level and will make sure the coolant is clean. He’ll make sure your unit is working well mechanically and operating at it’s top level. He’ll check the cooling coils for mold and mildew. If they have traces of mold or mildew, he’ll clean or replace them.Â He’ll check your blower for corrosion, dirt and debris, and clean or replace as needed. He’ll clean or change your filter and your drain line.
You can take steps yourself to make sure your asthma isn’t triggered or aggravated. Clean or replace your filter once a month. If you change or clean the filter on the 1st Saturday of the month, you’ll have a schedule for filter maintenance.
