Indoor air quality is a concern for households throughout Douglasville, GA. Staying on top of AC repairs, managing indoor humidity levels, and keeping pollutants out of your home are helpful ways to control air quality and your household’s health. But did you know that installing a ductless AC system can make your family even healthier? Here’s how.
Eliminates Airborne Pollutants Released From Ducts
The majority of indoor air pollutants come from dirty ductwork. Eliminating ductwork takes care of this problem because cooled air doesn’t travel through ductwork where dust, dander, and other contaminants collect and then get circulated back into the air. Ductless systems deliver cleaner air directly into the room without needing to travel through a system.
No Need to Worry About Damaged Ductwork
As ductwork heats and cools, it expands and contracts. Over time, this movement causes ducts to crack and separate at the seams. When this happens, indoor contaminants have an easier time getting into the system and evenly distributing through the home.
Damaged ductwork does more than affect air quality, though. It also affects your bank account. When ducts come apart, they leak air. Your HVAC system works harder to heat or cool the house and experiences significant wear and tear. So, not only do you pay more in energy costs, but you might end up paying more for unexpected furnace and AC repairs.
Ductless Air Conditioners Remove Humidity
As humidity levels creep higher, your air conditioner’s job is to remove excess humidity. A ductless ac system does a thorough job of keeping relative humidity levels at or below 50 percent. Healthy humidity levels keep toxins from forming in the air, eliminate dust mites, and reduce the occurrence of airborne germs. Keeping indoor humidity levels at the 50 percent mark also prevents severe respiratory issues like asthma and allergies.
