Impact of Outdoor Seasonal Changes on Indoor Air Quality

Impact of Outdoor Seasonal Changes on Indoor Air Quality


The quality of the air you breathe is a key component of optimal health. Even if your HVAC unit is well maintained, there are outdoor seasonal changes that impact the quality of your indoor air. Outdoor natural occurrences are much harder to control, but there are measures you can take to adapt to these environmental changes to keep the quality of your indoor air in top shape. Paying attention to your ventilation system helps keep your family healthy throughout the seasons. Receiving HVAC services in the Greater Toronto Area from A-Plus Quality will help you keep your home free from air quality issues throughout the year.

Changes in the Spring
In the springtime humidity levels rise bringing pollen, dust, and mold. People may experience allergies, colds, and other respiratory conditions. To improve the quality of your indoor air during the springtime, prevent pollen and dust from reaching your ventilation system. It's also wise to schedule regular house cleanings and keep your HVAC unit free from any type of build-up such as mold.

Changes in the Summer
Temperatures in the summertime rise to their highest levels of the year. Mold and dust are a problem as in the case when dust blows out of the vents - affecting those who are sensitive to it. Increasing temperatures require the air conditioning unit to run more often creating lower humidity inside homes, which can affect individuals with sinus problems. Incorporating more outdoor air into the HVAC unit intake helps balance humidity levels. To have air quality consistency, be sure to calibrate between the outdoor air intake and the indoor air quality.

Changes in the Fall
The year's highest level of mold is seen in the fall due to extra moisture in the air and the decay of vegetation. Wind and temperature play a role in how much mold is transported indoors. Be sure to keep your indoor space well ventilated to prevent the overgrowth of mold inside. Pay attention to leaks around the house or signs of mold issues such as the paint on the walls. Deal with mold issues immediately and keep your ventilation system circulating fresh air throughout the house.

Changes in the Winter
In the cold months of the year mold and humidity cease. However, this causes a dry environment indoors, which creates irritation of the eyes and nose. Respiratory infections are much more likely in dry air. It is important to have a humidifier in your home in order to feel comfortable and to avoid any health issues or physical damage to your home.

  • On July 8, 2021, A Plus Quality Inc installed a boiler in my house. The company did a great job. The manager, Shak, came to give me a very detailed estimate. He also followed up every steps. He had a good team to come to do the installation. After installation, they check and explaining to me everything before leaving. I am really impressed. Besides, the office manager, Sandi, was very helpful too. I would like to recommend A Plus Quality Inc to my friends.

FAQ

  • Most common Boiler Issues

    - Boiler fails to ignite
    - Low pressure
    - Strange Noises
    - Boiler is not responding to the thermostat
    - Cold Radiators
    - Boiler leaking or dripping
    - Boiler cycling very fast
    - Available Hot water but No Heat

  • What is a mini-split?

    By definition, and simply put, a “Split System” is a heating and air conditioning system which has two main components, the indoor unit and outdoor unit. In short, the indoor unit absorbs heat energy in the cooling mode, and the outdoor unit rejects the very heat absorbed by the indoor unit. And the cycle is repeated until the set temperature is met. Although the indoor and outdoor units are located in physically different, hence “split” locations, they are connected and operate as, one system; continuously circulating refrigerant liquid and vapor by means of interconnecting, dehydrated copper refrigerant lines, commonly referred to as a “Line Set”.

  • Furnace is blowing cold air in Winter?

    This can be due to Ignition lockout, sometimes could be resolved by resetting the power  and if this does not resolve the issue you should contact a certified gas technician from A-Plus Quality to get this problem resolved!

  • Why is there ice building up on the copper pipes?

    There can be many reasons why the refrigerant pipes are freezing up but the most common issue is low refrigerant levels. If your AC unit has ice buildup turn off the unit for at least 4 hours and call us at 416-410-0337

  • Why should I maintain my Furnace or AC?

    An annual maintenance will extend the lifetime of your heating and cooling unit. The technician will diagnose and repair any problem with the unit before it fails, so you won't need to worry about any problems when the weather gets very hot in the summer or extremely cold in the winter.
