How Furnace Repairs & Maintenance Improve Air Quality, Coweta, Oklahoma

Keeping your windows open during the spring and summer brings fresh air into the house, but indoor air quality can suffer when the windows are closed all winter. Keeping up with furnace repairs and maintenance schedule keeps the air in your home clean and safe to breathe. The heating and cooling contractors at Bowman Heating & Air in Coweta, OK, recommend taking care of these tasks before the start of winter, so your furnace is ready to keep the air clean all season long.

The Relationship Between Furnace Repairs & Indoor Air Quality

Air Filters

furnace repair Coweta OKFurnaces distribute heated air through the house, so its condition has a direct impact on the cleanliness of the air your family breathes. The system’s air filters are designed to catch particles like pollen, dander, and dust mites before they enter your home. A clogged or damaged air filter allows contaminants to circulate, diminishing indoor air quality and leading to respiratory health problems like allergies. The filters should be changed early in the season and checked once a month. If they are dirty, they need to be cleaned or replaced.

Carbon Monoxide

Homeowners who have gas furnaces also need to be concerned with the release of carbon monoxide. This gas is a natural byproduct of the propane and natural gas used to fuel most heating systems. A well-maintained furnace will safely channel the gas out of the home through an exhaust pipe. If it leaks into the home, both people and animals are at risk for carbon monoxide poisoning, a potentially fatal condition. Scheduling furnace repairs as needed reduces the likelihood of encountering this problem.

Routine maintenance is crucial for protecting your family’s health through improved indoor air quality. Hiring Coweta’s best contractors to perform furnace repairs ensures your system is in good hands.
