The annual game of ping-pong between the heater and the air conditioner has resumed in the homes and businesses of our region, signifying that Spring is once again in the air–along with billions of mold spores, dust, pollen, bacteria and viruses. Mix these together with the ever-increasing humidity of the coastal climate that we call home and you’ll soon feel that familiar, unique swampy bouquet that makes up the air we breathe.

The spring and early summer is the perfect time to have your home or office HVAC system checked for cooling efficiency, cleanliness, comfort and overall indoor air quality for a number of reasons, and there’s no good reason why your AC closet shouldn’t get the same spring cleaning treatment as all the other rooms and closets on your annual to-do list. 

Here are a few signs that it might be time to have your HVAC system inspected and possibly cleaned before the hottest and most humid temps of the year arrive:

  • Condensation on AC vents or excessive sweating of the AC unit. 
  • A feeling of clamminess or high humidity inside, even when the AC appears to be running properly.
  • Excessive cycling of the AC system kicking on and off to maintain the thermostat setting. 
  • Clogged filters or occasional freezing of the AC coils above the filter.
  • A visible “blast radius” of dust on the ceilings or walls surrounding the AC vents. 
  • Musty odors in the home when the AC is running. 
  • Recurring respiratory symptoms that seem to diminish while you’re away from the building. 

These are just a few indications that your HVAC system may be in dire need of cleaning, upgrades or maintenance before serious health concerns begin to arise, not to mention the higher energy costs from a system that is not running at its optimum conditions. Excessive humidity inside a building, once corrected, will dramatically reduce the costs of cooling and increase the level of comfort and quality of the air you breathe inside. The same is true for an air duct and HVAC system cleaning when an IAQ specialist determines that there is a need.
