Tips to Keep the Indoor Air Quality High in Your Central Florida Home This Spring

Tips & Tricks - indoor air quality

It’s Spring, and for a lot of our friends, that means spring cleaning. For some, it’s time to get out and enjoy spring sports. And for some, it means more time spent indoors, as all the trees go into bloom, pollen allergies get bad, affecting indoor air quality.

Trust me, I don’t blame you if your Spring plans involve sitting inside and watching your favorite shows. The oak pollen alone can make things a nightmare. But if you’re going to spend time inside, it’s best to keep the pollen outside. Along with dust, mold, mites… basically, it’s a good time to pay some attention to your indoor air quality.

Here’s a few tips:

  • Add a UV light to your system! Hot, humid summer is on its way, and that means danger from mold and mildew. A UV light in your HVAC system can kill off those harmful microbes before they circulate through your house.
  • Use a dehumidifier. Even though your A/C will help keep the moisture down, it’s not designed to balance your humidity. It’s designed to keep you cool. A whole-house dehumidifier will keep you cooler and keep mold and mildew down.
  • Think about using a stand-alone air cleaner. Whether it’s an electrostatic air cleaner or a filter-based model, an air cleaner can give a boost to your indoor air quality and take the pressure off your furnace and A/C filters.
  • Speaking of which, replace your air filters! A clogged filter won’t make you very happy when it’s keeping that cool air from flowing through your home. And when the air doesn’t flow, it doesn’t reach your dehumidifiers and germicidal UV lights and filters. Replace filters once a month.
  • Keep your home tidy. Replace, boil or bleach your kitchen sponges once a week to kill off bacteria, declutter your living areas so dust and moisture can’t hide, take off your shoes inside the front door so you don’t track dirt in, etc. Do a little Spring cleaning!

AC Service Testimonials

Excellent

I had an excellent service call with Daniel today. He quickly diagnosed the problem with my ac and explained the issues, all my options, and prices. He explained everything to me such that I understood what was going on, and felt totally comfortable with the decision I made. The office staff was excellent, as well. I plan to replace my ac before year's end and will definitely purchase from Scott's. Thank you! It's so great to do business with competent, courteous, and efficient individuals.
The professionalism of the parties I spoke with and/or met spoke words. Things were explained in terms I could understand throughout the process. Even though the instillation took 2 days due to some issues, the team did their best to have my AC replaced and running by the end of day 2 and kept us comfortable in the mean time. I highly recommend this company for any AC needs…
Scots can always be counted on to keep our AC running properly with friendly, on time, professional technicians.
I had a new unit installed back in 2022 and have been having regular maintenance twice yearly since then. All has been well. Today I was scheduled for maintenance once again and my unit was taken care of, but my technician Allen pointed out that my other unit outside (not installed or maintained by Scott's) had frayed wires on the outside condenser which would soon lead to a short on that unit. He offered to get me a quote to fix that and I agreed to receiving a quote. He was able to provide the fix right away and had that taken care of in less than an hour. I really appreciated the extra attention he paid to the overall area, and that he was willing to repair something that was not installed by his company. It was his genuine concern that took precedence. I will continue to recommend this company and will most likely have them as my provider when that second unit needs replacement.
