How Does Your Fireplace Affect Your Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant-Air Learn how maintenance agreements can help you maintain healthy indoor air quality throughout the year.

What in the world do HVAC maintenance agreements and a nice, warm fire have in common? Your indoor air quality, that’s what. Fireplaces are great for keeping your home warm, but what does it do to your indoor air? If you have a wood-burning fireplace, you also need to have a maintenance agreement in place for your HVAC system, to make sure you’re not sacrificing your indoor air quality for the sake of a fireplace.

How Fireplaces Affect Air Quality

Fireplaces may release carbon monoxide, nitrogen monoxide, and, soot particles into the air. Carbon monoxide is particularly dangerous. It causes thousands of hospitalizations and hundreds of deaths every year. Nitrogen monoxide and soot particles can cause breathing problems such as asthma and bronchitis. Senior citizens, children and people with allergy problems are the most affected by these pollutants. However, they can negatively affect healthy people as well.

How Does a Maintenance Agreement Improve Indoor Air Quality?

An HVAC company should clean and maintain your heating and cooling system twice every year. Schedule the service in the spring before cooling season and again in the fall before you turn on the heat when the weather gets chilly. During fall maintenance, a technician will check your system for proper function, calibrate the thermostat, and inspect the entire system to be sure it’s running properly and safely.

A system that’s running properly is going to run more cleanly, helping to improve your indoor air quality. They will also make sure there are no ventilation issues. If need be, the maintenance crew may also recommend an air purification system. Such a system will keep your air clean year-round and prevent ongoing health issues.
