3 HVAC Tips If You’re Expecting

Everything in your home has an impact on your pregnancy, even if you’re not paying attention. From stress to the quality of your breathable air, our lives are full of things that can be either negative or positive for us and our future children.

HVAC systems are an integral part of your home’s functionality. Without your heating system, for instance, your home would be exceptionally cold this year and you might end up dealing with health complications with your pregnancy as a result. That’s why we’d like to talk to you about the importance of HVAC service in Olympia, WA and how it relates to this particular aspect of your life.

Don’t worry, even if you’re living in a home that’s uncomfortable or that doesn’t feel safe, there’s always a solution to your problem. And our team prides itself on offering fast, affordable, and effective solutions that work.

Tip #1: Pay Attention to Air Quality

Air quality is a vital part of your home, and it might be impacting your health more than you realize. If you’re pregnant, this is an especially important concern since your poor air quality could be impacting the health of your newborn too.

First thing you can do is change out the air filter near your HVAC system. Or, if you’re too far along, call our team for help so we can do it for you. It’s a simple process that can remove a lot of dust and pet dander from the air in your house to make things feel better.

Then, consider investing in a proper air filtration system or air purifier. If your air is constantly making you sick every winter, then it might be due to biological contaminants like mold or bacteria that are floating through the air. A UV air purifier should be able to handle those contaminants with ease.

Tip #2: Stay Comfortable and Efficient

Do you want to turn the heat up, but you’re concerned about your home’s efficiency? It’s a real struggle, especially if you’re having hot or cold flashes while pregnant. One way you can nip this in the bud is with a smart thermostat upgrade.

Smart thermostats can automatically keep temperatures warm during the day while you’re awake, and then turn the temperature down at night while you’re asleep and snuggled up with layers and blankets. This will make a huge improvement to your heating bill without you feeling uncomfortable.

Tip #3: Call for Help When You Detect a Problem

Foul odors, high heating bills, strange noises… These are all problems that warrant a call to our team. A lot of people can ignore these symptoms of an imminent heating system breakdown, but you might be more aware of them than others.

Stay vigilant for your personal health, the health of your baby, and the health of your HVAC system. If you notice anything that feels out of the ordinary, from a bad smell (which could be leaking gas) to a loud sound, you should call our team so we can diagnose the issue and make sure your home is in good shape.
