What Is Home Comfort?
In the United States, in the early 1900s, “ the first electric fans appeared in homes,” bringing relief from the sweltering heat and humidity, making people more comfortable. The discovery of refrigeration for cooling and storing food gave us the technology that would be the mainstay of modern refrigeration for decades.
In 1903, the first air conditioner was born, and by the 1950s, window air conditioners began appearing in homes throughout the United States. The houses were comfortable for the first time. Then the 1970s brought us “Comfort at its best.” The introduction of Central Air conditioning gave a new meaning to the word “air conditioning.”
The function of AC evolved from a means for cooling the air into a fantastic system of mechanical, electrical, and chemical mechanisms for heating, cooling, controlling humidity, filtering contaminants, ventilating, and circulating the air in your house. That system is called HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air conditioning) and is essential for maintaining the air quality and comfort in your home. And along with warmth and light, luxuries and safety contribute significantly to your quality of life.
We Care Heating, and Air Conditioning offers AC repair in Irvine to keep your HVAC system running at optimal levels. We offer yearly comprehensive tune-up packages to keep you comfortable from season to season.
HVAC and Indoor Air Quality
HVAC maintains the indoor air quality in the home, which has a significant impact on health. HVAC maintains the comfort level and livability of your home. And if your HVAC is faulty, the air quality in the house suffers and can produce hazardous conditions that severely affect your health, safety, and comfort.
The dangers of poor air quality
- Airborne chemicals (carbon monoxide)
- Infectious Bacteria
- Dangerous Contagions
- Biological contaminants

HVAC and Outdoor Air Quality
The outdoor air in Irvine leaves a lot to be desired. Pollution levels can have adverse consequences on your health and can enter the atmosphere of your home through leaks and even the air exchange of your AC. If your HVAC is operating optimally, it can protect and safeguard your home from bad air entering from day-to-day.
Being prepared for the worst also contributes to the comfort level in the home and a sense of safety. Many residents in Irvine live in what is known as the Wildland/Urban Interface (WUI). In the WUI, structures and development blends with undeveloped areas having dense vegetation.
When disaster strikes, whether it be wildfires, earthquakes, or some other unforeseen event, the conditions outside the home can become hazardous. When smoke and debris fill the air, your HVAC can guard the interior of your home from the particles coming into the house from the outside.
If your HVAC is old or not well-maintained, smoke and particles and even moisture can accumulate in the workings of your AC system, causing it to become faulty and break down. But, even worse, smoke and particulates can enter the indoor air of your home, impair your breathing, and threaten your health.
