As more people button up their homes tight to prevent costly cooled and heated air from escaping, indoor air quality is becoming more of a concern. After all, the air in your home or business can directly affect your health. Unfortunately, air quality can be impacted by a number of things, including:
Take a look at these five ways to improve your indoor air quality and breathe fresher air.
Like any other surface in your home, your ducts can suffer from accumulations of dust and debris. When ducts get dirty, however, they tend to transport particulates throughout your home as they blow cold or hot air for your comfort. Duct cleaning can rid your indoor space of these particulates while helping boost your indoor air quality.
Single room or whole-home air purifiers can help filter out many of the pollutants found in indoor air. whole-house units are typically considered add-ons for existing HVAC equipment. They filter the air that runs through your home’s ductwork.
Poor ventilation can decrease your air quality by trapping pollutants in your home or business. You need a constant flow of fresh air from the outdoors to maintain a healthy environment. Ventilators pre-treat the incoming air while providing energy savings by reducing the load your AC or heater must handle.
Keeping up with regular maintenance can greatly improve your air quality. Changing your air filters on a monthly basis is a great way to enhance the flow of fresh air. You can also take advantage of service agreements to ensure ideal efficiency and air quality.
If you have a system with ductwork, you may want to consider installing UV lamps. These products neutralize and kill microscopic organisms in your ducts to prevent them from circulating throughout your air and weakening your household’s health.
