While outdoor air pollution may be a concern for you, have you ever considered the quality of the air inside your home? In terms of providing a safe and healthy environment for your family, air quality is an important component. The following provides you with some simple ways to keep your inside air clean, pure, and fresh.
Humidifiers and Moisture
High amounts of humidity and moisture can make you feel sticky and may even affect your breathing. On the other hand, extremely dry air can cause sore, scratchy throats as well as dry skin and nasal passages. By installing a humidifier, you can regulate the amount of moisture in your home and even save energy. Other benefits of home humidifiers include the alleviation of warped furniture and a reduction in the use of your heater as the moist air makes you feel warmer without additional heat.
Another easy way to make sure your indoor air is free of contaminants is an air purifier. These systems work to clear your home of dust, pollen, mold, viruses, skin cells and flakes, pet dander, VOC’s (the gases from adhesives and wood products), and smoke. These contaminants can also damage your heating and cooling systems. By having a professional HVAC technician install an air purifier in your home, you can breathe easy and might even increase your over all well being.
Air Duct Cleaning
When it comes to cleaning the air ducts in your home, it is best left to the professionals. These ducts are very important in keeping your indoor air quality clean and free of pollutants as they route air from your heating and cooling systems to every room in your home. When the ducts become porous and have small leaks, they take in mold, viruses, pet dander, and dust. These particles and contaminants then get spewed out through the vents. When you schedule an air duct cleaning with a technician, they will take the following steps:
- Remove particles and debris using special brushes and compressed air.
- Using a strong vacuum system, they remove these from the HVAC system.
- The vacuum system has special filters to trap all contaminates.
After a professional duct cleaning you can expect to have fewer symptoms due to allergens and pollutants, less dust build up, fresher indoor air and a longer life span for your HVAC system.
