The indoor air quality in your home is more essential to your health and comfort than you might realize. For allergy suffers, people with asthmatic tendencies, or those with respiratory issues, having premium air quality within your home is mandatory. There are many contributing factors that can enhance the better air quality in your home. Some are obvious, where others may be not so much.
Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning suggests some tips to improve the indoor air quality in your home.
Change Home Air Filters: Air filters are one of the more important maintenance tasks you need to do to help with improving the air quality of your home. Investing in positive traits and excellently manufactured filters can also help maximize positive effects. Air filters should be changed or cleaned, depending on the type of filter, a minimum of once every three months. If there are frequent smokers, those prone to allergies or asthma attacks, or if there are pets; check the filter every month, and change or clean as frequently as they are needed.
Room Air Purifiers: A purifier can help remove contaminants in the air. They are beneficial to asthmatic and allergy sufferers, and can help reduce or even eliminate second-hand smoke affects. Dust, pollen, mold, mildew, bacteria, germs, pet dander, dust mites and other particles that can trigger allergies in people are all particulates that an air purifier can dramatically reduce or even eliminate within the air you breathe.
Whole House Humidifiers: Humidifiers have been known to improve the indoor air quality as well. For those suffering in dry climates like Las Vegas, humidifiers could be an added benefit. Humidity control is important to minimize growth of mold, bacteria, viruses and dust mites. With added moisture in the air means that the dust and other pollutants are able to circulate, in so doing your indoor air quality can improve. Additionally, humidifiers can reduce static electricity, wood throughout the home from cracking, decrease dry nasal passages and eliminate itchy dry skin.
Dehumidifiers: While local Las Vegans are not likely to need a dehumidifier, we did include them here for our out of state blog readers! For those suffering in intense humid climates, a dehumidifier will contribute to air quality. Pathogens and mold growth can flourish in overly humid conditions, resulting in poor quality, especially those influenced by allergies and asthmatic triggers. Like the humidifier, dehumidifiers can help control the humidity levels in your home to improve the indoor quality in your home.
Tips to further improve your indoor air quality: The indoor air quality can be enhanced by simple things that help on a smaller scale, but can still add up.
– Clean. Where that may seem obvious, there are many times if people cannot see the dust, dirt and grime, it doesn’t get cleaned. Daily maintenance is still beneficial. Vacuum carpets, sweep and spot clean floors. These daily tasks can help reduce the junk from being wafted into the air by daily foot traffic. Periodically clean the curtains and upholstery. Reducing the dust in your home is helpful. Regular air duct cleaning is a must! Think of all the dust in your air ducts being pumped and recirculated into the air you breathe. Call Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning to remove it.
– Screens. On beautiful days when the weather beckons you to let in the favorable conditions, be sure to have window and door screens on. Fresh air is always a welcomed bonus, but allowing the outdoor pollutants free reign of your home sends the allergies through the roof.
