Indoor Air Quality More Important Than Ever Before
During the coronavirus pandemic that has swept the world, the recommendations for staying healthy to have ranged from frequently washing one’s hands to practicing social distancing to maintaining a healthy diet and more. One thing that we do know, though, is that the risk of spread is greater indoors. While the summer has provided ample opportunity for social distancing outside, as we move into winter, outdoor opportunities may become more limited. As such, it’s more important than ever before to ensure that the quality of air inside our homes is high. While maintaining indoor air quality may not prevent spread, it could help to mitigate it. What’s more, clean indoor air can also help to reduce eye, nose, and throat irritation, keep asthma at bay, and lower the chances of respiratory distress.
Indoor air quality is more important than ever before. Here are some tips for keeping the air inside your home clean–
Dust, dander, pet hair, and more are quick to gather. The easiest way to address these things is to make sure that you’re vacuuming regularly. Be sure to attend not just to the floor, including both hard surfaces and carpet, but also to couches, sofas, and even the bed, too.
Change Your A/C Filter
If you haven’t done so in the last couple of months, you should change your A/C filter, especially if you have pets. Keeping the filter clean will help to collect dust and dander that circulate in your home. Replacing the filter is a very easy task, but if you need help, our team at Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning is happy to assist.
Use Indoor Plants
Indoor plants are amazing, taking in CO2 and putting out oxygen. They can help to keep the air in your home fresh, and are also a great aesthetic, too.
A huge part of air quality is humidity. Too much humidity and you might worry about mold growth; too little humidity and things get too dry, leading to a dry throat and nose. The perfect humidity level can be achieved with the help of a humidifier. At Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning, we can help you to find the right humidifier for you.
Invest in an Air Cleaner
Finally, installing an air cleaner in your home is a great idea, especially if you are someone who struggles with allergies, asthma, or other respiratory distress. Our team can handle air cleaner installation and maintenance.
