Improving your indoor air quality should be a top priority, regardless of whether or not anyone in your family suffers from a health condition that affects breathing, like asthma. In fact, it can be shocking for homeowners to learn that in many cases, indoor air quality is actually worse than outdoor air quality! Here are some things that you can do to improve the ease with which your family breathes:
Eliminate Any Sources of Pollutants
Perhaps the easiest way to improve indoor air quality in your home is to eliminate any sources of pollutants that exist and are contaminating the air. This includes any particularly dangerous contaminants, such as things like asbestos, as well as other things that you might think are harmless, such as chemical cleaners, paints, or even perfumes and other scented items.
Improve Air Flow
The next important step that you can take to improve indoor air quality is to improve the air flow within your home. You want to find a way to bring fresh air into the house (the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) explains that the majority of home heating and cooling systems do not automatically do this). As such, you’ll need to open windows and doors. Further, you should use a ventilation fan to increase the outdoor ventilation rate.
Invest in an Air Cleaner
If the air quality inside of your home just isn’t cutting it, even after improving air flow and eliminating sources of air pollutants, you should consider investing in an air cleaner. An air cleaner can also be great for homeowners who have pets, or when there are members of the family with certain respiratory or other health conditions. An air cleaning system features a filtration system that is extremely efficient at catching pollutants and other irritants. The Pure Air system, which is what our team at Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning installs, can also be paired with a self-adjusting humidifier for unbeatable air quality.
