How to Improve the Indoor Air Quality in Your Home

When you took that big step and became home-owners you probably thought a lot about all the decorations you would add to the house to make it feel like home, the bbq's you would host in the backyard, the birthday parties you'd plan, and the memories you'd make in the process. You probably didn't think much about maintenance or your heating and air conditioning unit. However, over time, you've probably realized that they require a lot of attention. Your home's air quality is directly affected by your heating and air conditioning unit. This becomes a problem when mold and bacteria start to form, blow into your home, and get inhaled into your lungs. 

How Can You Improve Air Quality?

First things first, you always want to keep your heating and air condition unit properly cleaned and maintained. This will drastically help keep your air safe. But there are products you can add to ensure your home has the best air quality possible. 

Air Purifiers

When it comes to Indoor air quality improvement, air purifiers are the best product you can buy. If you suffer from allergies or get frequent colds, an air purifier will help you breathe easier and sleep better. High-quality, in home air purification systems, kill up to 99% of germs, pollen, and mold captured. It also fights hard, and effectively, against many common pathogens. Installing an air purifier gives you peace of mind and the freedom to breathe deep, knowing that the air you breath is clean. 

Filters

It's important to use high-quality filters and to change them regularly. These filters will trap dust and allergens before they escape into the air that circulates in your house. Not only do they keep the air your breath fresher and cleaner, but they also help eliminate the "dust smell" in your home. 

UV Lamps

The thought of mold and bacteria growing on your air conditioning and heating unit, becoming airborne, and filling your house is unnerving. And while keeping your unit clean and installing an air purifier will definitely help eliminate that danger, going a step further isn't a bad idea. UV lamps were designed to successfully prevent the growth of mold and bacteria in your home. If there is any mold or bacteria growing on or around your AC coil, the UV lamp will kill it, keeping you safe from any exposure. 

Any and all of these options are effective when it comes to giving you the best air quality possible. So, if you want to breathe deep without worry, please contact us today. We look forward to helping you improve the quality of air in your home.

Essential and Effective Tips for Indoor Air Quality Improvement

The quality of the air in your home is essential when it comes to your family's health and well-being. However, you could be wondering what you can do to improve indoor air quality. Luckily, following these tips can help.

Stop Wearing Shoes in the House

First and foremost, encourage your family members to stop wearing shoes in the house. Doing so can allow you to bring in pollen and other debris from outdoors, which can affect indoor air quality. Plus, cutting down on wearing shoes in the house can also make household clean-up a whole lot easier.

Get Into a Dusting Routine

Dusting isn't known as being a favorite household chore. However, ensuring that you dust on a regular basis can help you cut down on dust and dander that floats around your home. Consider getting into a routine to ensure that this essential job is being done.

Skip Using Harsh Chemicals for Cleaning

Be careful about using harsh cleaning chemicals, air fresheners and other chemical-laden products. Instead, use natural products when you can to help prevent indoor air quality issues.

Keep Your HVAC System Well-Maintained

If your HVAC system isn't properly maintained, it could be dirty and dusty, which could affect your indoor air quality. Having your unit maintained on a regular basis can help prevent it from negatively affecting your indoor air quality and can help ensure that it works efficiently and effectively, too.

Change Your Filters Often

For indoor air quality improvement, make sure that you change your filters often. You can even purchase a specific air filter that is designed for indoor air quality improvement, such as one that is designed for people who have allergies.

Consider an Air Purifier or UV Lamp

There are specific air purifiers and UV lamps out there that are designed specifically for improving indoor air quality. If you are unsure of which system to choose, consider talking to your HVAC technician about your options.
