The quality of the air inside your home is directly related to the quality of the health of you and your family.
When the air quality is poor in your home, it can lead to a multitude of health problems like allergies, respiratory infections, and migraines.
The first thing you can do to improve the purity of the air in your home is to change your air filter frequently. Your air filter works to remove all of the dust, pollen, and other pollutants from the air, and over time these filters can become clogged, making it difficult for your HVAC system to circulate the air around your home, and worse, distributing pollutants into the air in your home. Most HVAC professionals recommend changing your air filter every 30-60 days, especially if you have pets. Another thing that homeowners can do to improve the quality of air inside their homes is to use a dehumidifier. A dehumidifier works to remove moisture out of the air in your home, which can help to improve the indoor air quality. Lowering the humidity in your home is a great way to reduce the amount of airborne pollutants that may be in the air inside your home. Dehumidifiers can be purchased as standalone units that can be plugged into any room to remove the moisture out of that room, or they can be installed in-line with your existing HVAC system in order to treat the whole house. The most important thing that homeowners can do to maintain the best indoor air quality is to have regularly scheduled maintenance and inspection of your HVAC system. An HVAC professional will be able to identify air quality problems before they arise, ensuring that you and your family are breathing the cleanest air possible.
