Maintaining the quality of the air inside your home is important for the health of your family. Many common household items can release harmful pollutants into your home that can create problems if left unchecked. Fortunately, there are many air quality solutions available that allow homeowners to greatly improve indoor air quality.
Homeowners are often surprised when they learn about the negative impacts accumulated chemical fumes can have on their family’s health. Many of the items in a home, such as flooring and furniture, can release potentially harmful gases. Items such as pesticides, smoke and even household cleaners can accumulate in your home and create unhealthy air quality. Allergens, mold, bacteria and viruses can also flourish inside your home.
Indoor Air Solutions
One of the simplest things that you can do to improve the air quality in your home is to have your ducts cleaned. This often overlooked step can clean years of dust and allergens from your air ducts, instantly improving the quality of the air being blown into your home. Having air ducts checked for leaks and sealed can also help to ensure that contaminants are not entering your air ducts and being blown throughout your home.
Another strategy that homeowners can use to retake control of their indoor air quality is to invest in an air filtration system. Adding air filtering capability to your existing HVAC system can remove as much as 99% of pollutants from your indoor air, allowing your family to breathe much easier. Equipping your home with detectors designed to flag elevated levels of deadly hidden gasses such as carbon monoxide and radon is another simple step that homeowners can take to protect the air quality inside their home.
Mechanical ventilation systems are another option homeowners can use to refresh the air inside their home. There are a variety of systems available that give you the ability to pump filtered air from outside into your home and pump indoor contaminants out, recycling stagnant indoor air and clearing out unseen toxins. Some ventilation systems even incorporate heat recovery features that also allow homeowners to save money on heating and cooling their home.
With so many solutions available, a consultation with a professional HVAC contractor could be an important first step towards improved air quality. Better indoor air quality can offer you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family is being protected from harmful pollutants and toxins.
