4 Affordable Ways to Improve Your Home’s Air Quality
Whether you’re an allergy sufferer or just want to ensure the air in your West Palm Beach home is generally clean, indoor air quality is a big a concern. The good news is that you can address your home’s air quality fairly easily and without a huge expense.
Maintain Your HVAC System
Dehumidification, air conditioning, and other systems can cause unhealthy levels of mold, mildew, and bacteria to build up if you’re not careful. Regular cleaning and maintenance will help to ensure that your home comfort systems perform efficiently, and aren’t negatively affecting your air quality.
Improve Your Ventilation System
You can just leave a window open to prevent your home’s air from getting stale during some months, but because of the searing heat and humidity, those times are fairly limited in Florida. Whenever you’re cooling down your home with air conditioning, you will also need to keep the windows shut. If your HVAC system struggles to draw in fresh air, recovery ventilators can help to bring in fresh air and eliminate stale air without sacrificing the comfort of your home.
Add Air Purification
While everyone can benefit from pure air, this is especially vital for those who suffer from allergies and chronic respiratory problems. You can help to keep the air in your home clean by following a regular cleaning regiment. Air purification systems can provide an added layer of protection for those who are ill. These systems effectively capture 95% of even the most minute pathogens including influenza and the common cold. They also effectively trap and kill 99% of germs, pollen, and mold.
Get an Air Quality Check
Since many of these pollutants cannot be easily detected, it is best to enlist the services of a qualified indoor air quality specialist. These specialists can detect problems and check areas in your home that you might not have considered. They can also provide advice regarding the best way to keep the air in your home fresh and clean — whether through indoor air quality systems or daily choices.
