Did you know that the quality of the air inside your home is not only important for your comfort, but also for your health? We spend a lot of time thinking about pollution in the air outside. However, many homeowners don’t realize the importance of reducing pollutants in their home’s air as well. Poor indoor air quality can aggravate allergies and asthma. It has also been linked to headaches, fatigue, sinus congestion, trouble concentrating, and irritation of the eyes, throat, and lungs. In this week’s blog, Gold Star Services explains the important steps you can take if you are wondering how to improve indoor air quality in your home.
How to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
The most effective way to improve indoor air is to eliminate sources of pollutants or reduce their emissions. There are several ways to achieve this!
HVAC System Maintenance
Regular maintenance is an effective way to clean your home’s air. Changing your air filters often, improving ventilation, and cleaning your system and ductwork helps to remove dirt and debris and make sure it isn’t circulating in the air. In addition, a professional precision tune-up ensures that your HVAC equipment is running at or near factory specifications. This will improve indoor air quality, reduce costly breakdowns, increase efficiency, and lower utility bills. Plus, it will increase the life of your system.
Looking for the best method for how to improve indoor air quality? Several advanced methods of whole-house filtration are available. These include:
- Whole-house air filter systems like AirRanger™. This air filter installs into your existing HVAC system and is 97% efficient at capturing particles from breathable air.
