How to Maintain Superior Indoor Air Quality in Your Home
Creating and maintaining great indoor air quality does not require spending a small fortune. Much of it happens by making small changes throughout your home and choosing the right products to use on a daily basis. Below are a few ideas to get you started.
Monitor the Additives to Your Air
It seems that all types of cleaners and household products emit some sort of scent that could begin to bring down the quality of your indoor air. Additionally, smoking indoors and not having things like a gas furnace properly vented can add to a buildup of odors and pollutants in the air you breathe.
To combat these issues, you can purchase and use as many products as you can that are free of scents and odors. You should also operate vent fans when in the bathroom or cooking in the kitchen.
Keep the Home Well-Ventilated and Balanced in Humidity
As air-tight as most new homes are, it’s essential to have a way to properly ventilate your living space. Open windows on nice days that are low in pollen. Use ceiling fans to help keep good airflow throughout the home.
You can also add a dehumidifier system when the air seems too moist. High humidity can lead to problems with mold. However, having the air too dry can lead to allergy symptoms and sinus pain, so it’s important to keep the humidity in good balance.
Incorporate Ways to Bring in Fresh Air Through the HVAC System
Your HVAC system can be set up with a way to bring in maximum amounts of fresh air as it generates cooled air for the home. Bringing fresh air from the outdoors will make a big difference in improving the quality of air that is continually recycled through the system.
