Have you started to notice a lot of dust around your home? You might be the cleanliest homeowner in Bluffton, South Carolina, but if you have poor indoor air quality, you’ll start noticing a wide range of signs and symptoms that feel impossible to avoid. The good news is that you can improve and prevent poor indoor air quality by following these tips:
Change Your HVAC System’s Air Filter
Your HVAC system’s air filter has an important job: It traps particle pollutants before they can collect in the ductwork and recirculate in your home. But if you don’t regularly change the filter and it clogs with debris, it won’t be able to perform its function.
You should check your HVAC system’s air filter every month, and you should change at least once every 90 days. If you suffer from allergies or have pets in your home, change it more frequently. As a result, you’ll take a vital step toward easing allergy symptoms.
Invest in an Indoor Air Quality Inspection
What you can’t see can’t hurt you, right? Wrong! While most particle pollutants are small enough to avoid detection by the human eye, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Ideally, you should schedule an IAQ inspection once per year to determine your home’s levels. Skipping this year after year can result in extremely poor IAQ.
Surround Yourself With IAQ Solutions
There are numerous devices available on the market that can help you combat poor IAQ, including air purifiers, energy recovery ventilators and dehumidifiers. After your indoor air quality inspection, your comfort specialist will be able to advise you on which solutions you should use to help maintain healthy IAQ in your home.
