Boost The Air Quality Inside Your Home

What is the quality of the air inside your home? Great? Poor? Average?

You may not know. It’s worth checking out, though, because air quality affects both health and day-to-day comfort. Poor indoor air quality can contribute to fatigue, headaches, concentration problems, and irritated eyes, throat, nose, and lungs. Specific illnesses are directly linked to contaminants in poor indoor air, including asthma.

What factors impact indoor air quality? Poorly circulating air, temperatures that are too high or too low, elevated or low humidity levels,  and other activities around the building can all affect the quality of air entering your home. Airborne contaminants such as dust from construction or remodeling, cleaning supplies, pesticides, and other chemicals also degrade indoor air quality. Proper ventilation can improve indoor air quality!

Improving the Quality of Indoor Air

The best way to boost indoor air quality is to eliminate sources of pollutants or to reduce their emissions.

There are three ways to achieve this:

  1. Improve ventilation by raising the volume of fresh air coming inside
  2. Change air filters regularly so they have full capacity to trap pollutants
  3. Filter and sanitize indoor air
