Cleaner air means better health! While we know that outside air pollutants can affect our health, many homeowners don’t realize that the air quality in their own homes may be more polluted and seriously affecting your health. Air circulation and moisture levels in your home are two of the major factors that contribute to poor indoor air quality and home safety.
Here are just some inexpensive ways you can begin to improve your home’s indoor air quality and provide your family with peace of mind this fall season.
- Clean Your Ducts –Allergy and asthma sufferers know all too well when it’s time to clean the air ducts because their eyes become irritated, throats get dry, and the sneezing is endless! Ducts are traps for all types of indoor pollutants such as dirt, dust, mold, pet dander, bacteria and other allergens. A good cleaning is the first step to breathing in cleaner air. A simple rule of thumb to follow, if your air ducts look dirty, they probably are. Hutchinson is available for duct cleaning in and around South Jersey for half of what the competitors are asking for. Call today to schedule an appointment.
- Replace Filters – Replacing your air filters once every 1-3 months can help improve the air quality in your home. Have you ever considered an electrostatic filter for your heating/cooling systems? An electrostatic filter produces an electric charge which captures more airborne particles than other types of filters available, making your air cleaner and healthier.
- Control Your Humidity – Cleaning your humidifier can keep your home more comfortable and help reduce mold & other moisture-related toxins. Many people find their homes more comfortable when their home’s humidity level is below 50%. Also, keep damp areas well ventilated for clean and healthy air all year round.
- Open Windows – As long as you don’t have allergies, open the windows to allow fresh air in and eliminate any stagnant inside air. If you can’t open the windows, consider an air purification system, which can further enhance the quality of the air indoors.
By reducing the toxins and allergens inside your home, not only will you be improving your indoor air quality, you will also improve your health as well as begin to breathe easier.
