An Indoor Air Quality Check Will Identify Your Home’s Pollutants
Air quality is a major health concern in many American homes, and an indoor air quality check is a quick and easy way to find out what is polluting your home’s air. There are some simple, common sense steps you can take to improve your air quality, such as opening windows when you can, smoking outside, and using vent fans in bathrooms and kitchens.
Here are three ways air conditioner maintenance can improve your indoor air quality check results.
- Replacing your air filters on a regular basis is the easiest, most effective step you can take to improve indoor air quality. These filters trap all kinds of pollutants in your home’s air, so change them out at least once a month.
- Keeping your indoor humidity between 30 and 50 percent will help keep indoor allergens like dust mites, mold, and pollen under control. Air conditioners naturally reduce indoor humidity, so consider running a humidifier when the AC is on.
- Having your air ducts cleaned regularly is an excellent way to get rid of pollutants. You would be surprised to see what gets stuck in your ducts!
Lead paint, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), allergens, and chemicals from cleaning products can each compromise the quality of your indoor air. Getting an indoor air quality check will tell you exactly what is polluting your home’s air and lead you to specific steps to improve its quality. One good way to help prevent indoor air quality problems, in the first place, is to purchase an HVAC service plan.
