When was the last time you replaced your air filter? Or when was the last time you had the air ducts in your home cleaned? If it wasn’t within the last 6 months, it may be time to reconsider how you approach air quality control in your home. Filters should be changed often, but even though they can trap hair and large dust particles in your heating and air conditioning systems, they don’t do too much to actually clean the circulating air. Indoor air pollution is considered one of the top five threats to public health, as it affects so many homes. Today we will discuss a few ways to minimize indoor air pollution in your home, and increase air purification.
Safer Air, Indoors
Unbeknownst to many homeowners, there are millions of particles of pollutants circulating in home air conditioning units, such as dander, pollen, dust, and even mold! These particles are actually irritants to our respiratory systems. In fact, these irritants are so potent, they can even cause people without preexisting respiratory issues to develop respiratory problems, such as asthma and allergies.
If you want to give your home the best defense against these pollutants, you should consider installing a home air purifier. There are many different devices designed to handle airborne pollutants, such as UV germicidal lamps, humidifiers, and ionic air purifiers. Using a mixture of these is your best best. The UV germicidal lamps zap microbes on contact, while humidifiers can control moisture levels in areas prone to mold growth. Utilizing these tools, you can ensure that your home will have safer air to breathe.
