As we move into the cooler months of fall and begin to spend more time inside, the indoor air quality becomes even more critical. If you or anyone in your family suffers from headaches, fatigue, sinus congestion, coughing, sneezing, trouble concentrating or irritation of the eyes, nose and throat, indoor air pollution could be to blame. Not only that, but with flu season rapidly approaching and the global pandemic continuing — both are respiratory illnesses — it is important to keep the lungs and airways healthy, strong and free of toxins.
Routine maintenance improves air quality
According to IQAir, a division of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that allows you to check the air quality of any place in the world, research indicates that once you have a respiratory illness, the quality of the air you breathe has a significant impact on your symptoms. Therefore, it is important to enlist professionals, like the ones at MoreVent, to help improve your indoor air quality directly through your HVAC system. Routine maintenance is one of the best ways to do this.
Air filtration systems
If you need more than just maintenance — for example, if someone in your home suffers from allergies or asthma — we can help by providing air filtration services. The Clean Air Defense System Air Ranger is an advanced filtration system that fits into your current HVAC unit but is capable of catching more particles than the average filtration system. Germicidal ultraviolet systems is another option, disinfecting air through the use of light.
Easy steps to improve air at home
As a homeowner, there are some things you can do yourself that help to keep indoor air pollution at bay. Improved ventilation is a huge help for keeping toxins out of the home. The simple act of opening windows and allowing fresh air to circulate through the home can substantially impact the level of pollution inside. Using cleaning products, paints and other household products that are free from toxins can also be beneficial. Low volatile organic compound (VOC) paint and household cleaners that use essential oils instead of harsh chemicals are all readily available at most stores nowadays.
