Let's talk about your Indoor Air Quality!
When's the last time you discussed allergies and how uncomfortable some of your family members are? Here are some suggestions to improve the indoor air quality of your home.
It's that time of year when we're in spring cleaning mode. The windows are open, fresh air circulates through every room of your home and your eyes itch, you've got a scratchy throat and are constantly sneezing. Sound familiar?
Because we don't stop to think about the downside of airing out our homes, we all take advantage of opening the windows and letting in that clean, fresh air. CLEAN? Did we say, clean? With all the pollen, dust, dander and particulates free-flowing throughout our homes, it's hard to think clean!
Seaonal allergies can be debilitating. The effects of pollutants in your a household environment can effect your sleeping, and interrupt your ability to take care of your household chores. Think about your children as they try to focus on homework. Do you work from home? If your environment is not comfortable, it's difficult for you to accomplish what you need to get done.
An Electronic Air Cleaner can remove particulates from the air in your home.
Changing your disposable filters monthly is an easy but important task. Your air conditioning contractor should include this as part of your annual tune-up and it should become a monthly activity.
The central air conditioning system in your home removes humidity which translates to water as the process continues. Some of this water may stand in the drain pan allowing mold to grow. This mold can be circulated throughout the duct system of your home. Consider a UV Light to remove and prevent mold.
