Why is the Air So Bad?
Air pollutants are everywhere, but the top five issues in the United States all come from indoor pollutants. These include things like:
- Dust particles
- Combustion products
- Volatile organic compounds
- Excess moisture
Pollutants trapped inside your make the air stale and stuffy. It can be hard to breathe and have an odor to it after a while. Anyone exposed to these things is at risk for health problems. If someone in your family has a weak immune system or lung problems, it can be even more dangerous. Low indoor air quality can lead to allergies and things such as headaches. But there are things you can do to prevent or lessen the problem.
Maintain Your Ventilation System
Get on a regular HVAC maintenance system. Fall and spring are the optimum times to have your system inspected and cleaned. Change the filters regularly. Check your manufacturer’s guide for recommendations on how often they should be changed. We can also install high-efficiency air filters for you that do a better job than the standard filter. Use exhaust fans in kitchens and bathrooms to remove smoke and moisture.
