What Are 5 Tips for Better Indoor Air Quality?

Posted On: September 23, 2022

Are you concerned about your home’s air? You can schedule indoor quality testing. There are clear signs that your home needs indoor air quality services, but some may also be hidden and hard to notice. Here are a few signs that you need assistance with your air quality:

  • Skin rashes
  • Severe allergy symptoms 
  • Difficulty breathing 
  • Dust buildup on furniture
  • Flu-like symptoms 
  • Stuffy atmosphere 
  • Excessive humidity 
  • Dry air 

5 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality 

There are several things that you can do to improve your health and safety with the help of some indoor air quality services, from handy devices to good practices. T.E. Spall & Son can offer indoor air quality testing to find out exactly what you need. Here are a few ways to improve your indoor air quality.

  1. Replace Your Air Filters Regularly

This is a simple but overlooked way to improve your air quality. Your air filter is responsible for preventing dust and debris from getting into your home from outside. When it gets clogged, it becomes less effective at keeping your air clean and creates internal problems for your HVAC unit. Air filters should be changed every 3 months or more often if you have to. Clean air filters will also help keep your electricity bills low.

  1. Annual HVAC Tune-Ups

Not only do HVAC tune-ups keep your HVAC system in good condition, but they also ensure that your air quality is maintained. When your HVAC unit is dirty, it decreases the quality of your air since the dirt gets into your home. You can schedule regular tune-ups with T.E. Spall & Son. We will clean all the dirt and mold that has settled in your HVAC system during the year.

  1. HVAC UV Light Installation

Air filters and tune-ups mainly focus on keeping the larger particles out of your home. A UV light will make sure that your family is protected from germs and contaminants, like fungi, bacteria, and viruses. HVAC UV light installations will give your home the best defense against harmful microorganisms and toxins. 

  1. Dehumidifiers and Humidifiers

While your HVAC unit is supposed to control your humidity levels, there may be other factors that make your home excessively humid. Excess moisture can cause mold and damage to your property. It may also aggravate pre-existing respiratory conditions like asthma. You can purchase a dehumidifier to remove this unwanted moisture. On the other hand, if your air feels dry, you can install a whole-house humidifier. Home humidifiers restore your home’s humidity to a healthy 30-50%.

  1. Carbon Monoxide Detector Installations

Carbon monoxide is a harmful gas that may be released by your gas-powered furnace if something is not right. The symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may be subtle, but they can be fatal. Having a carbon monoxide detector installed can help you and your family to evacuate your home and get help.
