If you find that your Cutler Bay, Florida, home feels stuffy, or you have an excess amount of dirt and dust covering your furniture, it may be time to clean up the quality of your indoor air. Indoor air pollution can be more than a nuisance; it can make your family ill. Indoor air pollution can trigger asthma and allergy attacks, and improper levels of humidity can encourage pathogens to grow. Here are four effective ways to improve your indoor air quality so that you and your family can feel comfortable in your home:
One of the first steps you can do to improve your indoor air is to clean regularly. Vacuum, mop, and dust using a damp cloth to collect dirt and pet hair. Don’t forget to regularly wipe down and clean your HVAC system’s registers and vents, wipe down window blinds and wash your bedding often.
Install a Whole-Home Purification System
When your home is sealed tightly and you are running your air conditioner or furnace, you are breathing recycled air. That is why it is important that the recycled air is clean. Adding a whole-home air purification system to your existing HVAC system can help to expel stale air, improving your indoor air quality.
Control the Moisture
If the moisture levels are too high, condensation can form that may invite dust mites to thrive. Dust mites can trigger allergy and asthma attacks. By adding a central humidifier to your HVAC system, moisture can be maintained at a comfortable and safe level.
Ventilate Your Home
The Trane FreshEffects™ Energy Recovery Ventilator can greatly improve your indoor air quality. The system exhausts stale air out of your home and brings in fresh air that has gone through an extensive filtration process to reduce pollutants and contaminants from entering your home.
With these four simple steps, you can breathe cleaner and better air. Improve your indoor air quality today by calling RCI Air Conditioning Company at 305-307-5348.
