Methods for Improved Indoor Air Quality
Pollution is commonly seen and smelled outside, but did you know it can easily get trapped inside your home? Many people don’t know that indoor air can have more than ten times as many chemicals as outdoor air. Use these suggestions from Eshenaurs to rid your home of airborne chemicals.
Tune-Up Heating & Cooling Equipment
Getting annual tune-ups and air filter changes of your HVAC equipment is one of the most efficient ways to improve the quality of air in your Pennsylvania home. Tune-ups include the cleaning or replacement of air filters, which do most of the work in catching airborne particles and bacteria. Plus, regular maintenance can boost your fuel efficiency and increase the reliability of your heating and cooling equipment.
Purchase a Carbon Monoxide Detector
All homes have smoke detectors, but they don’t all have carbon monoxide detectors. The alarm can plug into any outlet in your home and beeps loudly if it detects dangerous carbon monoxide. Pick one up at your local hardware store and install it near bedrooms and common living areas in your home.
Clean and Vacuum Regularly
Sweeping, dusting, and vacuuming are the best ways to reduce dust buildup in your home. Keeping up with household chores that reduce the buildup of dust, dander, and pollen will significantly improve the air quality in your house. The fewer airborne particles, the better the indoor air quality will be for your family.
