Keeping the air quality in your home healthy is important to prevent a number of health related problems. Introduction of unwanted air particles can cause asthma attacks, shortness of breath, itchy eyes, sore throat, chest tightness, and coughing. To avoid the reactions, we have compiled a list of some ways you can improve the air quality in your home:
• Boost air ventilation: it makes sense to increase the ventilation in your home so that unwanted air particles are removed. Opening your window once in a while may seem like the best thing to do, but in reality this is not the best solution. While you may be removing unwanted pollutants from inside your home, you will also be letting in pollutants from outside, which would be counterproductive. However, air ventilation systems such as those offered at All Year Cooling are the perfect solution.
• HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter: you can invest in a standalone HEPA filter, which draws in air via a fan. Their downside is noise, but can efficiently improve the air quality of your home.
• Get rid of dust: it goes without saying that in order to enjoy a dust-free home you have to take steps to remove it regularly. Therefore, make sure that all members of the household pitch in with the dusting chores.
• No smoking indoors: if you live with individuals that smoke, then create a strict policy of no smoking indoors. Additionally, don’t allow smoking by the window as smoke will still flow into the home.
By taking the tips above into account the air quality of your home will be improved significantly. This will positively impact the health of your family and the quality of life at home.
