You may not know it, but indoor air pollution is a serious environmental health hazard. In particular, exposure to airborne particulate matter can have an array of detrimental health effects. To keep your home healthy, you need proven indoor air quality solutions that work.
Target the Sources of Particulate Matter
From candles to dust mites, potential sources of particulate matter are everywhere in the typical home. One obvious way to reduce particle pollution is to remove or mitigate these sources, but that can be challenging. To make the job easier, consider scheduling a professional IAQ assessment. An air quality assessment can pinpoint troublesome pollutants and help you develop a plan to neutralize the sources in your home.
Step Up Your Air Filtration
Your HVAC system may have a built-in air filter, but that’s not enough to tackle serious particle pollution. Many particles are small enough to slip right through ordinary filters, but they won’t get past a high-performance air cleaner. Using advanced filtration technologies, dedicated air cleaners improve indoor air quality by eliminating up to 99% of airborne particulate matter. For best results, consult with an IAQ professional to select the right system for your needs.
Let Ventilation Do the Work
Ventilation is your home’s way of naturally expelling pollutants and refreshing the air in your living space. However, many houses today aren’t properly ventilated, resulting in particulate matter becoming trapped and accumulating over time. A whole-home ventilation system corrects this problem, providing a steady flow of fresh air to flush out pollutants. Energy recovery ventilators go even further, using energy from the outgoing air to treat the fresh air coming into your home. The result is passive, continuous air quality enhancement with very little impact on your home’s efficiency.
