If your family suffers from asthma or allergies, it’s important that the air quality in your Vero Beach, Florida, home is good. With the right strategy, you can make the air in your home cleaner so that your family can breathe easier. Here are a few tips for reducing the number of pollutants in your home:
Reducing the moisture in your home’s air is one of the simplest solutions for improving indoor air quality. In addition to making sure that your air conditioner works properly, install a dehumidifier in your home. By doing so, you’ll limit the amount of moisture in it. When your home is drier, there will be fewer irritants in the air. As a result, your family will be less vulnerable to allergy and asthma attacks.
Install a New Air Filter
A dirty air filter in your HVAC system is one of the biggest culprits behind reduced indoor air quality. If you notice that your family’s asthma or allergies are worse than normal, check the air filter for dirt and debris. If you have a clogged filter, change it. You should change your air filter every 30 to 90 days to maintain good indoor air quality.
Schedule Duct Cleaning
Another way to reduce indoor pollutants is to have your ductwork cleaned by an HVAC professional. Pollen, dirt, debris and other items can easily build up in your ductwork. When you allow these irritants to collect, they can lower the air quality in your home. An HVAC professional will be able to fully clean your ductwork. They can also identify issues that may be allowing pollutants into your home, such as leaks in your ducts.
