Indoor air quality tends to drop during the winter, as homeowners change their climate control habits. Poor indoor air quality can have a serious negative effect on the health and comfort of the people in a home. So, it’s important that you take steps to maintain high indoor air quality this winter. Let’s go over some tips to improve your indoor air quality over the next couple of months.
The average home is full of all kinds of indoor air contaminants, including pollen, dander, dust, germs, and mold spores. Inhaling large amounts of these contaminants over a long period of time can cause all kinds of health issues, from allergy attacks to flu and beyond. The best way to deal with airborne contaminants is to install an air purifier in your home. Air purifiers are designed to remove airborne contaminants from your home’s air supply. The methods they use to do this will differ between model types. Ionization purifiers use clouds of ions to collect airborne contaminants. UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill or sterilize germs and mold spores. You should have a professional evaluate your home to determine what the best air purifier for your needs would be.
Humidity is kind of a constant problem for homes in Florida. Chronically high humidity levels promote mold growth in dark areas of the home, and make it more difficult for your body to regulate its temperature. The best way to solve this is with a dehumidifier, which will remove the excess humidity to correct the levels in your air.
