An increasing amount of people are suffering from allergies and allergy like symptoms within their home, and that’s where most of their time is spent. So, what gives? The air we breathe inside our homes can contain various types of pollutants that can be the cause of various symptoms. Indoor air quality becomes poor when there is inadequate ventilation in a home and not enough outdoor air comes into the space to dilute these emissions. Although, not all ailments and allergies can be cured by improving your indoor air quality but it can help reduce the buildup of pollutants that are filtering into the air, causing some of these symptoms.
- Minimize the use of harsh cleaners, chemicals, and strong fragrances
- Try to perform household tasks such as painting, paint striping, gluing, sanding, and polishing outside of the home
- Keep the moisture in your home around 50% by using humidifiers and dehumidifiers when necessary – seam humidification units and whole house dehumidifiers are great choices to solve these issues
- Open windows and doors when possible to help dilute indoor air emissions – if you are like many people who transition from central air to heat without opening windows, an HRV unit may be the right fit
- Take advantage of air filtration products such as high efficiency central air and heat purification systems to help remove certain contaminants, such as pollen, mold & pet dander
- Use HEPA vacuum cleaners to help reduce dust and pollutants within the home
- Run bathroom vents when showering
