How Important is Indoor Air Quality?

Air pollution doesn’t just occur outside. Find out how to get cleaner air inside your home.

Does the air inside your home feel a bit stale? Have your allergies gotten worse lately? Have you noticed a lingering musty smell in some parts of your home? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you may need a professional evaluation of your indoor air quality. 

You spend a lot of time inside your home, and if indoor air is too dry, too moist, or full of allergens, it can have a negative impact on your health. Fortunately, you can improve your indoor air quality.

Balancing Indoor Humidity

Warped floorboards, peeling paint, and doors that are difficult to open and shut may indicate you have too much moisture in your air. Excessive moisture can lead to more serious problems, like wood rot and mold growth, so it’s important to monitor and control indoor humidity. 

Overly humid indoor air is mainly a problem in the summer; in the winter, indoor air tends to be too dry, which can irritate sinuses and cause a buildup of static electricity in your carpet, clothing, or hair. Avoid those surprising little electrical shocks by adding moisture to the air with a whole-home humidifier!

Whole-home humidifiers and dehumidifiers help homeowners achieve optimum humidity any time of year. If someone in your home has allergies, you might also benefit from an air purifier. 

About Air Purifiers

Your HVAC system does trap dust and indoor pollutants, but most of its energy is diverted to heating and cooling your home (and when you’re not running the heat or air, the air isn’t being filtered). A whole-home air purification system has a much more powerful filtering process, and it purifies your air even when your furnace or air conditioner is turned off.
