Tips For Your Health And Indoor Air Quality

air conditioning service in AngolaWith the health of many people plagued with symptoms of hayfever, allergies, asthma and other respiratory ailments, it’s become necessary that homeowners pay attention to ways that they can help to improve indoor air quality. It is estimated that the levels of air pollutants indoors may be two to five times higher than outdoor levels.

The effects of poor indoor air quality can affect more than those people with respiratory issues; symptoms of pollutant-filled air can include headaches, sleepiness, nausea, disorientation, and many others. Fortunately there are some things you can do, and things your air conditioning service in Angola can do, to improve the quality of the air in your home:

  • Have everyone remove their shoes as they enter your home to avoid tracking in lawn chemicals, dirt, mud, grass, and more
  • Keep the mold and mildew away – try to keep the humidity level in your home below 50% and make sure there is proper ventilation in damp areas
  • Make sure you regularly check and replace the filters for your heating and cooling system. A Fort Wayne AC repair technician should replace at your annual tune-up
  • Consider an air purifier that is of the appropriate size for the room in which it will be installed by a certified technician
  • When you cook, be sure you turn on the exhaust fan above your stove to prevent noxious vapors and smoke from going into the air
  • If you have pets, be sure to bathe and groom them regularly to keep hair, dander and dirt at bay
  • Dust and sweep frequently. Dust with a damp cloth or sponge to prevent dust and dirt from being flung into the air in your home

While these are just a few things you can do to improve your indoor air quality, there are many courses of action available; a certified home comfort advisor can meet with you to discuss additional means and recommend a plan of action.
