Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

woman-blowing-noseThe quality of the air in your home plays a large role in your overall comfort. Dirty air is going to hinder things more than you might expect. Poor indoor air quality is going to leave your HVAC system struggling to operate properly. It will also lead to issues with your respiratory health.

You don’t have to take this problem without help though. There is more than one way to address poor indoor air quality. With our expert services, you can enjoy cleaner air and better comfort in your home.

Make sure to change your system filter regularly

Your HVAC system filter is made to protect the system itself from the intrusion of large amounts of dust and debris. That said, it certainly isn’t going to hurt your indoor air quality either! Keeping your filter clean and fresh is going to ensure it captures the maximum amount of dust, preventing those contaminants from constantly circulating throughout the home. We advise switching out your system filter every one to three months.

Consider adding an air filtration system or an air purifier

You may also consider the installation of a system for air filtration in Fresno or air purification. These systems are installed within your ductwork where they address debris that is in the air flowing into your home. Air filtration systems use semi-permeable membranes to remove debris from the air. Air purifiers, use electricity or UV light to clean the airflow. Through the use of an air filter and/or air purifier, you can enjoy the best improvement of your home’s air quality.

Upgrade your insulation

Make sure to take your insulation into account as well. This part of your home may not move on its own but it does help your indoor air quality. It does this by providing a barrier layer that keeps cool air indoors and dirt and heat outside. If you are noticing drafts in some parts of your home, it may mean that insulation repairs or upgrades are a good idea as this will improve your comfort and your indoor air quality.

Schedule duct testing and sealing

One other way to ensure that you enjoy better indoor air quality is by ensuring your ducts are producing clean air as well. Duct testing can help a technician identify if your ducts have any leaks that are allowing dust and debris in the airflow. If any leaks are discovered, duct sealing can be used to address the problem and prevent the intrusion of additional debris.
