If the indoor air quality in your home is not optimal, you and your loved ones could suffer adverse health complications, including an aggravation of allergy and asthma symptoms, fatigue, headaches and other issues. Fortunately, there are three easy steps that you can take to ensure your indoor indoor air quality is safe and clean:
- Install detectors for radon and carbon monoxide throughout your home. These invisible gases can be lethal if you are exposed to them for long enough, and detectors are the only way to be alerted to their presence.
- Change the air filter in your home’s furnace. Before your furnace blows the warmed air back into your home, it passes through a filter to remove impurities. If the filter is dirty or torn, it cannot filter the air properly and impurities will slip through. For best results, use the air filter recommended for your specific furnace.
- Purchase an air purifier. Air purifiers clean your home’s air by removing tiny particles and impurities, such as mold spores, dust, pet dander and odor, to improve your indoor air quality. There are various types of air purifiers each with their own advantages and disadvantages. If your budget allows it, consider purchasing a whole-house air purifier to keep the air constantly clean.
