Pollutants trapped in our homes consist of dust, dust mites, cat and dog dandruff, paint, cleaning supplies, etc. Indoor air can be more polluted than outside air. Today’s homes are built to be energy efficient meaning that air is kept inside. Our homes no longer “breath” which is not good for air quality. Here are a few things we can do to improve air quality in our homes.
1. Change air filters on an average of every 3 months. Depending on our life
style such as traffic flow in/out or multiple house pets, some may have to change air filters more often than others.
2. If able, opening windows and doors are an easy and inexpensive way to improve air quality.
3. Have your duct system lines cleaned.
4. Have a fresh air ventilation system installed.
