Improve the Air Quality of Your Home
While the rooms in your home are clean, the air inside of your house can be more polluted than the air outside. In households around the country there are common pollutants found each day — radon, bacteria, animal dander, toxins, chemicals from household products, and pesticides.
The EPA ranks indoor air pollution in the top 5 environmental dangers, but it isn’t just the environment that’s at stake; your health could be compromised as well. As increasing amounts of children develop asthma or serious allergies each year, it’s important to take preventative measures to keep your home safe. Luckily, JK Mechanical is here to help ensure that you’re breathing in the cleanest, freshest air possible while you’re in your home.
Find Out How Your HVAC and Ductwork Affect Air Quality
Your HVAC system is responsible for keeping the air in your home comfortable. Often, it can help to have additional equipment like humidifiers, air cleaners, UV lamps, and ventilators, but talk to a certified technicians first to ensure your home needs the extra help.
To further keep your HVAC and ductwork healthy and positively impacting your indoor air quality, follow these tips:
- Don’t place ductwork or cooling and heating apparatus in your garage or in places where they could potentially draw pollutants into your home.
- Be sure to vent your HVAC system directly outdoors so as not to recirculate contaminated air.
- Be wary of any excess water in your system, whether it comes from a leak or condensation building up on your heating and cooling coils—this moisture can cause mold and mildew to grow.
- Keep dirt from settling on your heating and cooling equipment by replacing dirty air filters.
