Ways to Control Pollutants in Your Household

Ways to Control Pollutants in Your HouseholdIndoor pollutants can significantly reduce your comfort level by creating unpleasant odors, irritating your eyes and nose, and triggering allergies and asthma. Controlling these pollutants will make your home a more pleasant place to live. Here are a few effective ways to improve your indoor air quality.

Remove pollutants at their source — Control the source of pollutants and they won’t have the chance to escape into your home’s air. Take out the trash regularly and clean your home, including dusting and vacuuming, at least weekly. Make sure strong-smelling materials such as cleaners, solvents, paints, or insecticides are stored in tightly sealed containers. Run kitchen ventilation fans when cooking any foods that are likely to leave strong odors behind. Avoid smoking in your home and eliminate the use of candles, incense, or strong air fresheners.

Increase ventilation and airflow — Provide a way for more fresh air to flow through your home from the outdoors. Open doors and windows when outside temperatures allow it. Put fans in windows to help pull in more fresh air from outside. Install a whole-house ventilation system that will bring in clean air from the outside while venting away stale air from the inside of your home.

Keep clean filters in your HVAC system — The air filters in your heating and cooling equipment provide important air cleaning, removing particulates such as dust, pollen, and dander as air flows through your HVAC system. Check these filters at least once a month and change them when they get dirty or clogged. Remember that dirty air filters can also interfere with the airflow your HVAC equipment needs to operate properly.

Install air cleaners — Have a whole-house air cleaner installed to provide extra filtration of the air flowing through the HVAC system. These cleaners use highly efficient filters to remove significant amounts of particulates and other pollutants. Use small, room-level air filtration system in areas that need even more air cleaning.

Great Company

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
