Is Your Indoor Air Clean?
Did you know that we spend more than 70% of our lives inside our homes? Oddly enough, the air in our homes can be more unhealthy than dirty air outside. So, what do you do to purify your air? Is it as easy as replacing your air filter in your A/C unit? Not necessarily…below, you can find the best next steps to achieving quality indoor air:
- Have your air ducts tested for leakage and sealed to minimize the amount of unwanted air entering your home. Most duct systems leak as much as 30% of the systems air flow. These leaks can draw dirty, unhealthy air from your attic and allow it to enter your home. Also, both utility companies offer incentives to have this performed.
- Have your air ducts professionally cleaned, after they are sealed, to remove any excess dust or allergens that have built up in the duct system, which can lead to poor air quality?
- Have an air quality test performed which will monitor and record potential issues of the indoor air quality in your home. This is an inexpensive test that will give you valuable information to determine if an air purification system is necessary.
- Based on the results of your air quality test, talk to your A/C contractor regarding the installation of a proper air purification system to reduce any areas of concern reported on the air quality test. These purification systems are installed on your A/C unit as it circulates air throughout your entire home.
