3 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

If you saw a big gust of wind packed with dust and debris headed your way, would you just walk into it with your eyes open? Likely not!

If you knew about the level of debris that could be floating around in your home, you might not want to spend too much time indoors either. But what are you going to do, in mid-summer, if you have poor indoor air quality? The air may be fresher outside but it is also extremely hot and uncomfortable.

What do you do?

Hopefully, you reach out to us because we can help. With one of our expert technicians, you can work to figure out which indoor air quality system or service that will clean up the air flowing throughout your home.

What Impacts Your Indoor Air Quality

There are many airborne contaminants that can get into your house. Unfortunately, with new homes being well-sealed, this means that these contaminants usually stick around for a long time, being recirculated by your HVAC system.

These contaminants can include things like:

  • Dust
  • Fur
  • Pollen
  • Scent-causing particles
  • Mold spores
  • Viruses and bacteria

Since fresh air can’t get into a home as easily anymore, it means that your indoor air quality may suffer, even if your home is the right temperature. The problem is this can still contribute to discomfort.

3 Ways To Improve Your Indoor Air

So, how do you improve your indoor air quality? We have three ideas that can help.

  1. Clean out your ductwork: The contaminants circulating around your home may collect within your ductwork, hindering airflow and messing with your indoor air quality. This is why air duct cleaning in Aztec, NM is a great service to invest in. Our experts will use the appropriate tools to get that debris out of your ductwork, leaving it clean and clear.
  2. Install an air filtration system: An air filtration system is also going to be a great investment. This system uses a semi-permeable membrane to capture dust and other debris, keeping them out of your home’s airflow. The filter will be installed in your ductwork where it will help remove a wide range of contaminants from the air before they reach you.
  3. Add an air purification system: Another indoor air quality system to consider is an air purification system. Using either electricity or UV light, an air purifier will clean up the air flowing through your ductwork. Electric purifiers are able to capture and remove contaminants while UV light purifiers destroy contaminants or alter their DNA to render them harmless. These systems are especially helpful against mold spores, viruses, and bacteria.

Getting the airflow in your home cleaned up can be a pretty hefty task. What’s more, doing so is important because cleaner air is easier to cool and circulate, while also presenting less of a problem for your sinuses! You can count on our team to ensure that your home is optimally comfortable.
