People spend most of their lives inside of their homes, so clean indoor air is extremely important for everyday health. Purifying the air in your home requires a dynamic, multi-faceted approach that is unique to each household. Here at Clay’s Climate Control, we offer air purifier installations. Air purifier systems filter the air in your home removing all airborne particles like pollens, dust and cleaning supplies. This investment will greatly improve your indoor air quality and will keep you from constantly rubbing your eyes.
There are a few different ways that the air in your home can be making you sick. By addressing these three signs, you can ensure a healthy living space where you’ll love spending your time.
- Check your heating and cooling systems – Your HVAC system is probably the biggest culprit of spreading pollutants in your home. When your air conditioning cools your home, it leaves traces of water in the ducts that become the perfect breeding ground for mold and other bacteria. This can be the cause of respiratory issues such as asthma, allergies, and coughing. Although this doesn’t happen to everyone, some members of your family may become symptomatic. In order to avoid this happening, you should have your ducts professionally cleaned at least every couple of years.
- High humidity – A house with high humidity levels can attract mold and let it spread easily. Levels of high humidity can also affect the drywall in your home and create an environment where mold spreads behind the walls. Certain species of mold can cause serious health issues, so you want to be sure to lower the humidity in your home. You can do this by running vents when showering and cooking, or purchase a dehumidifier to extract some of the moisture out of the air. Low humidity can also cause problems such as bacteria, viruses, respiratory infections, allergies and ozone production as well. We offer humidifiers to help with that.
- Tightly sealed homes – The air in our home needs to be ventilated so that the toxins inside our homes are filtered out by fresh outdoor air. The air we exhale and the gas our appliances give off can potentially cause a huge health problem for you and your family. By simply opening a window or a door, you can get some natural ventilation and remove the toxins in the air from your home.
