If you have concerns about the quality of the air circulating around your house, you aren’t alone! Homes all over the country experience trouble with their indoor air quality because there’s little chance for fresh air to flow through them.

How Do I Get Started with Improving My Home’s Air Quality?

Monday, July 11th, 2016

You may have heard some disturbing rumors about the low quality of the indoor air in homes. Unfortunately, many of the rumors are true, with studies showing that the air inside a house is often much worse than that outside. The reason for this is that the insulation and heat sealing on homes—which helps them stay energy efficient during hot and cold conditions—traps indoor particles, allowing their concentration to build up. Numerous products, appliances and furnishings in your house give off airborne pollutants, such as formaldehyde, smoke, and chemicals. You often can’t do much about the sources of this air pollution, but you can take steps to remove the pollution itself. Below we’ll show you how to get started on this. (more…)

How Can I Tell I Need an Air Filtration System?

Friday, December 12th, 2014

Are you doing enough to keep your family from breathing in harmful contaminants every day? The air conditioning and heating system in your house contains a filter which strains out many of the particles floating through the air. Unfortunately, this filter can only take out a select number of particles of a certain size, while smaller particles continue to circulate in the house. These may include viruses, bacteria, and mold spores, all of which can be dangerous to anyone breathing in the air.

Many homeowners combat this by purchasing a whole-home air filtration system. These are far more effective at filtering out particles than small standalone units and many can remove up to 99% of airborne contaminants. A new UV air purifier, electronic air cleaner, or dehumidifier can all help to make conditions more livable, but how do you know if you need one?

One of the most common reasons to choose an air filter is if the people in your home just keep getting sick. An air filtration system protects the air in your house by eliminating mold spores and other particles that tend to make people ill or to aggravate existing health conditions. If the people in your home seem to get sick a bit too often, don’t assume it’s normal. You should speak with a doctor, and perhaps have an indoor air quality expert examine your home to help you determine which types of contaminants you’d like to eliminate and what type of system would be best to do so.

You should also consider an air filtration system if you move into a new home, especially if someone in your household has a compromised immune system or a history of asthma. A final way to tell you need a whole-home system is if your home feels musty. Mold and mildew can form when a home is too moist, and a dehumidifier, while not an air filtration system in earnest, is a great way to prevent these from infiltrating your air.
