If you want to improve the air quality in your home, then you should start with your HVAC services in Longmont, CO.
It’s important for you to keep your indoor air quality services in check. We have a few different ways that you can do this. These are some steps you can take to clean the air in your home. Keep reading below…
Identifying Your Indoor Air Pollutants
Let’s start from the beginning—what’s plaguing your home?
It’s not common that most homeowners are dealing with something serious like asbestos in the attic. Instead, you’re probably dealing with common germs, bacteria, or particles stemming from things like pet dander. There are different systems in place that you can adopt in your home to balance things out or remove these problems from your home entirely.
Consider These IAQ Options
We offer the following systems on our team.
The humidity balance in a home is just as important as the cleanliness of the air in your home. If your home is too muggy or too dry, you’re definitely going to notice your comfort lacking. An excess amount of moisture will make you too hot in summer and a lack of moisture will make you too cold in winter.
Air Filters and Air Purifiers
Air filters and air purifiers can eliminate contaminants, dust, and other particles floating around that are plaguing your home. If you’re having trouble choosing between the two units, we’ll help you figure out the best option for your needs.
HRV systems are the system that you’re looking for if you’re looking to bring fresh air into your home without sacrificing your home’s internal temperature. HRV systems also help you recover around 70% to 80% of your energy in the existing air.
Try These Tips
Okay, so now outside of these indoor air quality systems, you might want to consider some extra tips. These are a few you might try:
- Change Your Air Filter: Change the filters in your air conditioner or heater on a regular basis. We suggest every three months. This keeps your HVAC system clean.
- Use Cooking Vents: Make sure that you turn on the kitchen vents or open a window when you’re cooking. This will help clear your kitchen of smoke and other contaminants.
- Keep Your Carpets Clean: You’d be surprised how much is lying in your carpet. Don’t let any of your home’s carpets or area rugs become contaminated with all the debris and germs in your home. Deep clean these surfaces on a regular basis.
- Get Your Green Thumb On: Buying yourself an indoor plant can help improve the IAQ of your home. Small plans that bloom indoors can act as a minor, natural air filter.
Adding these tips to the mix can really make a difference to your home. Try these in conjunction with a great indoor air quality system and tell us how it works.
