Your home should be the place where you feel the most relaxed and comfortable. Maintaining your home’s air quality throughout the year in Longview, Texas, can be a challenge. Humidity, dust, carbon monoxide and pollutants in the air ducts are several of the issues you might come across. Read on to learn more about the most common indoor air quality concerns and how to address them.
One of the issues you might face in the spring and the summer is pollution. If you’re an asthma sufferer or have regular hay fever attacks, you should keep the doors and windows closed during the day, especially when it’s windy and dry outside. Installing pollen filters on your HVAC system can solve the indoor problem. It’s also important that you get your air ducts cleaned and filters changed regularly.
If you have old, unvented gas heaters, consider replacing them with a unit that’s greener and more efficient. You can put your health at risk when using these dangerous and outdated heating appliances.
If you live in an industrial area, carbon monoxide might be present in the outdoor air too. Make sure your home’s carbon monoxide detector is in good working order to reduce the risk of harm.
Dust and Dust Mites
Dust can build up during cleaning, when you remodel your home and even if you vacuum regularly. Check your air vents and ducts, and set up a regular maintenance schedule.
Dust mites irritate the lungs and airways of asthma sufferers. You might not even notice they’re present until they impact your health. A mobile or central air purifier can help you stay comfortable, sleep better, and avoid asthma and allergy attacks.
