Improving the Quality of Air Inside Your Home
During the cooler months of the year, it’s common for us to keep our house more closed up. We don’t leave windows open, we don’t leave doors open, and we are generally less likely to let the outside air into our homes. All of this is great for keeping the temperature our home more comfortable, however, it’s not great for the quality of the air in our homes.
Think about it – if you keep the door to a small room closed up it becomes musty after a while. The same applies to your entire house, especially if you don’t let fresh air into your home regularly.
In fact there, have been many studies done that show just how much worse indoor air quality can be over outdoor quality.
Many people also think that running your heater or air conditioner will keep the air circulated and clean. After all, isn’t that why we have an air filter?
While air filters do keep some of the large particulates out of the air, most air filters do little to really clean or improve the quality of your air. So, when you are running your HVAC system, you are doing little more than circulating the existing air in your home.
However, while most HVAC systems won’t improve the quality of your air, there are some that do. Additionally, there are premium air filter systems you can install that will significantly improve the air quality in your home. Some of these systems use the same technology that is used in hospitals to reduce the spread of disease.
