Air QualityHow to Reduce Exposure to Indoor Air Pollutants

August 13, 2019by dave

Fire & Ice Heating and Air understands the importance of having clean air in your home. The buildup of pollutants can adversely affect your health and spread disease. Bacteria, viruses, pollen, smoke, and dust mites can all create an unhealthy situation in your house. There are a variety of steps that you can take to improve the quality of the air that you breathe inside.

Have Clean Air Filters

Dirt and debris can build up on the air filters in your home. This can impede airflow and cause dangerous particles to get circulated around your residence. Replacing your old air filters with clean ones could greatly improve the air quality in your home.

Maintain Proper Humidity Levels

Having moisture in the air can keep airborne particles at bay. In the winter, air tends to be drier, so dust and other debris will not get removed from the air. Having a humidifier in your house can help you to maintain comfortable and safe levels of moisture in the air.

Maximize Air Circulation

Getting fresh air in your home is important, especially in the winter. When it is cold out, windows and doors tend to stay shut. This can lead to the buildup of indoor air pollution. Try to open a window or door whenever it’s warm enough outside to encourage airflow.

Add Plants to Your Home

Having indoor plants can remove harmful gasses from the air and produce fresh oxygen for you to breathe. Bamboo and a variety of other plants can clean your air in an eco-friendly manner.
