Options for Indoor Air Quality Services
San Antonio homeowners love spending time outdoors but, on average, people still spend about 90% of their time indoors. That would be fine, if the quality of indoor air was what it should be. In fact, homeowners should be aware of the fact that, according to recent studies, it is believed that the air inside your home may be as much as 2-100 times more polluted than the air outside.
So, to assume that you and your loved ones are exposed to clean air once you close the front door behind you and are locked in your house, is a erroneous misconception. This is especially true now that homes have become so much more energy efficient, which means the same trapped contaminants continue to recirculate through your air, without the ability to escape. There are ways that you can help to change this, though.
Taking Strides Towards Better Air
Some of the more common choices for enhancing residential air quality include:
- Humidifiers – Reintroducing moisture into the air is a great way to improve the overall air quality. Viruses travel with greater ease when conditions are arid. Moisture in the air reduces the likelihood of spreading disease. It also lubricates mucus membranes, makes skin softer and can even help your houseplants perk up.
- Air Cleaners – As the name implies, this system is intended to help clean the air. This type of purification is ideal in households where any members may suffer from asthma, allergies or other respiratory related health issues. However, anyone can benefit.
- Duct Cleaning – From the time that your ductwork is installed into your home, it begins to gather contaminants. Dirt, dust and dander all end up trapped in here, being circulated through your home via the forced air HVAC system.
