indoor air quality improvement tipsDid you know that the air in your Carrollton, Georgia area home may be full of biological pollutants, fuels, and more?  Think about it. From fuels such as natural gas and oil to biological pollutants such as mold and pollen, these substances are common just about all year long. So what can you do increase your home’s indoor air quality? Follow these three easy steps from the experts at Addison Smith Heating, Cooling and Plumbing.

Supplement Your Air Conditioner’s Filter

 

Nearly all heating and cooling systems contain a simple filter that works to clean your home’s air. This filter removes about 5-8% of all particles. For homeowners with allergies or pets, a pleated filter is recommended. This filter can eliminate up to 85% of smaller particles of pollen or mold. To remove up to 99.9% of particles and increase the indoor air quality of your home, consider using an electronic air cleaner.

Controlling the Dust in Your Home can Increase Air Quality

 

A key step to increasing the quality of air in your home is minimizing the amount of dust. Dusting your home on a regular basis is the first component to this. A second component to eliminating the amount of dust is something as simple as vacuuming more often. Consider using a vacuum with a HEPA-type filter that can remove even more dust and dander as you clean.

Indoor Air Quality Improves with Regular Duct Cleaning

 

Your home’s air ducts gradually build up a collection of fungi, bacteria, and other small dust particles that are created inside your home’s heating and cooling system. Regular duct cleaning in your Carrollton area home reduces these particles and improves your overall indoor air quality. Addison Smith recommends cleaning your air ducts every 3-5 years.
