Answer: It is true that the air inside your home can be highly polluted and contribute to allergies. It is very important to make sure your whole-home filtration system is working properly and is efficient enough to prevent recirculation of air pollutants.
There is no way to purify every little thing out of your air – it’s perfectly normal to have things like dust in your air. However, there are other airborne contaminants that need to be filtered out. Some of the most common things found in your air are hair, allergens, dust, pet dander, viruses, bacteria and moisture.
There are a few simple things you can do as a homeowner to promote healthier air in your home.
1. Performing AC maintenance by checking and changing your air filters regularly is a huge way to ensure cleaner air. It’s best to remember to clean your filters every few months.
2. Routinely cleaning your rugs and carpets can significantly reduce what gets released into the air and into your lungs.
3. Turning on your kitchen vents when you’re cooking will suck
the moisture from the air and push it directly outside. When too much moisture makes its way into the AC system, it can cause mold and bacteria to grow.
4. Have a professional test for air pollutants. The results can help you decide what purification system works best for your home.
