Your Edgewater, MD home is the last place you expect to deal with indoor air pollution. Nevertheless, research has shown that most American homes are more polluted than you think. Maybe some of your family members have terrible seasonal allergies or asthma? Luckily, indoor air quality products address these and more alarming situations. Here are three tips for selecting the best air quality solutions for your home.
Keep the Air Fresh with Ventilation
Mechanical ventilation systems lower concentrations of pollutants in your home by bringing fresh outdoor air indoors. Options include Aprilaire’s Energy Recovery Ventilation System. This cost-effective ventilator uses energy captured from your HVAC system’s exhaust air to pre-condition the incoming air. Contaminants get filtered out during the process, so you breathe cleaner, healthier air.
Purify the Air Indoors
Many air cleaners work with your central air conditioning or heating system to keep contaminants from circulating through your home. One of the best is an Air Knight Purification System. Its positive and negative ion technology causes pollutants to stick together and get trapped in a built-in filtration system. Then, a UV light removes up to 98% of biological contaminants, including bacteria, spores, viruses, and more.
Control Humidity Levels
Dry winter air and summer humidity makes it challenging to keep humidity levels balanced. Too much moisture in the air causes biological contaminants like bacteria to multiply. Overly dry air also poses indoor air quality problems, including allowing irritants to remain airborne.
