You may know to avoid days of poor outdoor air quality in Hagerstown, Maryland, but you may still be breathing air inside your home that also isn’t healthy for you or your family. These four pillars of high indoor air quality will help you transform your home into the healthy sanctuary you need.


Without proper ventilation, your air becomes stale, trapping pollutants in your home, only for them to be moved throughout your living space. You also need to properly move hazardous chemicals produced by certain appliances outside of the home. While you can certainly bring in fresh air and move out stale air with open windows, it’s important that you ensure your HVAC system can properly ventilate the carbon monoxide your unit produces.


Your HVAC system is equipped to catch the particles that move throughout your home and your HVAC duct network. These filters trap particles and, if replaced or cleaned once a month, can be a valuable tool in maintaining high indoor air quality. When looking into new filters, pay attention to the MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) of the filter. The higher the MERV rating, the more particles the filter will catch.


Humidity plays an important role in both the comfort and health of your home. Too little humidity and you’re more likely to catch a virus, but too much and you risk moisture damage and biological growth. You can regulate healthy levels of humidity with a whole-home humidifier or dehumidifier, depending on your needs.


It’s one thing to catch hazardous particles, as an HVAC filter does, but it’s another to completely remove that problem from your home. Your HVAC system can also help you neutralize the bacteria and viruses riding on your air. UV-lights, for example, can deactivate the DNA in harmful particles, which in turn removes the particle’s ability to reproduce and make you sick. Some air purifiers can also use electrical charges to neutralize such particles.

Maintain these four pillars of improved indoor air quality and you’ll have a healthier, more comfortable home. For a professional hand improving indoor air quality, call Griffith Energy Services at 888-474-3391.
