Are you taking your home’s air quality for granted?
Many people do.
If you don’t deal with day-to-day respiratory problems, you might not pay attention to the overall air quality.
But what if you’re about to bring a new baby into your home? Their immune systems can’t filter out the harmful pollutants in the same manner as you and me.
Or what if you have an elderly person with chronic conditions? They may be more susceptible to harmful bacteria that’s filtered throughout each room every time your HVAC equipment turns on.
Preventing poor home circulation isn’t a one time, fix everything approach. Instead, it’s about due diligence and ensuring everything in your home is working as well as it can.
For some, it may mean installing a whole house humidifier to ensure proper moisture exists in each room of the home.
For others, it might be upgrading air-filtering fans in bathrooms, laundry rooms, basements, and attics. It might also be upgrading fans in the kitchen, to ensure air if filtered and blown out and away from the house, to keep odors, moisture, and bacteria from re-entering the air supply.
It can also be about proper weatherization techniques. Are your doors and windows properly sealed to prevent allergens from entering the interior atmosphere? Are ducts properly sealed to prevent air from leaking where it shouldn’t be?
It can also be about ensuring your equipment is as effective as can be. When was the last time your equipment was upgraded? When was the last time it was maintained?
You can’t expect proper air circulation if you haven’t paid attention to how well everything is working.
