- Proper Ventilation
Good ventilation allows the proper entry of clean outdoor air and exit of polluted indoor air. Exhaust fans are important in the kitchen and bathroom to remove excess moisture, unpleasant odors, and pollutants that can be distributed to the different parts of your home. In spring and summer, a recovery ventilation system is a good choice as it helps cool the warm air while diluting concentrations of contaminants in your home.
- Adding an Air Cleaner
Air cleaners or purifiers are powerful devices in filtering dust, dirt, smoke, mold spores, pollens and other pollutants in the air. Their great filtering ability makes them a helpful home component for people with a weak immune system, allergies, and asthma. When buying an air purifier, be sure to choose those with higher MERV rating for best results.
- Air Duct Cleaning
Air ducts play an important role in keeping a healthy indoor air quality in your home. Since ductworks require professional expertise, you may need to schedule a service this spring which includes professional cleaning and repair of worn out parts. Dirty and leaky ducts can pull in and deliver dirty and contaminated air in your home, causing great frustrations and health risks.
- HVAC Maintenance
A professional HVAC service is crucial in attaining a healthy indoor air quality in your home. It includes filter replacement and general cleaning of the unit to ensure that it is performing at its best throughout the season while giving you a clean air to breathe. Fortunately, if you have a programmable thermostat, you will be notified if it’s time for a filter change or maintenance service.
These tips will prepare you to combat this year’s spring allergy season. There are tasks that you can do yourself but if you need help in some difficult situations, you can always count on our team at Environmental Heating and Cooling. Set an appointment today!
