Clean air is an important concern for any homeowner, but this invisible issue is quite tricky to address. If your family is struggling with symptoms of poor indoor air quality in your Dumfries, Virginia, home, follow these New Year’s resolutions for cleaner air.
Install Indoor Air Cleaners
The right products can make a big difference in your indoor air quality. If you’re struggling with high levels of indoor pollutants in your home, an air purifier or a UV lamp will remove them more efficiently than your standard air filter.
A ventilator may help, too, bringing in fresh and filtered air regularly while venting the stale air. Consult with an HVAC professional to evaluate your home and find the best products for your needs.
Keep Up With Care and Maintenance
Do you remember the last time you changed your HVAC filter? You should do this task at least once every three months. If you’re suffering from symptoms of poor indoor air quality, increase the frequency to once every four to six weeks. Mark your calendar for the coming year to make sure you’re not falling behind.
You should also schedule annual maintenance visits to give your heating and cooling systems the professional care they need. During a regular tune-up, our service technicians will thoroughly clean your unit. That way, it delivers energy-efficient heating and cooling as well as fresh, clean air.
Reconsider Your New Purchases
Stay mindful of the products that come into your home. Scented candles, chemical cleaning products, craft adhesives, and even carpets and furniture can emit hazardous chemicals. Adjust your shopping habits in the new year to keep these out of your home.
