Removing Airborne Particulate Matter form Your Home
How clean is the air in your Brevard, NC, home? Well, it might surprise you to learn you have more airborne particulate matter in your home than you thought. Here are some effective ways to remove the matter and breathe cleaner air.
Use an Air Purification System
You might think your HVAC system’s air filter does a good enough job of keeping your home’s indoor air healthy, but they can’t eliminate microscopic particulate matter as more sophisticated systems can. Air purifiers are high-performance machines that filter air much better than the flimsy cardboard filters used by most traditional HVAC systems. Modern air purification systems are easy to use and do an excellent job neutralizing airborne particles like dust, pet dander, and more.
Install a Whole-house Ventilation System
Stale air is unhealthy, and many homes in the area don’t have proper ventilation to expel particulate matter from the air and replace it with fresh air. Many newer homes have this problem because the construction industry has done a better job building energy-efficient homes with better sealing. While these construction practices result in fewer energy losses, they make proper air exchange difficult. Installing a whole-home ventilator can correct this problem. The ventilator not only removes particulate matter for cleaner air, but it circulates the air better. You get fresher air, reduce indoor air pollution, and improve your home’s indoor air quality.
Why Clean Air Matters
According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), people spend 90% of their time indoors, and that air is 2-5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Those are shocking findings and very good reasons to do what you can to keep your home’s air as healthy as possible. When airborne particulate matter is high, allergy symptoms worsen, respiratory issues increase, and some people complain of skin irritation.
Fortunately, you don’t have to breathe dirty air. Contact Horizon Heating & Air Conditioning, LLC, to learn more about whole-home ventilator installation and other HVAC indoor air quality solutions.
