Stale indoor air can cause a variety of symptoms including an increase in allergy symptoms, asthma attacks, fatigue and respiratory illness. Many people don’t want to open their windows to freshen the air because of high heat or humidity in the Valley-Metro area, as well as high levels of pollution. A few tips can help freshen the air – without your having to open windows.
Air-purification units circulate the air in your home. They use filters or electronic collection plates to remove bothersome particles from the air and release cleaner air into your home. You can run these units around the clock if need be during times of high pollen levels or smog alert days.
Replacement of your HVAC filters should take place at least every 30 days for best performance. You can replace them more often if you wish to increase the potential of healthy indoor air quality.
This test can determine the levels of humidity in your home. If there is too much moisture in the air, this can lead to stale and unhealthy air that is holding more particles and potentially mold spores. A dehumidifier unit can help rectify the excess moisture.
