Improving the health and happiness of friends, family and loved ones is always a priority. When it comes maintaining a happy, comfortable home, boosting indoor air quality can be the best place to start. There are many ways to improve the air quality of your home, but here are five tips to get you started.
Over time, a great deal of dust and debris can build up in a home’s air ducts, which can negatively impact the quality of air being distributed throughout the home. Call a local HVAC contractor and ask about having your ducts inspected and cleaned, if necessary, for improved indoor air quality.
Seal Air Leaks
Sealing air leaks in doors and window sashes with weatherstripping, caulking holes and gaps in your home’s exterior, and installing door draft stoppers will improve IAQ. Air leaks can allow moisture to enter the home while also letting conditioned air escape. Likewise, allergens, dust mites and other pollutants can find their way into the home.
