Tips for Improving Indoor Air Quality in Asheville, NC

Monday, April 8th, 2013

Many people think that pollution is only a problem outdoors. This could not be less true. In fact, there is a pretty good chance that the concentration of pollutants within your home is actually higher than it is outside. Luckily, there are many ways in which you can improve the quality of the air that your breathe in your Asheville, NC home. Call Comfort Central today to schedule the indoor air quality services you need to boost air quality in the place you live.

One major way that indoor air quality is reduced is due to ductwork that is in poor condition. If you use a forced air distribution system when heating and cooling your home, it is necessary to keep your air ducts in the best condition possible. Not only does this allow you to heat and cool your home more efficiently, saving money in the process; it also allows you to keep from circulating airborne pollutants throughout your entire home. If your air ducts are loose fitting or damaged it is possible for pollutants to be pulled into them then distributed throughout every room of your house. Professional duct sealing services can prevent this from occurring.

Improper humidity levels are another way in which air quality in your home can be compromised. Too much humidity can lead to uncomfortable, stuffy air, peeling paint or wallpaper and even the promotions of mildew and mold growth. If your air is to dry you may notice dry, itchy skin, splitting wooden fixtures and an increase in annoying electric shocks. Rather than use a portable humidifier or dehumidifier to address this issue, consider the installation of a whole house humidifier or dehumidifier in your home. This is a great, effective way to restore proper humidity levels throughout your house to improve indoor air quality.

Another way that you can keep unwanted pollutants out of your home is by improving insulation and air sealing your home. Contact us today for more information about these services. Boost energy efficiency while also keeping dirt, dander and allergens out of your home.
