Why Your Indoor Air Quality Matters
Whether at work or home, we spend most of our time indoors. Additionally, indoor air quality tends to be poorer than outside air quality, even if you live in an urban area. This is why our indoor air quality matters. While there might not be much you can do to improve the air quality at your office or workplace, you do have control over your home’s air quality.
Poor indoor air quality may contribute to:
- More dust and dirt in your home
- Mold and mildew growth
- Bad odors
With millions of people now working from home, people are starting to notice that the air quality in their homes impacts how they feel. From allergies to asthma, your indoor air quality directly affects both your health and comfort.
Keep reading for three tips on improving the air quality in your home.
#1: Open Your Windows
Opening your windows may seem counter-intuitive, but it’s actually a great way to improve your indoor air quality. We often assume that the air outside is worse than the air inside. However, it is often the opposite. You can pull more fresh air in and push the stale air out by opening your windows and running fans throughout your home. Just make sure you have screens on your windows and doors to help keep bugs and debris out.
#2: Always Use Your Exhaust Fans
Most kitchens and bathrooms have exhaust fans installed. This is because both of these rooms feature appliances and fixtures that can pollute your indoor air quality, especially in the kitchen. When you are cooking, make sure you turn your range fan on. When you are showering, turn your bathroom fan on. If your kitchen or bathrooms don’t have exhaust fans, open a window to help vent the air. You may also wish to have exhaust fans installed in these locations.
#3: Consider Installing a HealthWay Deluxe Home Air Purifier
If you have done all you can to improve the air quality in your home and you are still struggling with dust, dander, allergens, or more, it might be time to consider installing an air filtration device like the HealthWay Deluxe home air purifier. These innovative purifiers can be installed in any room of your home, run silently, and feature a 9-layer filtration process.
The HW Deluxe air filtration system helps remove the following from your home:
- Airborne pollutants
- Dust and dust mites
- Pollen particles
- Unpleasant odors
- And more
At Quality Home Services, we like the HealthWay Deluxe purifier because it is powerful and well-suited to home environments. They are easy to use and more effective than HEPA filters.
