How Can Indoor Air Quality Be Improved For Asthma?
How often are you thinking about the air quality in your home? If you’re like most homeowners, you likely don’t think about it too often. It’s one of those things that can easily be forgotten about. As they say, “out of sight, out of mind.” However, for people with asthma, indoor air quality is essential for their ability to breathe comfortably and live happily in their homes. If you or someone you know struggles with asthma, it’s important to be informed about indoor air quality. The HVAC installation, repair, and maintenance specialists at Air Control Heating and Air, serving Johns Creek and all of Metro Atlanta, have provided expert insight on improving your indoor air quality.
Keep Your Home Allergen-Free
Allergens are some of the most common elements that may provoke one’s asthma. Indoor allergens can come from dust, pet dander, bedding, and excess moisture. If you want to keep your home allergen-free, it is best to make sure the house is clean and tidy. For example, dust tends to gather in cluttered areas, so it makes sense to tighten up your belongings to minimize dust build-up. Vacuuming often and regularly washing your bedding in hot water are also essential for minimizing indoor allergens.
Additional Pro Tips:
- Keep pets off all bedding and furniture or get a washable pet throw.
- Get an allergen-resistant mattress cover.
- Replace or deep clean any wall-to-wall carpet.
- Keep moisture levels low in the bathroom and kitchen to avoid mold.
Have a Pro Change Your Air Filters Regularly
Air filters work hard to keep your home allergen-free. However, they should be changed out regularly by an HVAC professional to efficiently trap and reduce the airborne particles in your home. Air Control Heating and Air can take care of routinely changing out your air filter as a part of our maintenance plans to keep your HVAC system in great condition year-round. Changing out the filter will minimize the symptoms someone with asthma may experience. Although air filters are not capable of removing allergens entirely, they can filter the air that is circulated through the home.
Consider Installing an Air Purification System
Air purification systems are devices used by many homeowners to reduce indoor allergens and improve air quality.
