The quality of the air in your Dalton, GA, home, is directly related to your quality of life. In most homes, the air is two to five times more polluted than the outdoor air, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Consider using these three devices that help you breathe cleaner air in your home.
Firstly, air purifiers use electrostatic, ozone or UV-C technology to inactivate germs and allergens and remove odors from your home’s air. For a small space, such as a bedroom, you could choose a portable air purifier. For optimal results, consider a whole-house air purification system. It works with your heating and cooling to sanitize the air before it’s blown through the ducts and into your living spaces. If you’re worried about illnesses, choose an air purifier with UV-C sanitizing technology.
Energy Recovery Ventilators
Whole-home mechanical ventilators remove the stale, polluted indoor air and replace it with fresh, filtered outdoor air. The system maintains the temperature of the new air, reducing the workload on your heating and cooling system. An energy recovery ventilator also removes odors, carbon dioxide and other gases and chemical vapors from cooking and cleaning products.
Dalton’s summers are hot and humid, and excessive indoor humidity promotes mold and mildew growth. When microbial grows, it releases spores into the air. If you’re allergic to microbial, inhaling it can cause breathing difficulty and other symptoms. A whole-house dehumidifier lowers indoor humidity levels. Lower indoor humidity reduces allergens in your home and increases AC efficiency. As a result, it makes you feel more comfortable.
Each of these three devices improves your home’s air, making it easier for you to breathe. These solutions could also extend the lifespan of your heating and cooling system. You can pair these indoor air quality solutions with high-efficiency air filters and exhaust fans for fresher and cleaner air.
