I cannot express enough how important it is to keep your air clean and safe from harmful bacteria and allergens.
- A lot of times, people will sneeze and cough, and they think it’s allergies, when really, you could just have really bad indoor air quality.
This is where you can use climate control to your advantage. Your heating and cooling machine should have fantastic air filters. Without fantastic HVAC filters, it will not only be more likely to perform poorly, but it can shorten the lifespan and decrease the quality of your air. I recommend HEPA air filters, they are the best in my opinion. Next is making sure your ductwork is clean. The ductwork is pretty easy to forget since you can’t see it. But there is a lot of dirt, dust and hair up there that gathers and then circulates when your A/C unit kicks on. You can see how contaminated air would be unhealthy to breathe in. To get ductwork cleaning, all you have to do is get a heating and cooling worker to come out and perform the ductwork cleaning for you. Usually it will be a team of HVAC workers performing the ductwork cleaning. Last, getting a whole home air purifier is a great idea as well. A whole home media air cleaner is a great solution to air quality issues. These wonderful air purifiers will remove any allergens or pollutants in the air, and keep it nice and fresh for you. I highly recommend doing all of the above steps, clean air equals better health!
