The air inside your Surf City, North Carolina, home contains a wide range of pollutants. Each of these can contribute to a variety of health problems, from cold symptoms to chronic lung diseases. Investing in an indoor air quality device can help you reduce airborne contaminants in your living space. As a result, it can keep your family healthy and happy. Below are three HVAC devices that can improve your indoor air quality.
An air cleaner is an indoor air quality device that works with your HVAC system to capture dust, pollen, mites, pet dander, bacteria and other contaminants that circulate in your home. Most air cleaners are capable of trapping organisms that are as small as one-third micron, meaning they can get rid of invisible pathogens such as common cold viruses. Some of them can kill pathogens upon contact, resulting in healthier IAQ.
Keeping your home well-ventilated is one of the most effective ways to improve your indoor air quality. If you’re having difficulty introducing outdoor air into your home, consider investing in a ventilator. A ventilator operates in cycles to replace stale, contaminated air in your living space with clean, fresh air from outside. This makes your home less stuffy and reduces the concentrations of air pollutants in your home.
During winter, your HVAC system may struggle to maintain comfortable humidity levels in your home. Dry air not only causes damage to your wooden furniture and increases your energy costs. It can also lead to respiratory problems. A humidifier uses either vapor or steam to increase moisture levels in your home. If you want properly humidified air in every part of your home, consider installing a whole-home humidifier.
An indoor air quality device is a worthwhile investment because it can help maintain a healthy environment in your home and reduce your medical spending.
