We all want to make sure that the air we breathe is healthy for ourselves and our family. There are so many pollutants and chemicals that could potentially harm us. In Phoenix, this can be a big problem because everything settles in the valley. Your air conditioners can only block so much dirt and pollutants from getting into your home. The air inside your home is constantly recycled so that you continue to breathe the same dirty air over and over. This means that the air you breathe inside your homes could potentially worsen your allergies or get your sick. The Environmental Protection Agency says that air quality is one of the top 3 three health concerns in the United States. They believe that the air inside your home can be two to five times dirtier than the air outside because of the dust, gases, mold, bacteria, and viruses that are inside your home.
Thankfully there are ways that you can purify the air quality in your home. The first way is to install an air purifier in your home. An air purifier is what cleans the air as it comes into your home. Air purifiers clean the air by removing bacteria, odors, mold, smoke, and viruses to that they do not harm you. Air conditioning service companies, like ACE Home Services, can install these for you in your home. Installing an air purifier can improve the air quality in your home as well as improve your family’s and your health.
Another way to improve the air quality inside your home is to make sure that your home has good ventilation. Air is recycled constantly throughout your home. Without good ventilation, the air can become old and stale. One way to prevent this from happening is to make sure that your change your air conditioning filters. They should be changed at least once every three months. This will ensure that clean air is getting inside your home. You should also open your homes windows whenever you get the chance. Like changing the filter, opening your windows will allow for new fresh air to get inside your home. The last thing you can do is to clean your air ducts once a year. Dirt and pollens build up in the air ducts and can cause allergies and sickness. Air Conditioning Service companies usually have a duct cleaning service that you should definitely consider.
That last way to improve the air quality in your home is to monitor the amount of gases that get into your home. This is usually only a problem for those older homes that have appliances like a gas stove. Limiting the emissions that build up in your home can only improve your air quality. Limiting the emissions will also decrease the chance of gas poisoning or sickness.
There are many ways to improve the air quality inside your home. Taking the steps above will allow you and your family to lead a healthier life. So contact ACE Home Services today for your air conditioning service needs.
