Pet dander, dirt, pollen, dust, or similar substances can cause asthma or allergy symptoms, eye irritation, rashes, sore throats, headaches, and other issues. You can improve your Sea Island, Georgia, home’s indoor air quality by changing your air filter regularly, using an air purifier, and adding a ventilator.
Change Your Air Filter Often
If you don’t replace your HVAC system’s air filter regularly, pollutants will accumulate in it. They will eventually lower your heater and air conditioner’s airflow, increasing your utility bills and impacting your comfort. A dirty air filter can also increase wear and shorten your system’s life by forcing it to work harder. For better indoor air quality, replace your air filter once per month.
Use an Air Purifier
An air purifier or air cleaner can capture contaminants with an air filter that’s similar to the one in your HVAC system. It can help you get rid of bad smells and reduce illnesses like the flu by removing many viruses and bacteria. It can also prevent dirty ductwork and keep dust from appearing on your floors and furniture.
An energy recovery ventilator or ERV eliminates stale, polluted air and replaces it with fresh, filtered air. It also works like a heat pump, transferring heat to incoming air in winter and changing directions in summer. That way, you can conserve energy and get rid of bad smells. You can also regulate your house’s humidity and keep contaminants, such as car exhaust, out of your home.
