Most people spend the majority of their time indoors. That’s why it is incredibly important to improve and safeguard your home’s indoor air quality. Doing so will make your home more comfortable and reduce the risk of health complications from indoor air pollutants. Fortunately, the Environmental Protection Agency knows several ways you can improve your indoor air quality. Handyman Connection of Jeffersonville discusses them here:
Practice Good Source Control – Typically, the most effective way to improve your indoor air quality is to eliminate the sources of indoor pollution or to reduce the emissions from these individual sources. For instance, you can decrease the amount of emissions from your gas stove, or you can use building components and materials that are certified not to release harmful compounds or emissions.
Improve Your Home’s Ventilation – You can also lower the concentration of indoor air pollutants in your home by increasing the amount of outdoor air coming indoors. For example, you can receive new replacement windows from us and then open these windows up to bring fresh air inside your home. You can also install bathroom or kitchen fans to increase the outdoor air ventilation rate.
Utilize Air Cleaners – There are several types and sizes of air cleaners on the market, so you can easily find a product that meets your needs. You need to consider a few factors before choosing an air cleaner. Evaluate how well it collects pollutants from indoor air and how much air it draws through the cleaning or filtering element. The best air cleaners are highly efficient in both attributes.
