Keeping your family healthy is very important. One way to ensure their health is by having excellent indoor air quality (IAQ) in your Spring Hope, North Carolina, home. As summer comes around, so do pollens that trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. Dirt, dust, and pollen become trapped inside of the HVAC system and get blown into the house when the system is turned on. One of the best ways to reduce exposure to pollutants and allergens is with regular HVAC maintenance. Let’s look at a few other ways to keep your home’s IAQ high.
Use a Vacuum With a HEPA Filter
Regular cleaning of your home can greatly increase the IAQ. Be sure to wipe down counters and shelves often, and clean the HVAC system’s vents and registers. Vacuum on a daily basis, and pick a vacuum cleaner that uses a High-Efficiency Particulate (HEPA) filter to trap all of the dirt, dust, pollutants, and allergens.
Invest in a Maintenance Plan
Regular cleaning and maintenance of your HVAC system will help to remove contaminants and allergens before they enter your home. Inspection of the ductwork on a yearly basis helps to ensure there are no cracks or leaks that allow dirty air to leak into the system. Investing in a maintenance plan with us guarantees that your HVAC system will be cleaned and tuned-up in a timely manner. A well-maintained system runs cleaner and more efficiently, so your home’s indoor air is fresh and healthy.
Install an Air Cleaner
To add extra protection from pollutants and allergens, have an air cleaner installed. The filters within the Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner can trap over 90% of airborne particles. The air cleaner is a highly effective way of improving your indoor air quality, and the air you breath will be much healthier.
