Unless we notice a strange smell or are stuffed up with a head cold, most of us don’t think too much about the air we breathe. However, the air in your Indiana home isn’t something to be ignored. In fact, poor indoor air quality could affect your health both now and in the future. At Westside Plumbing Inc., we suggest that our customers take three steps to improving their home’s indoor air quality.
1. Do your research.
The US Environmental Protection Agency notes that “Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce your risk of indoor health concerns.” Before making any changes to your home, we suggest that you get a full understanding of air quality and the things that influence it. The EPA’s website is a great resource for doing just that.
2. Get an indoor air quality test.
Many local inspection companies offer testing to assess a home’s indoor air quality. If you want to know the facts, we recommend that you take advantage of these services. That way, you can know what you’re dealing with and can then contact an HVAC professional to remedy the situation.
3. Change your air filters.
One thing you can do regularly on your own is to change out the HVAC filters. Additionally, our technician can install a filter on your heating system that helps filter out contaminants before they even have a chance to circulate in your home.
