How to Improve The Quality Of Air In Your Home This Summer
When the summer season reaches its highest point, most of us stay indoors in our air-conditioned bedrooms. Summers also bring a lot of seasonal allergies with them, which might leave you with a running nose, headaches, fatigue, throat congestion, or pollen-triggered allergies. It’s therefore necessary that you eat healthy, stay hydrated, and have good quality air inside your home.
Here are some ways you can do so to ensure a fun summer!
Always use a dehumidifier
High humidity can affect the human body in a myriad of ways. When the air is more humid than it should be, it prevents sweat from evaporating. When sweat doesn’t evaporate, the body can’t remain cool. To cool off, the body has to work harder; all of this can cause a higher heart rate and perspiration—in short, increased health risks!
A dehumidifier reduces humidity levels inside your house and consequently also reduces humidity-related allergens such as dust mites and mold.
Keep the floor clean
It’s a common misconception that the ’better’ a cleaning solution, the cleaner a home will be. But by using lemon and or orange scented cleaning agents, you’re only spreading more chemicals inside the house.
Household cleaning solutions aren’t as safe as we perceive them to be. According to the American Lung Association, cleaning solutions that contain ammonia and bleach can cause chronic breathing problems if used in excess.
Summers when children are free from school and spend a great deal of their time indoors. Make sure you’ve read through the ingredients of your cleaning solution. Better yet, use organic, non-toxic solutions.
Invest in a good HVAC company
Other than low utility bills, a major advantage of HVAC units is that they supply clean air throughout your room. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, HVAC systems play a vital role in home air quality. They also use energy recovery ventilators and ultraviolet air cleaners. These keep dust and dirt away from your home.
Other than that, get your HVAC Company to visit your home twice a year to keep a check on how it’s working.
