Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality isn’t something most home owners spend a lot of time thinking about, but it’s extremely important to your family’s health. Unfortunately, because it’s something you can’t see, increasing the quality of the air inside your Cary, North Carolina isn’t easy if you don’t know what you’re doing.

Happy Home Heating & Cooling is here to help! Here are a few indoor air quality tips that will ensure your entire family can breathe easy all season long.

Know the Right Way to Clean

Cleaning regularly is a great way to increase the air quality inside your home, especially in the fall. Dusting and vacuuming are great ways to banish dust and debris from your home. However, how you clean matters.

You should always clean your home from top to bottom. That way, any dust you stir up when cleaning the tops of the bookcases can be vacuumed out of the carpet when you’re almost done cleaning.

How you dust matters too! It’s much better to use a damp rag to wipe surfaces, because it traps all the particles instead of making them airborne, like traditional dusters do.

Use a Humidifier

It isn’t just the cleanliness of the air you have to think about when it comes to indoor air quality. In the fall, the air starts to dry out. Combined with the fact that your heater will start kicking on more frequently, and it’s easy to see how your air quality could be negatively affected.

An easy solution is to use a humidifier. It can send moisture into the air and prevent a wide variety of dry air problems that include:

  • Dry eyes
  • Irritated sinuses
  • Nosebleeds
  • Dry skin
  • Static cling

Clean Your Air Ducts

No matter how much you do yourself to positively affect the air quality in your home this fall, you can only do so much. That's because dirt and debris can settle in your HVAC system, then it all ends up getting blown throughout your home every time the system kicks on.
