What exactly impacts indoor air quality?

Air Quality

You’ve likely heard the term indoor air quality before, and you may even recognize how important it is, but True Temp Heating & Air Inc wants to ensure you realize what could potentially be affecting the quality of air in your home.

When you are spending quite a bit of time in your home you can permit dust, dirt and other contaminants to build up within your home and affect the air in the house. It might be hard to believe, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has found that concentrations of pollutants can be up to 100 times higher indoors versus outdoors.

Here are a few steps you can implement to help control the indoor air quality in your home.

  • Remove the contaminants – One of the best ways to enhance the air quality is to really eliminate the dust and debris. Vacuum and clean weekly to remove the contaminants. You should also wash your bed linens regularly.
  • Properly store household products and cleaning supplies – This helps to keep any fumes contained, particularly for anyone in your family who may be sensitive to odors.
  • Ensure your home is properly ventilated – Newer buildings are well-insulated and sealed to help conserve energy, so it’s critical to have proper ventilation to allow airborne pollutants to depart from the home.
  • Control the amount of moisture in the home – The EPA also advises keeping indoor humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent.
