Indoor Air Quality

You can only control so much of your surrounding environment, but luckily, you can improve your indoor air quality (IAQ).

Most of us spend the vast majority of our day indoors. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the concentration of pollutants inside can be five times greater than outdoor levels in many instances. That means the air quality inside our homes can be more harmful than the air outdoors.

Fortunately, our team at DHA Mechanical can help improve your air quality and comfort.

What Causes Indoor Air Pollution?

Allergens, mold, volatile organic compounds (VOCs)—these pollutants and others add up to compromise your air quality. Building materials, household cleaning products, smoking, pets—they all play a part in affecting the quality of the air you breathe.

High temperature and humidity levels can also increase concentrations of some pollutants.

Unfortunately, the people most exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods are often those most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. Such groups include the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease.

DIY Tips: The 3 Best Methods to Reduce Indoor Air Pollution

  1. Source Control—This method is the most effective. Simply eliminate the source or adjust it accordingly.
  2. Ventilation—Open windows when the weather permits, and turn on your bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans while showering or cooking.
  3. Air Cleaning—You can choose from many air cleaners, depending on your needs.

What other steps can I take to improve my indoor air quality?

Change your furnace filters! Regularly replacing your furnace HVAC filters every 1 to 3 months has so many benefits, but it’s especially important during your spring and fall cleaning. These filters work hard to catch all the dust, dirt, allergens, pet dander, hair, and other particles and pollutants to keep them from circulating throughout your home or business.
