How Clean is Your Indoor Air at Home?

By Jennifer Ercoli - Publisher Macaroni Kid Lafayette March 21, 2019

With indoor air quality becoming a growing concern, most homeowners are still not aware of the level of pollution inside of their home.

The Environmental Protection Agency has ranked poor indoor air pollution among the top 5 risks for public health multiple years in a row. Without even knowing, your air duct system could be contaminated with particulates that are harmful for you and your family to breathe. Each time your heating and cooling system turns on, it can circulate dust, dust mites, animal dander, pollen and bacteria throughout the air inside your home.

More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. According to Total Health and Better Health magazine, 1 out of 4 people who suffer from allergies, do so, due to the fungi and bacteria in the air duct system.

Everyone relies heavily on their heating and cooling system to keep them warm and cool. Even with regular use a heating and cooling system can trap a lot of unhealthy pollutants inside it. A lot of these are dangerous to your health! Here are some ways you can help improve your indoor air.

Improve Ventilation

Make sure your duct system is properly sealed! Leaky duct work pulls air from all over, potentially bringing in more contaminants.

Make sure your air filter is clean

A dirty air filter not only makes your system work harder it also can’t block out the contaminants from getting into your system

Cut back on the air contaminants

Avoid harsh chemical air fresheners and cleaning products!
