Now that the calendar has flipped to a brand-new year, you’ve almost certainly got a lot of resolutions on your plate that you’re trying to take care of. We know we do! But in addition to the usual, have you thought about how your home’s indoor air quality could use some New Year’s Resolutions for itself?
Take a few of these tips to heart and implement them, and you’ll notice a significant increase in how the air in your home improves. Doing your part to create a better IAQ environment gives you health benefits, and you may even start realizing your energy bill has dropped as well. Here are a few ways to make that dream a reality from the pros at Freedom Air & Heat!
Find the Right Humidity Level
Here in Florida, humidity is an issue. When the weather starts warming up, moisture saturates the air – making it even more imperative to create the right humidity level in your home. If you find that your home usually gets too heavy with moisture, a dehumidifier might be a good investment!
On the flip side, you might realize that you’ve been overcompensating for the outdoor moisture level by creating a bone-dry atmosphere inside. The ideal humidity level in your home should be around 45%, so consider a humidifier if you think your air isn’t at the right level.
Add Something Extra to Your Circulation System
Even though our air circulation is designed to get rid of a lot of pollutants through the use of filters, some contaminants still slip through despite our best efforts. An extremely efficient way to solve this problem is by adding a UV light or air purifier.
Yep, a light! These devices, which are placed in your ducts, zap any harmful molecules that manage to find their way through your air filter as an extra layer of defense. Freedom Air & Heat’s trained experts can help you find one that’s right for you!
Schedule Routine Maintenance
We’ve got a lot of appointments to schedule and commitments to keep track of, so it’s understandable if keeping up with HVAC maintenance isn’t exactly at the top of your list. However, you’re missing out if it isn’t! Even though it might not seem like routine maintenance makes a big difference – after all, your unit’s already running, so why does it need inspecting, right? – you’d be surprised at how much it can help.
By having a professional technician come inspect your unit every few months, you’ll receive a comprehensive cleaning from someone who knows how to optimize your unit. They’ll clear up any issues as well as informing you of anything that looks like it might need attention sooner rather than later.
No matter what your IAQ situation is, there’s always a way to improve it. Whether you’re in the market for total renovation or just need an expert’s advice, Freedom Air & Heat is here to help.
