Indoor Air Quality
The air conditioning or HVAC unit you have in your home is important to your family life, and not just for the obvious reason of climate control. Another important consideration is indoor air quality. Did you know, for example, that the U.S. EPA estimates that indoor air can be as much as five times more polluted than the outdoor air nearby? And did you know that this makes indoor air pollutants one of the top five environmental health concerns? This affects your family’s well-being and comfort at every level, which is why upgrading and improving your air quality is so essential.
The Problem with Modern Homes
Sadly, many homes are not equipped to keep the indoor air safe and pollutant-free. An airtight envelope surrounding the home provides little or no chance to circulate air in the indoor environment—but Salt Air, Inc. can offer ventilators that bring pre-filtered outdoor air into the home, getting rid of the stale air that has become contaminated and pollutant-rich. Basically, this provides your family with an easy and energy-efficient way to address one of the biggest health concerns that come with modern homes.

Indoor Air Quality Tips
Indoor air quality is important for many reasons. Poor air quality in your home could cause allergies, respiratory problems, and other health related issues for you and your loved ones. Children and elderly individuals are most at risk for health related problems associated with poor indoor air quality. Here are just a few tips for keeping your home healthier for you and your loved ones.
Ventilation is Important
Proper ventilation is essential to improving indoor air quality. Without proper ventilation in your home, dust and particles and other harmful matter are trapped in your home and contribute to problems. To keep your ventilation levels safe you can change your air filters regularly, invest in an air filter that specifically removes allergens, be sure that all devices used for heating also have an intact and working exhaust fan, and open your doors and windows when you can to allow for fresh air to flow through your home.
Keep Your Home Clean
Keeping your home clean can be a task, but the benefits it can produce for your air quality are very important. Washing your sheets, pillows, and comforters on a regular basis can help reduce allergens. Dusting throughout your home eliminates the amount of dust and other particles that can affect the air quality. It is also essential to keep carpets vacuumed and hardwood floors clean to eliminate dust and particles as well. When vacuuming, the use of disposable bags is helpful.
Remove and Prevent Moisture
Another way to improve the indoor air quality in your home is to control the amount of moisture inside your home. This could include identifying and repairing any air leaks around windows and doors, using exhaust fans when showering and doing laundry, and keeping the humidity level in your home to 60% or less. To help with humidity levels, you can use a dehumidifier to reduce the amount of humidity indoors. Moisture within the home can produce mold, which is unsafe and drastically reduces the indoor air quality.
These are only a few ways you can improve your indoor air quality, but they are simple steps in the right direction. A few simple tasks a day can make a major difference in the quality of the air in your home.
