Keeping the air supply inside your home clean is more important now than ever before. Luckily maintaining good indoor air quality isn’t hard. Read on to learn how to sanitize the air in your Frederick, Maryland, home and prevent illness.
Change the Filter in Your HVAC System
If you want to minimize the cost of cooling your home and prevent breakdowns, you must schedule AC maintenance. But there’s one maintenance task that you can easily do yourself: changing the filter every month. By doing so, you’ll help your air conditioner run more efficiently. You’ll also reduce the number of particle pollutants recirculating in your home.
Invest in a Whole-House Air Cleaner
While changing the filter every month is helpful in maintaining good indoor air quality, you must do more to sanitize it thoroughly. The Envirowise CleanEffects Air Cleaner uses revolutionary technology to remove up to 99.98 percent of harmful contaminants in your home’s air supply, including bacteria. This indoor air quality device is up to 100 times more effective than a standard filter, operates quietly and filters particles as small as 0.3 microns.
Install an Energy Recovery Ventilator
You’re spending more time inside your home, which means less time outside in the fresh air. But enjoying fresh air inside your home is easy when you install the Trane FreshEffects Energy Recovery Ventilator. This indoor air quality device exhausts stale indoor air and replaces it with preconditioned air from outside. It also works to reduce the level of chemical vapors, odors and naturally occurring gases that get trapped in tightly sealed houses.
To sanitize the air in your home and prevent illness, you must eliminate the particle pollutants from the air supply and keep it fresh. Balancing the humidity also helps to accomplish this.
