Home Improvement / December 5, 2018
Your family will probably spend more time indoors to keep warm this winter. This is the reason you should pay more attention to your home’s air quality. To enhance the quality of the air you breathe in at home, Handyman Connection® of Golden shares these three tips:
What is the easiest way to improve indoor air quality? Start by eliminating individual sources of pollution or minimize their emission. For instance, older homes with textured walls may contain asbestos, which should be sealed and enclosed. This heat-resistant fibrous silicate material can scar lung tissues when inhaled. Gas stoves, on the other hand, can be adjusted to minimize emissions.
Apart from source control, upgrading your home’s ventilation can also help enhance indoor air quality. For homeowners, this means increasing the amount of outdoor air coming indoors, most especially in high-moisture areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Start by opening your windows to allow fresh air to enter your interior. This can also help remove the smell produced when cooking.
Another way to ventilate your home is by installing exhaust fans in your bathroom and kitchen. These can help maintain air circulation and eliminate excess moisture, increasing overall indoor comfort.
Many homeowners rely on air cleaners to help maintain good indoor air quality. Air cleaners come in a variety of models, depending on their function. For instance, some air cleaners are highly effective at particle removal. Note, however, that an air cleaner’s efficiency is based on how well it collects pollutants from indoor air and how much air it draws through its filtering component.
