Symptoms of Poor Air Quality in Your Home
Did you know the quality of the air inside your home or office can actually be worse than the air outside? For some, this low air quality can be life threatening and should be taken care of immediately.
Poor air quality inside your home or office is likely to cause some common symptoms.
Some of these include:
- Irritation of the eyes and nose
- Difficulty breathing
- Decreased ability to fight respiratory infection
For those who have pre-existing heart or lung conditions, the effects of poor air can be more severe.
How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality
If you’re looking to improve the air you breathe each day, there are several options. At Stellar Services of North Florida, LLC., we take a look at your current indoor air pollution to first determine which is the right choice for you.
Air purifiers work by filtering your air with filters that trap airborne particles. Depending on the grade of the filter, smaller particles can still get through. High Energy Particulate Air (HEPA) filters guarantee to trap 99.7% of all particles 3 microns or larger (anything smaller than 10 microns is not visible by the naked eye).
Humidifiers add moisture to the air. They are the perfect solution if you find that the air in your home is too dry. Too much static electricity in your home is a sure sign of dry air. It is recommended that your home’s humidity level be somewhere between 30 to 50%. If the moisture exceeds those levels, it can actually be harmful.
Chances are, if you live in Florida, your home probably has too much humidity. Dehumidifiers can be a great tool in keeping the humidity in your home at optimal levels. Too much humidity can be uncomfortable, and it may be driving your energy bill up because it forces your air conditioning to work harder.
Duct cleaning is an invaluable service in keeping dust and allergen levels down in your home. Your AC ducts can trap particles, which are then distributed throughout your home.
If you are interested in your indoor air quality with clean ducts, Stellar Services of North Florida, LLC. offers thorough duct cleaning.
Whole House Cleaners
Whole house units attach to your central air unit and filter the air that circulates throughout your home.
There are several whole house cleaning options:
- Flat filters: A filter installed in your central AC that scrubs the air clean
- Extended media filters: A more substantial filter with multiple levels of filtration
- Electronic filters: Air passes through an electronic field that “zaps” particles floating in the air
- UV filters: These use UV light to destroy particles in the air
