The air you breathe inside your home impacts your health and your comfort. You keep a healthy, clean home and change out your air filters but our air inside and out is always being polluted with chemical emissions, allergens, fine particles, bacteria, and more. Everyone is susceptible to becoming sick from airborne toxins but certain people we love – babies, the elderly, those with pre-existing conditions – are especially at-risk.
HVAC system filters do a fine job of filtering out some harmful particles, dust, and allergens but there is much more you can do to protect yourself and your family from breathing unclean air.
In addition to DIY-ing air quality improvements by keeping houseplants, cleaning your home with regularity, and knowing the outdoor air quality in your area, you can employ the following cutting-edge technologies to breathe easy:
The Best Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Products
These free-standing or in-system components suck in your interior air, purify and protect from toxins and pollutants, and push clean, healthy air back out into your home.
UV Air Cleaners
Bryant UV air cleaners use UV lamp technology and work within the coil of your system, mercilessly stamping out mold and bacteria before they integrate into the air of your home.
Humidity Control Accessories
The humidity index in your home not only affects your level of comfort but is important to your health and the integrity of the home. Excess humidity OR excess dryness can exacerbate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory conditions, can cause damage to the fixtures of your home, and a humid home can create an ideal environment for mold to grow. Humidifiers and dehumidifiers are essential to whole home comfort and wellness.
If the air outside in your area is clean and safe, a ventilator is a great way to filter that clean air into your home.
Pleated Air Filters
Pleated filters are proven to be better at filtering fine particles than fiberglass alternatives, and are more affordable and appropriate than HEPA filters for your home. Consider a pleated filter to help combat pollutants that try escaping from your ducts.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
Part of indoor air quality is indoor air safety. Required in new homes and strongly recommended in older homes, CO detectors will protect you and your family from the silent killer. Carbon monoxide cannot be seen, smelled, or otherwise detected until it is already in your home, poisoning your loved ones.
A smart thermostat can allow you to monitor your IAQ to make adjustments AND will remind you to change your filters. Brilliant!
