Your indoor air might be dirtier than the air outdoors, exposing the inhabitants of your home to allergens and carcinogens. The following are ways an HVAC unit can help to improve the indoor air quality in your Roxboro, NC, home:
You should consider supplying your home with clean air after eliminating the different sources of pollutants. One way is by opening the window to allow air exchange when the outdoor temperature is pleasant. However, this method doesn’t block asthma triggers or allergens from entering your house.
The best method of supplying your home with clean air is by ensuring that doors and windows remain shut and by installing mechanical ventilators that bring fresh air in and expel polluted air. Filtered mechanical ventilators are compatible with an exhaust fan.
You can control and manage humidity levels in your home by using a dehumidifier. The ideal humidity level during summer should be between 40% and 60%. Balanced humidity levels can also help to keep away air pollutants and boost the immune system.
You can remove dust particles from the air by adding an effective air purifier to your HVAC system. Filtering the air through the central HVAC system ensures that the clean air circulates to every room in the house.
Properly designed HVAC systems can help circulate the air through the filter within a short period. This gives you peace of mind since you know that airborne pollutants are not allowed to stay in your home for long.
However, air filtration systems are not designed equally. Ensure that the filtration system has a high removal rate. The MERV rate should be higher than 11.
