The air we breathe is pressing to our health.
Whether we are awake or asleep, our lungs are constantly taking in the air around us.
While our bodies do have a natural defense mechanism against air pollutants, it’s best to reduce the amount we are exposed to. In your home, your Heating & Air Conditioning plan is responsible for removing these air pollutants. The air filter in your Heating & Air Conditioning plan is your first line of defense for removing usual allergens or pollutants like pollen, pet dander, mold, & mildew. These filters should be changed often, about every 30-60 afternoons especially if you are a pet owner. Some filters are rated higher than others, & the rating you require will depend on your & your family’s needs. Dehumidifiers are a great addition to your apartment for reducing air pollutants, then removing the moisture from the air means that it can be filtered more efficiently, & helps to prevent the development of mold & mildew. Dehumidifiers can exist as standalone units, or installed in-line with your existing Heating & Air Conditioning systemâ€¦ UV media whole-house air purifiers use ultraviolet light to destroy the airborne pathogens & bacteria that your filter doesn’t capture, and like dehumidifiers, UV air filters can be portable units, or installed into your existing system, but your local Heating & Air Conditioning provider will be able to help you find the best solution for air purification in your home, without having to overhaul your entire system, as several of these replaces can be done non-invasively, with minimal interruption to your life, while greatly improving the quality of the air you & your family breathe.
