Keeping your family healthy in your Birmingham, Alabama, home, should include monitoring your indoor air quality. If the quality is poor, your family could be at risk for allergy and asthma attacks, as well as other respiratory conditions. Follow these three strategies to help keep your indoor air quality healthy year-round.
Invest in a Whole-House Air Purification Solution
If bacteria and viruses enter your home through the dirty ductwork of your HVAC system, they can trigger health issues. Using advanced technology, a specialized high-intensity UV lamp, or an ionized oxidizer can be installed in your existing HVAC system. Depending on the system installed, the microorganisms will either be killed or deactivated before they enter and pass through the ductwork. Call us at Skeleton Heating and Cooling to discuss installing this purification system in your home.
Keep Your HVAC System Clean
Dirt and dust can become trapped inside your HVAC system’s ductwork and air filters. Clean or change your filters on a regular basis and schedule an appointment to have your ductwork inspected and cleaned. Consider having your ductwork sealed to prevent dirty air from leaking into your home. A well-maintained and clean system helps keep your indoor air healthy.
Install a Connected Thermostat
Having air flowing throughout your home should be ongoing regardless of whether you are home or not. With a connected thermostat, you can easily change the heating or cooling temperature set point and fan setting.
