A number of things can affect air quality in your home. Controlling the air quality involves first eliminating sources of potential harm and then if possible filtering and mitigating anything that might linger. 

Improving Your Indoor Air Quality by Kettering Heating and AirAir Quality Factors

Things that diminish air quality in your home can come from many sources.

Poor indoor air quality is due to the accumulation of pollutants such as paints, flooring adhesives, dust and dander and even carbon monoxide if your HVAC system is improperly installed.

Mitigating the Causes

Probably one of the best investments you can make to reduce the dust and dander is a good vacuum cleaner. Many low-cost vacuums just re-introduce dust into the air. 

Other sources include a choice of flooring material. Flooring materials such as vinyl can introduce toxic chemicals into the home and the effect can linger for months if not years.

Mold growth is another important consideration. Mold can cause serious health issues including respiratory problems, increase in allergic symptoms and other health problems.

Fixing excessive moisture problems, leaks in roofs and ceilings, pipes etc and then providing enough ventilation will go a long way to resolving most mold and mildew issues.

However, if correcting one of those issues does not resolve your problem, try replacing your air filter or air cleaner with one of better quality can greatly improve the quality of the air inside your home.  

These devices all remove particles from the air in different ways.  

Mechanical air filters trap particles using a filter material as air passes through it. Electronic air cleaners use electrostatic attraction to clean the air.  Air is pulled through a section of the cleaner where pollutants are ionized, giving them an electrical charge.  

Air collection plates within the device attract the charged particles. You can also opt for an ionizer, which works similarly but does not use a collector.

Air Quality Systems and Service

Maintaining the HVAC system in your home can dramatically improve your home air quality. People spend most of their time in their home.

The chances of reducing health issues associated with air quality improve tremendously if the HVAC system is properly maintained.

The air duct of the HVAC system can get contaminated by mold, dust and other biological contaminants so it’s not just a matter of replacing the filters which you should be doing anyway (at least twice a year).

The quality of your indoor air can be further improved with the use of HEPA air filtering systems and humidity control systems.
