Reducing indoor air quality troubles can be quite easy with these 10 tips:

  1. Book an indoor air quality audit with James Heating & A/C, Inc. Our experts will inspect areas that impact air quality, including humidity, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Then we’ll walk you through setbacks we locate and how you can fix them.
  2. Clean frequently to collect dust mites, which can worsen allergies and asthma.
  3. Keep your home free of secondhand smoke.
  4. Consider a whole-home filtration system to remove scents, versus hiding them with air fresheners or scented candles. These pollutants include compounds that can lead to or enhance respiratory disorders.
  5. Vent appliances that use gas, such as ranges and water heaters, to the outdoors.
  6. Keep your residence’s humidity levels appropriate with a humidifier or dehumidifier, subject to what meets your home comfort needs. Set humidity under 50% to prevent mold and mildew development.
  7. Inspect your house for radon. Ongoing exposure to this non-colored, hazardous gas is the number one contribution of lung cancer among people who don’t smoke, the EPA states. You can purchase a radon test kit online or reach out to your state radon program for information on discounted or free kits.
  8. Use a ventilation system to replace polluted indoor air with healthier outside air.
  9. Select natural cleaning and painting material that are limited in or free of VOCs. Increased levels of VOCs can inflame issues for family members with respiratory diseases.
  10. Install carbon monoxide sensors close to bedrooms.
