What Causes Poor Air Quality?

Believe it or not, your home is filled with many sources of indoor air pollution. These include:

  • Dust
  • Pet dander
  • Aerosol cans
  • Mold
  • Carpets

Even everyday activities like cooking and cleaning can release indoor air contaminants, creating pollution you can’t see.

How to Improve Air Quality

Change Your Air Filter

Your filter goes a long way toward both maintaining high indoor air quality standards and keeping you comfortable. It’s designed to work with your furnace and catch the contaminants listed above as they flow through your ducts. However, the more the filter catches, the more clogged it becomes. We recommend replacing it every one to three months to keep your home as clean as possible.

Vacuum Regularly

You can suck up many indoor air contaminants by vacuuming your floors and carpets on a regular basis. Removing vent covers and feeding the vacuum’s hose into your ducts can also help keep them clear of contaminants.

Have Your Ducts Professionally Cleaned

Speaking of cleaning your vents, ComfortAire’s experts specialize in that, too. We’ll clean every inch of your ductwork, removing any pollutants that get caught or build up inside. This can lead to more than just improved air quality—it can also lower your chance of illness.

Balance Your Humidity

Dry indoor air makes it easy for pollutants and even airborne illnesses to circulate. By keeping your home’s moisture levels in the recommended 30 – 50 percent range, you can improve both your air quality and health. Balanced humidity can also help you feel warmer. Ask us about humidification solutions—we have the products you need.

Install Indoor Air Quality Products

Along with heating and cooling solutions, ComfortAire specializes in helping keep your air clean. One way to do that? Installing systems like air purifiers and cleaners in your home. These products are like high-powered air filters, but in addition to simply capturing airborne contaminants, purifiers and cleaners eliminate them.
