With the dawn of a new year upon us, we’re sharing a few tips to help you maintain a healthy lifestyle throughout 2021 and beyond.
Did you know that indoor air can be up to five times as polluted as outdoor air? Outside, air naturally circulates, while indoors, it is contained and has nowhere to go. Your indoor air quality is good when the air is clean, purified, and well-ventilated. If it is not filtered with outside air, carbon dioxide and pollutants can build up and harm your health, especially during allergy seasons. If you want to improve the air quality of your home, read our blog to learn how regularly cleaning, maintaining healthy humidity levels, and installing an air purifier can reduce your allergy symptoms during peak allergy seasons in Redmond, WA, and the greater Puget Sound area.
Your home air filter is perhaps one of the most important parts of your HVAC system. So many of the issues that could cause your system to slow down or stop working entirely can be attributed, at least partially, to an old or clogged up air filter, so regularly changing your filter is an important part of home maintenance. However, once you change your air filter, your old furnace air filter may release dirt and debris back into the air in your home, which could lessen your indoor air quality.
This brings up a question that many people want to know the answer to: how should you properly dispose of an old air filter? Air filters have the benefit of being disposable in your regular trash, but what can you do to prevent all of the airborne debris trapped in the filter from escaping again as soon as you move it? Here are a few disposal tips you can follow.
Wildfires are devastating for the environment in so many ways. In addition to burning natural vegetation, wildfires also release a ton of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, further exacerbating greenhouse gas issues for our environment. Likewise, they also greatly reduce our air quality, making the simple act of breathing difficult for just about anyone, and particularly unsafe for those who suffer from respiratory issues. What that means is it’s important to take refuge inside, where air quality can be under control. But how can you keep your indoor air quality at a high level when the air quality outside is so poor?
This blog has the answer for you. Check out these four tips for keeping your indoor air quality healthier during wildfire season so that you can breathe easier in your home while the air outside is full harmful impurities.
Homes provide safe havens. They are a place to relax and promote freedom of expression. However, what if we told you they are riddled with invasive airborne pollutants that are nearly invisible to the naked eye? This by no means suggests you are in immediate danger, but it does undoubtedly impact the way you and your family live. In fact, the air inside homes and businesses is more polluted than outside of them! This is often due to poor ventilation. Luckily, there is a simple path to clean indoor air—it all starts with purifying the air! Read on to discover the health benefits of air purifiers.
