In the middle of summer, it is pretty easy to think that staying cool is the only thing you need to focus on for your home. However, you also need to take steps to ensure that your indoor air quality stays high. Low indoor air quality can dramatically impact both your health and comfort levels all year-round. This is especially problematic during the summer, when people will often cut off the fresh air flowing into their homes by shutting doors and windows. Fortunately, there is a way to improve your indoor air quality without sacrificing climate control.
Most people have low indoor air quality because they have high amounts of microscopic airborne contaminants in their air supply. The average home has all kinds of airborne contaminants floating around in it, including dust, dander, mold spores, germs, and pollen. Long term exposure to these kinds of contaminants can cause a wide range of negative effects, from the flu to asthma. The best way to address these contaminants is to install an air filter or air purifier.
