VIDEO: How To Improve Indoor Air Quality
Logan Services was recently featured on WBNS-10TV in Columbus to discuss indoor air quality. Scott, one of our Comfort Consultants, is featured talking about how to improve the air quality in your home and the benefits of clean, healthy air.
Because indoor air quality can actually be 20x more polluted than outdoor air, it begs the question of how to improve our indoor air. Logan A/C & Heat Services can help you make the indoor air cleaner and healthier for your family and your guests. Take advantage of ways to improve your indoor air quality through your heating and cooling system, some of which include humidity control, proper air filtration and duct cleanings.
Humidity needs to be controlled by season. In the winter, a humidifier will help make your home more comfortable. A whole-home humidifier can add moisture to your indoor air, help stop static electricity, alleviate dry eyes and prevent hair from becoming dry. In the summer, your air conditioner helps to dehumidify the indoor air in the home, which helps keep you comfortable during the hot summer days.
Proper Air Filtration
Another improvement for cleaner air is air filtration. Your furnace filter is a very important part of your heating and cooling system. A properly cleaned/replaced furnace filter helps alleviate allergies and eliminate dust mites, which is the number one leading cause of allergies in children. Filters should be changed every month to enhance the clean, healthy air for your home. You could also look at installing additional air cleaning products to your HVAC system, such as an electronic air cleaner, UV-light or Trane CleanEffects.
Whole-Home HVAC Duct Cleaning
When was the last time you had a duct cleaning in your home (if ever)? A duct cleaning will go a long way to providing cleaner air. When you have a professional duct cleaning in your home, you are able to get dust and dirt that has settled in the ducts removed. Once cleaned, you can rest assured that those pollutants that have collected in your ductwork over time aren't blowing back up through the vents in your home.
These air cleaning methods not only help to improve the air quality in your home, but also help to enhance the comfort level of your home. Watch our video above to learn more about how to improve indoor air quality and the benefits of cleaner and healthier air.
