When it comes to keeping our homes clean and comfortable, things like vacuuming, dusting and washing dirty dishes easily come to mind. Ensuring proper indoor air quality(IAQ) is often further down on the list even though it’s as equally important as the everyday household chores we do.
Considering the average individual spends almost 90% of his or her time indoors and typically takes in about 15,000 quarts of air per day, we are naturally prone to inhaling air that isn’t necessarily so good for us. However, it’s important to ensure that you’re breathing quality, clean air in your home because:
While your home’s IAQ may not naturally be up to par, do not fear – there are ways to help it improve and no major modifications need to be made. The solutions are typically quite simple and often times only involve putting more thought into the household products that you purchase for your home.
Here’s how you can easily improve your home’s air quality with little stress:
You can also add a whole-house humidifier. These help keep a home’s IAQ healthy by regulating moisture levels and decreasing mold and mildew growth.
The benefits of a whole-house humidifier do not end with improving the health of your home’s air. Healthy air will keep you healthier as well as you’ll be less susceptible to illnesses such as the common cold, respiratory issues and the flu. The proper amount of moisture that a whole-house humidifier provides ensures that the air isn’t too dry, which helps your throat, nose, asthma, allergies, furniture, floors and artwork.
In addition to the health benefits, you’ll also see cost savings with a whole-house humidifier since your home will feel warmer and you will, in turn, be using less heat.
