Indoor Air Quality Solutions – Decatur and Metro Atlanta

Summer is here, this means that dealing with sinus and allergy problems from indoor air is possibly a big problem for you, your loved ones, and associates. What can you do to improve your indoor air quality in Decatur and metro Atlanta area?

Indoor Air Quality Solution 1 – Dehumidifier

empire hvac dehumidifierFirst and foremost, humidity matters. A whole-home dehumidifier system is the best option to solve your problems in the summer. You see, if your indoor air is too dry, that fosters pollen and other allergens, bacteria, air viruses, and general discomfort. On the other hand, if the air is too humid, this causes much physical discomfort, as well as the potential growth of molds and mildew. Those spores truly hurt human health, both in the short run and long run. The goal is to keep the humidity below 60% in the summer and above 35% in the winter. Adding a whole home dehumidifier in the summer will act in unison with your HVAC system to keep the proper balance.

Indoor Air Quality Solution 2 – Duct Sanitation

Another tip for quality indoor air is to have your ducts sanitized. Whatever is inside your ductwork will naturally come out into your home or office, right? That’s common sense. The buildup inside these ducts and tubes can be considerable if they have not been cleaned or vacuumed in a while. Empire Heating and Air Conditioning can easily handle this duct sanitization task for you. This, in itself, helps to prevent allergens and dirty air from entering the building.

Indoor Air Quality Solution 3 – Keep Windows Closed

Lastly, indoor air quality and the reduction of sinus troubles and allergies in Decatur and Atlanta area can also be enhanced by keeping all windows closed, thereby keeping out dust and allergens. With a good HVAC system, the windows do not need to be open in warmer weather anyway!
