How to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home
May 04, 2023
Low air quality can be caused by a number of factors such as outdoor pollutants, allergens or unfiltered emissions from heating and appliances in your home. Without proper ventilation, unclean air can sneak in and produce respiratory problems, asthma, or illness especially in children and elderly adults.

Set up UV germicidal lights in your home
UV germicidal lights incorporate ultraviolet technology and offer a non-chemical, low maintenance approach to disinfection in your home. The UV-C lights deactivate the DNA of bacteria, viruses and pathogens so that they can no longer multiply and cause disease. By installing these in your home, you can trust that they’re actively reducing germs and bacteria throughout your living spaces.
Install an air cleaning and purification system
Air cleaning and purification can be done by installing air filtrations, mechanical air cleaners, electronic air cleaners or HEPA filters. Composed of fibrous or porous materials, air filtration systems purify the air by removing solid particulates such as dust, pollen, mold, and bacteria from the air. These systems are also beneficial to allergy sufferers and asthmatics.
Clean your ducts
Without regular duct cleaning, air pollutants can accumulate in your air ducts which can then be distributed throughout your home. In order to avoid potential health issues and air pollution in your home, make sure to have regular professional cleaning of your air ducts.
Invest in a humidifier
Humidifiers add moisture to dry air which can be beneficial to your overall health and your home. When air is too dry, moisture is evaporated from the skin and respiratory problems can worsen. Additionally, furnishings like wood furniture, books and artwork can shrink when the air is too dry in your home.
