Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) can cause many problems, from asthma flare-ups to exacerbated allergies. If you or your family members are struggling with congestion, headaches, or unexplained fatigue, your indoor air could be the source of the problem. Consider some of the following whole-home IAQ solutions to help your family breathe easier inside your Rogers, Arkansas, home.
Your HVAC system already has a filter built in, but this may not provide you with the level of filtration that you’re really after. Enhance the quality of your air by upgrading to a filtration system that captures a greater number of particles and stops smaller particles. The Trane Perfect Fit reusable air filter captures as much as six times the number of particles that a standard air filter can. This installation filters all of the air passing through the HVAC system in your home.
A ventilation system helps balance some of the effects of a well-sealed home. If you’ve carefully caulked cracks and placed weather stripping around windows and doors, you’ve created a secure envelope that stops heated and cooled air from escaping. Unfortunately, this also traps stale air inside. A whole-home ventilation system purposefully vents dirty air outside and draws fresh, clean air in.
We generally recommend healthy humidity levels between 30 and 50 percent. If your home has low humidity, this can cause dry skin, dry eyes, static electricity, and other discomforts. A whole-house humidifier installed in your HVAC system will help you manage moisture levels evenly throughout the home, so you can banish the issues associated with dry air.
