For most people, it’s great to be warm and snug at home, safe from the freezing temperatures of winter. But for those who suffer from respiratory issues, winter can also mean flare-ups.
At Albert Air Inc., we understand how indoor air quality can sometimes be worse than outdoor air quality. Below is a list of some of the most common allergens and other indoor air pollutants present in many homes, and some ideas of what you can do to improve your indoor air quality.
Common Indoor Air Pollutants
- Dust mites
- Mold spores
- Pet dander
- Tobacco smoke and smoke residue
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
How to Ensure Good Indoor Air Quality
While you’re searching for ductless air conditioner reviews, you might also want to search for ways to ensure the quality of your indoor air. One of the most popular ways to do this is by using an air purifier. To help you choose the most effective air purifier, look for the following:
- A true HEPA filter. Ultrafine particles like dust, pet dander, mold spores and pollen are difficult for most ordinary filters to trap. A true HEPA filter (not a HEPA-like filter) can remove up to 99.97% of such particles.
- An air purifier that’s the right size for the room in which you’ll be using it.
- The verified mark of the Association of Home Appliance Manufacturers (AHAM).
- A clean-air delivery rating (CADR) of 300 or higher.
Note, however, that even the best air purifiers can’t remove 100% of indoor air pollutants, and they can’t catch gases like radon or VOCs. Instead of relying completely on an air purifier, make it a point to air out your home for at least 30 minutes a day as the weather permits.
