Top Ways To Improve Indoor Air Quality

January 30, 2015

If you are looking for ways to improve air quality, then you came to the right place. This article provides information on how to clean your air based on the latest scientific studies.

Three of the most basic ways to clean indoor air are; use of air cleaners, improving ventilation in your home or office and source control.

Air Cleaners

There are two types of air cleaners. There are the pocket-friendly table-top air cleaners, and the whole-house systems that require a little bit more money to buy. The inexpensive air cleaners are designed to remove most of the pollutants in your air, but won’t work very well when it comes to getting rid of gaseous pollutants. The whole-house air cleaners are more sophisticated and work better than the table-top models when improving air quality in your house.

Ventilation Improvement

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to clean indoor air is to simply allow fresh air from outside to enter your house. This lowers concentration of pollutants in your house without the need to use any electronic devices. Operating doors and windows when the weather outside allows you to, will improve quality of air within a short period of time. If you are running an air conditioner with the windows and doors open, cleaning the air will be even faster.

Source Control

Controlling the source of pollution will also clean your air easily. For instance, if you are using a gas stove, adjusting them to reduce emission will go a long way towards freshening indoor air. Sealing up sources containing asbestos is another effective way to reduce emissions.

If you or a member of your family suffers from allergies, then cleaning indoor air is very important. What you need to do is determine the severity of the problem and decide which method best suits your needs. Before making a decision on which method to invest in, do some research and find out how effective the strategy will be at cleaning your air.
