While most homeowners in Hughes Springs, Texas, want to keep their indoor air quality as high as possible, excellent IAQ is an even bigger priority for freelancers. From installing an air purifier to changing your cleaning routine, here’s how to improve your IAQ when you work from home.
Install a Whole-Home Air Purifier
Keeping your HVAC system’s air filters fresh is an important step toward good indoor air quality. But if you have pets, mold or other issues with indoor pollutants, you need a high-powered solution.
The Evolution Perfect Air Purifier, a whole-home air cleaner, is designed to capture up to 95 percent of airborne contaminants in your home. It can also neutralize up to 99 percent of airborne germs and viruses.
Change Your Cleaning Routine
An even easier way to clear the air is to rethink your cleaning routine. Harsh cleaners can linger in the air, leading to respiratory issues. Try cleaning with natural substances like white vinegar, citrus and baking soda.
Invest In an Energy-Recovery Ventilator
If the air in your home office tends to be stuffy, the Wood Air Conditioning & Plumbing team recommends investing in an energy-recovery ventilator. A model like the Preferred Energy-Recovery Ventilator continually flushes stale air out while bringing in fresh, clean air. The device even recycles some of the thermal energy it captures, making it remarkably energy efficient.
Monitor Moisture Levels
Texas is known for its high humidity, so you’ll want to keep airborne moisture levels in check indoors. After all, excess moisture can lead to mold, dust mites and other IAQ issues.
Talk with our team about programming the humidity settings on your thermostat or investing in a whole-home humidifier to keep moisture levels manageable.
