Should I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a concern for some Midway, GA, homeowners. This is especially true for homeowners who want to create a safe environment for their children and families. Here are several good reasons you should improve your IAQ:

Create a Healthy Environment in Your Home

Some people are very sensitive to pollutants in the air. Usually, children are more sensitive than adults. Improving your IAQ helps protect the health of your family.

When the IAQ in your home is good, your family is less likely to struggle with issues like asthma and allergies. This is because clean air has little to no allergens, such as dust, pet dander and dust.

Make the Home Comfortable for Your Family

Bad IAQ can cause discomfort. For example, bad smells that linger in the home make being there unpleasant. Air that’s musty or stuffy causes discomfort, as well.

Living in a home that has clean air is much more comfortable and inviting. When the home feels fresh, it becomes a place where your family can relax and enjoy being there.

Improve the Quality of Your Sleep

When your home has good IAQ, the quality of your sleep is better. Respiratory problems and airborne allergens can make breathing difficult, whether awake or asleep. If you have a condition such as sleep apnea or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), low IAQ can make the situation worse.

Prolong the Life of Your HVAC System

Clean air means less dirt and dust accumulating in your HVAC system. One way to achieve this is with regular HVAC maintenance and a clean air filter.
