Breathe Cleaner Air Today!
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is defined as the quality of air within a residential dwelling or other building, and how this relates to the health, general well-being, and comfort of the people who are breathing the air.
When most people think of air contamination or pollution, they think of it as being an outdoor problem, centered primarily in big industrialized cities where smog and congestion can be seen as a haze or fog floating around in the air. Often people visualize images of smokestacks and chimneys in the distance, or exhaust pipes dissipating fumes amid a maze of traffic. In all of this, most people rarely imagine that the air inside their homes is actually more polluted than outdoor air.
However, it’s a fact that our everyday activities alter our indoor air quality. Cooking, showering, smoking, owning a pet; all can have an effect on the air we breathe if we don’t make efforts to improve our air quality.

5 Types of Humidifiers
Evaporators push moisture through a moistened filter and its fan pushes the humidity out into the room where it’s being used.
These humidifiers are often the most pricey option, but the most effective. Central humidifiers are installed directly into your home’s heating and air conditioning systems. From there, they can regulate the level of humidity throughout the entire home.
Steam humidifiers work by electrically boiling water to create humidity in the form of steam. The steam is then picked up and pushed throughout the ventilation system. Steam humidifiers are the fastest and most efficient way to increase and maintain a good level of humidity in your home. Steam whole-house humidifiers also provide the purest and most natural form of humidity that you can have within your home. Steam humidifiers are able to run moisture regardless of the condition of your heating/cooling system.
Bypass humidifiers add moisture to warm air via a furnace. These types of humidifiers take warm air from the home’s heating ducts and pass it through a water tray. This allows the air to collect moisture which is then delivered back into the house. You can have a bypass humidifier installed on the supply or return plenum of your central air system. Bypass humidifiers typically need to drain their water supply, however. So if you don’t have a floor drain, you can always have a drainless bypass humidifier installed. These reuse their water supply, meaning that they use less water.
The only real difference between a fan-powered humidifier and a bypass humidifier is that the former uses a fan to push air through the water tray for increased water evaporation. Fan-powered humidifiers are able to produce up to a gallon more of humidity per day compared to bypass humidifiers. They’re also more energy-efficient, as the internal fan uses the same amount of electricity as a 25-watt light bulb. Because this is a powered flow-through system, it doesn’t require a bypass duct which allows it to be installed in smaller spaces.

6 Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality
With a little preventative maintenance and some basic understanding, you can take immediate steps to improve your indoor air quality today.
Clean Rugs & Carpets Often
Designate a "No-Smoking Zone"
Check your air ducts.
Air ducts are responsible for distributing hot and cold air throughout your home, providing a comfortable climate in every room. But ducts that are not installed properly or maintained can distribute contaminants from one room to another. Over time, dust, dander, and even mold can accumulate in your ducts, reducing the overall air quality. Hire a professional to make sure your ducts are circulating fresh, clean air.
Create a Safe Space
Anything that is flammable or combustible should be kept at least 3 feet away from all heating equipment and heat sources, including furnaces, fireplaces, and portable space heaters. This space should also be a “kid-free zone.”
Use a Programmable Thermostat
Using a programmable thermostat to turn the temperature lower while you sleep or work can decrease your energy consumption up to 25% without having to remember. Learn more about programmable thermostats today.
