Protect Your Indoor Air Quality During National Lung Month
- IAQ, Lung Month, Safety, Tips
National Lung Month is all about raising awareness about the importance of lung health and ways to help Canadians breathe easier. An often overlooked aspect of lung health is the importance of your indoor air quality. Fahrhall Home Comfort Specialists knows first hand how polluted the air inside your home can be and want to highlight ways to protect the air you breathe every day in your home.
Mould Growth — Many times mould is hidden in your home and the only signs of its presence are the negative health effects like wheezing and difficulty breathing. Protect your indoor air quality by knowing the signs of mould growth and ways to prevent it from developing.
HVAC Filters — Your furnace filter helps trap dust, allergens and other contaminants that can pollute your indoor air. There are a number of different filter options to meet your needs and is compatible with your HVAC system. Remember, even the best filter will not work as expected if it’s not replaced regularly. Best practice is to check your filter monthly and replace as needed.
Protect your indoor air quality with the following home comfort systems:
Air Purifier — Whole home air purifiers help capture contaminants like pet dander and pollen — common components of dust. In addition, home purification systems are able to trap up to 99% of harmful particles and bacteria that circulate throughout your home — allowing everyone to breathe easier.
Humidifiers — Whole home humidifiers help ensure your home is at its optimal moisture level. This helps alleviate symptoms of dry air like bloody noses, sinus infections and irritated throats. Dry air can also harbour and spread viruses, decreasing your indoor air quality.
