Most people don’t realize the quality of the air they breathe can affect how they feel, including an increase in allergies or even asthma. Although you might hear about the pollution outside, the air inside your home may contain even more pollution. If you are wondering about the air quality of your Greensboro, North Carolina home, we can debunk some of the myths surrounding air treatment.
Air Fresheners Make the Air Fresh
Advertisements want you to believe that spraying an air freshener in your home will clean your air and eliminate odors, but this is not true. Most air fresheners mask smells, and the chemicals can add to the pollution in your indoor air. A better solution to clear out stale air is to open windows to allow fresh air to come in, or you can invest in a ventilator.
Whole House Air Filters Always Clean the Air
Installing an air filter in your HVAC unit is an excellent way to clean the air that circulates throughout your home. Although, if you don’t clean and maintain the unit, dirty air is trapped inside. You can call us to schedule an evaluation on the air quality of your home and we can show you how to change air filters and put you on a maintenance plan.
Humidifiers and Misters are Good for the Air
Although you might have been told that adding moisture to the air in your home will keep it fresh, this is not always true.
