How to Improve Air Quality Indoors

Indoor air tends to be more polluted than outdoor air. That’s because indoor air is typically more humid and with little ventilation.

As a result, indoor air can become filled with volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde and benzene, as well as other pollutants such as carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide. Thankfully, you can take steps to improve the quality of indoor air in your home or office.

After all, reducing your exposure to VOCs and other pollutants will help you breathe easier all year long. So keep reading to learn how to improve your indoor air quality.

Get an Air Purifier With a Built-in Sensor

Air purifiers are an excellent tool for improving indoor air quality. However, most air purifiers don’t have a way to measure indoor air quality. So they are not very helpful in pinpointing the source of air pollution.

A solution to this problem is to get an air purifier with a built-in sensor. These sensors can indicate when the indoor air quality is low and when the air purifier needs to be replaced or re-calibrated.

Open a Window

Opening a window is one of the easiest ways to improve the air quality in your home. It allows fresh air to flow indoors, which reduces the humidity and brings in fresh air from outside.

You may want to consider opening a window when entering a room that has been closed for some time. This will help reduce the number of indoor pollutants collected since the room was last used.

Turn on the Ventilator

If the air in your home is significantly polluted, you may want to consider using a whole-house ventilation system. These systems bring fresh air from the outside and distribute it throughout your home. Although they can be pretty expensive, they can help reduce your exposure to indoor pollutants in the long run.

Install an Electronic Air Filter

Whole-house electronic air filters use carbon filters to trap pollutants. These filters are energy efficient and easy to maintain, making them a good choice for people who are sensitive to contaminants or have allergies.

Air purifiers also come with a variety of filtration systems. These can range from simple HEPA filters to advanced systems that use ultraviolet light to kill bacteria and viruses.

Electronic Air Cleaners With Ionizer and HEPA Filter

Electronic air cleaners with ionizers and HEPA filters benefit those who want to improve their indoor air quality. The ionizer helps remove odors and particles like dust, smoke, and mold spores.

The ionizer works by emitting negatively charged ions that attach themselves to positively charged particles in the air. Once these particles are charged, they become easier to trap and collect.
