Did you know the air inside your home in Hobe Sound, Florida, is more polluted than the air outside? From household cleaning products to high humidity levels, there are plenty of things that can worsen your home’s indoor air quality. Here are three IAQ devices that can help you breathe cleaner air at home and live a healthier life:
When you change it regularly, your HVAC system’s filter does a good job of preventing particle pollutants from re-circulating in your home. But it doesn’t stop all of them. To trap and kill the tiniest of particles, you need a stronger line of defense. While standard air cleaners stop dust and dirt from spreading in your home, they also inhibit airflow.
The Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner resolves this problem by having a minimal pressure drop. This IAQ device can remove up to 99.98 percent of the pollutants as small as 1/1,000th the diameter of a human hair.
Energy Recovery Ventilator
Homeowners in Hobe Sound rely on their air conditioner for much of the year. Florida’s climate limits the opportunities you get to open a window to let fresh air in without leaking conditioned air out. Exhausting stale air matters, though.
The Trane FreshEffects Energy Recovery Ventilator is your answer to poor indoor air quality. This IAQ devices exhausts stale indoor air while replenishing it with fresh outdoor air. It also reduces the amount of chemical vapors, odors and gases that today’s tightly sealed homes trap. As a result, it improves your home’s indoor air quality.
The summer in Florida can make it feel as if you’re living in a sauna. While your air conditioner works hard to keep you cool indoors, balancing your home’s humidity level is as important as maintaining an efficient AC system. To avoid excess moisture and microbial growth, invest in a dehumidifier. Maintain a humidity level between 40 and 60 percent.
