5 Sources Of Major Pollutants
Pollutants That May Be In Your Home
Coal- It seems unbelievable that coal or charcoal could be a pollutant in the air in your Nampa home, but this is a possibility.
Those that grill near their home and leave their door or windows open may get the ashes that come from the charcoal in the home, and it’s possible that the coal ashes will circulate around the home while it’s in the air.
Smoke- Whether it’s cigarette smoke or smoke that comes from burning things in the home, smoke can linger in the air and make the air less breathable.
If something burns in the house, such as oil or grease when cooking, this smell can stay in the air for a long time, making the air less pleasant when you breathe it in.
Aerosols- Many use aerosol sprays for different reasons, mostly for freshening the home. Although you may feel that these products freshen the smell in your home, they can also lead to pollutants in the air, especially certain aerosols that may linger around in the air for hours.
Chemical Agents- There are many chemical agents that can be in your air, especially if you use chemicals to clean your home. Not every chemical is made equal, so some chemicals will be more damaging to the air in your home than others.
Pollen- Although pollen is something naturally in the air, especially when springtime rolls around, it can be considered a pollutant, especially since many people are allergic to it.
How Pollutants Get In The Air
It’s very easy to get pollutants in the air in your Nampa home, all you have to do is open the door or windows or even keep them closed, it doesn’t matter.
Opening the door can let pollutants in and closing the door can allow the pollutants to stay in. The only thing to get rid of pollutants that are damaging your indoor air quality is by ventilating the home with a good HVAC unit.
How Your HVAC Unit Can Help Your Air Quality
Once you get your HVAC unit running, the home becomes ventilated, and the air recycles itself, and clean air is put back into the home. The HVAC unit’s filter can also catch many pollutants, keeping the air clean. Make sure your HVAC unit runs properly by having a maintenance and repair person come out yearly to examine your unit.
It is beneficial for property owners to request a free or low-cost energy audit from their utility company. This often involves using high-tech equipment as well as the careful physical examination the property by a trained inspector.
A property owner will usually be provided with a written report listing any areas of concerns and advice about what next steps need to be taken. The findings of such a report need to be discussed with an HVAC professional.
