4 Habits That Can Ruin Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

Poor indoor air quality can cause everything from dizziness and nausea to cancer and other serious health conditions. Across Burleson, TX, many homes are increasingly well-sealed for energy efficiency purposes. But the drawback is that many indoor air pollutants remain trapped inside. Read on to learn how you’re ruining your home’s indoor air quality.

Using Scented Candles and Air Fresheners

Combustion products like scented candles can release everything from carbon monoxide and formaldehyde to other unhealthy elements into the air. Scented air fresheners are equally harmful through their release of unhealthy organic vapors.

Opening the Windows on Muggy Days

You might feel tempted to open the windows in your home to let fresh air inside, even on hot and humid days. But that high humidity can worsen your home’s air quality by encouraging microbial growth. Instead, use a dehumidifier in the summer to balance your home’s humidity. Also, install an energy recovery ventilator to enjoy fresher air without opening the windows.

Redecorating or Remodeling

Whether you’re in the middle of a major remodeling project or you have a habit of progressively bringing small decorative pieces and furnishings into your home, you may be introducing formaldehyde and other pollutants into your home unintentionally. Even decorative materials such as paint and stains can be harmful.

Failing to Maintain Your HVAC System

Your HVAC system is one of the home’s primary ventilation systems. It’s most effective at this job when the air filter is clean. Change your system’s air filter every month and schedule HVAC maintenance seasonally. By doing so, you’ll help to maintain good indoor air quality.
