Proper Ventilation and Air Sealing
While proper ventilation in your Nashville, TN home is a key component in getting better indoor air quality, you can also benefit just as much from adequate air sealing. Homes that are sealed too tightly without proper ventilation can have moisture problems. Even if you install a dehumidifier, you should make sure your home has enough ventilation first.
Installing Dehumidifiers and Air Cleaners
After you’ve made sure that your home is properly ventilated and sealed, you can consider a dehumidifier to reduce moisture levels in the summer. Air cleaners can also help reduce the amount of indoor air pollutants, which can be elevated in air that is too moist.
Another contributor to poor indoor air quality is dirty air ducts. If your ducts are dirty with dust, pet dander, and other allergens, these get redistributed throughout your home when you use your heating and cooling system. A professional duct cleaning service will eliminate this issue.
