How to Maintain Healthy Indoor Air Quality and Avoid Microbial Growth

family-footer

The quality of the air inside your home is critical to your family’s health and comfort. One common challenge that homeowners in Ridgeland, Mississippi, face is microbial growth. In a humid environment such as ours, getting a handle on this problem can be difficult. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can maintain healthy indoor air quality and avoid microbial growth.

Control Indoor Humidity With IAQ Technology

Bacteria and other microbes require sufficient moisture to grow, survive and reproduce. This is one reason our humid local environment places us at a disadvantage. However, today’s indoor air quality technology, such as whole-home-dehumidifiers, can come to our rescue. As a result, it can help you decrease the proliferation of these microbes in your home.

Clean Your AC System’s Evaporator Coil

Have a professional check the evaporator coil in your furnace or air handler for any buildup of biological material on a regular basis and remove it. As a result, it’ll help prevent microbes from growing, becoming airborne and spreading throughout your home via your forced-air system.

For added protection, install a UV lamp inside your HVAC system. It’ll zap these microbes before they spread, offering an extra layer of protection for your family.

Clear the System’s Condensate Line

Make sure your AC system’s condensate drain line remains clear. That way, the air conditioner can safely carry the excess moisture it removes from the indoor air outside where it won’t negatively impact your health. Do this by periodically running a stiff wire through the line.

Schedule Regular Maintenance for Your System

Finally, make sure your HVAC system receives regular professional inspections and tune-ups. That’ll ensure that every part of your system continues working to deliver comfortable temperatures and humidity levels. It’ll also prevent the proliferation of unhealthy microbes and ensure the air you breathe is clean.
