Day in and day out, people all over the Augusta area are getting sick. No matter the season, you can always find a friend or family member who has come down with something. However, did you know that a lot of these colds and illnesses can be prevented? That's right, with better air quality, you can prevent sickness. In this week's blog, we cover the basics of how to prevent indoor air quality problems.

Simple Changes: From Filters to Ductwork

In addressing poor air quality, and preventing sickness, you will first need to address your air filters. These useful tools sit just inside your air vents, and they collect debris that is sucked in through your vents. The filters, we suggest, should be changed monthly. Some pros would say seasonal change is okay, but we know that clean filters mean cleaner breather air. So, we stand by our monthly rule. Additionally, we suggest you check your ductwork. Follow along what ductwork is visible, searching for leaks. Not only do leaks cause higher costs on your cooling or heating costs, but also, it allows for dust and debris to enter into your system. At the root of this endeavor, we can safely say that clean breathing air is the way to keep your family healthy. Improving your home's indoor air quality can make significant changes.
