What’s that smell?

Caring for your family means putting a roof over their head, food in their tummies, clothes on their back—and good air in their lungs! However, if your loved ones are constantly suffering from stuffy noses and ear, nose, and throat irritation, then you might need to focus on improving the air quality in your home.

Fortunately, our team at Guin Service is here to help you serve only the *best* air inside your home to both your loved ones and your guests! Find out how you can start improving the air quality inside your home with these tips.

Improve the Air Quality in Your Home

Poor air quality inside your home doesn’t just affect your breathing. It can also cause a number of other health symptoms, including but not limited to:

  • Allergies
  • Coughing
  • Dizziness
  • Eye, nose, and throat irritation
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sinus congestion
  • Sneezing

Fortunately, there are various ways to improve the air quality inside your home, sooner rather than later. Let’s take a look at ways you can begin to reduce contaminants inside your home in order to start breathing in cleaner air while inside your home.

Ensure Proper Ventilation

Not all air is bad air! Especially when it comes to newer homes, homeowners need to ensure they are allowing some outside air into the home so that the air is moving in a circular motion. If you are worried that your home is not as properly ventilated as it should be, an indoor air quality specialist like Guin Service can take a closer look and give tips on how to improve the ventilation inside your home.

Change Your Air Filters Regularly

When was the last time you changed your air filter? If you can see through the air filter, then particles can go through it, which can assist in polluting the air inside your home.

Our team recommends using high-efficient air filters that are able to catch everything so that you do not have to change them but every six months to a year! Added bonus? We will even change the air filter for you when we perform maintenance checks on your air unit!

Keep Your Air Safe!

When was the last time you updated your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors? While home electrical fires caused approximately 51,000 fires each year, more than 20,000 Americans go to the emergency room due to carbon monoxide poisoning a year.

Therefore, it is vital that you check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors frequently to ensure your home’s air remains safe and secure. And, if issues do arise, you are alerted immediately to keep your family safe!
