The quality of the air you breathe in your Clarksburg, Maryland, home can impact your overall health and wellbeing. Many people don’t realize they have poor indoor air quality or what can cause the quality of the air to drop. If you’re experiencing unpleasant health symptoms or notice any warning signs of poor quality air, you may want to add a device that cleans the air. Here are three indoor air quality devices to consider:
Indoor Air Quality Monitor
An indoor air quality monitor is a good option when you want to know when the quality of the air is dropping. Many monitors are smart devices. As a result, they allow you to access the data via your device. They can track the humidity level, presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the air and indoor temperature. These metrics are then aggregated to produce an overall indoor air quality score.
Carbon Monoxide Detector
Most people have carbon monoxide detectors in their home; although, they have only been required under building codes since 2016. Exposure to this odorless and colorless gas can lead to memory loss, confusion and even death. Therefore, it’s crucial to make sure the indoor pollutant isn’t impacting your family’s health. You may be able to get an indoor air quality monitor that also tests for carbon monoxide. But it’s also smart to make sure you have a dedicated carbon monoxide detector.
An air purifier can make a big difference in the overall quality of the air you breathe. Some people opt for tabletop purifiers, which clean the air in a specific room. If you want a more comprehensive solution, consider adding a whole-home air purifier to your HVAC system. This will use a heavy filtration system to remove particles before the air recirculates in your home.
