28 Aug Improve Your Air Quality and Breathe Easier
On any given day in North Carolina’s Research Triangle, you can find both good and not-so-good Air Quality Index ratings (AQI). On August 15, the rating for Raleigh was good at 30, while on July 16, it reached a whopping 117 AQI, no doubt from the Canadian wildfires. This is according to IQAir, an informative source of current conditions across the US.
How Can You Prepare For Poor Air Quality?
- Improve your home’s ventilation. According to the EPA, the most effective steps you can take are reducing sources of pollution, increasing ventilation by opening windows and doors (especially when working with paint or chemicals), and using an air cleaning system.
- The EPA also recommends watching for mold growth, adding carbon monoxide monitors, and maintaining ventilation. Learn more from The Environmental Protection Agency.
- Ventilation and the quality of indoor air go hand in hand, and many people are unaware of just how important proper ventilation is. Today’s homes are built more tightly, so moisture is often trapped in the attic. When warm, moist air hits a cool surface, the air contracts, and moisture is forced out as condensation.
