If your Abbeville, Louisiana, home often smells unpleasant, you could have poor indoor air quality. Dust, dirt, pet dander, pollen and other pollutants can cause severe allergy symptoms. Fortunately, air purifiers, energy recovery ventilators, and dehumidifiers can help improve your indoor air quality. As a result, they can make your home feel more comfortable.
Use an Effective Air Purifier
Some air purifiers use filters like the ones found in heaters and air conditioners to catch contaminants. But many models use advanced filters that can capture even smaller particles like viruses and bacteria. As a result, they can help lower your risk of getting sick. You can have a whole-home air purifier installed in your ductwork, or you can use a portable version to target one room or area at a time.
Install an Energy Recovery Ventilator
An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) can remove stale air from your home and filter incoming air while helping you save energy. Like heat pumps, they have heat exchangers that transfer heat to incoming air in winter and reverse the process in summer. That way, you’ll remove any contaminants or unpleasant odors from your home and enjoy fresh air without raising your utility bills.
Invest in a Quality Dehumidifier
Finally, a dehumidifier will get rid of excess moisture in your air. As a result, it’ll prevent your home from feeling stuffy. It can help you save energy by making a higher air conditioner temperature setting feel more comfortable. It can also prevent pests, biological growth and bad smells in your ductwork and home. Whole-home or portable models are available.
