On any given day in Atlanta, you can find both good and not-so-good Air Quality Index Ratings (AQI). We can all experience some of the drawbacks of living in a hot and moist climate. Take a look at today’s ratings according to IQAir, an informative source of current conditions across the US.
Unfortunately, you can’t affect outdoor air quality, but you can improve indoor air quality.
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 air quality 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. Of course, our damp climate makes all of this worse. Learn more about how your attic and roof ventilation is performing from our experts.
