The term “getting some fresh air” always refers to going outside, and there’s a reason for that. The air outside is referred to as fresh because, despite some instances of allergies or pollutions, for the most part it is clean and can be breathed easily. The air is refreshing outdoors. What about inside? Unfortunately, that’s often not the case.

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), levels for air pollutants may be up to five times higher indoors than outdoors. There’s a reason (or many reasons) why indoor air quality is sometimes a tricky thing to get right in the home energy and comfort world. There are so many causes of poor indoor air quality, from dirty carpets, to pets, to clutter… the list goes on. An equally long list is made up of reasons why many homes aren’t sufficiently equipped or designed to take care of these issues and help improve the air quality inside our homes.

Regardless of the cause, poor indoor air quality can be extremely bothersome, make us uncomfortable when inside the home, and can even lead to health issues for home residents. Dust, pollen and other allergens can be annoyances and health hazards if we’re constantly breathing them in during the days and nights spent inside.

Fortunately, there are a number of remedies that can lead to improved air quality within the home. One such remedy is whole-house air filtration, which is a great solution for not only improving, but also maintaining high indoor air quality within our homes.

Sometimes you need that extra bit of help to make sure your indoor air is as clean and fresh as possible. At BelRed, we offer multiple solutions to help with the indoor air quality in your home. 

One option is installing a powered air cleaner, which are whole house filtration systems that deliver superior performance and provide excellent value with permanent, cleanable media, eliminating the need to purchase filters. You can read more about them here, including the CleanEffects filtration system.

The second option for whole-house air filtration is a media filter. Media filters provide good removal of dust, pollen, and other large particles, media filters are an excellent option for good filtration at a lower upfront cost than air cleaners.

Your home may have specific needs that require specific, individualized air filtration or general indoor air quality solutions. We’d be happy to help you figure out a great path forward so you can breathe a bit easier in your home.
