Cleaner Indoor Air Means Fewer Sick Days
Those of us with children share a common goal—to keep our kids safe and healthy. This goal is especially important right now, as many of our kids will be returning to school as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
While practicing safe protocols of social distancing and mask wearing is imperative, it’s our duty as parents to take further precautions to keep our children healthy so the pandemic (and other sicknesses) doesn’t affect their education. And these health practices start at home!
One great way to safeguard your home against nasty germ invaders is through the proper care of your indoor air quality. Just as the Miller’s team can boost your home’s AC efficiency through regular HVAC maintenance, we’re also sharing indoor air quality tips to help keep your indoor air clean and your family healthy.
Kick Those Germs to the Curb!
Here are three ways you keep your kids healthy by giving your indoor space some TLC.
1. Balance Humidity
Balancing your home’s humidity is a key factor in keeping your children healthy. If the humidity in your home is too high, you run the risk of getting sick from mold. If your humidity is too low, dust mites could thrive and aggravate asthma issues. So, what’s a homeowner to do to keep kids safe? Call Miller’s for a consultation! We’ll determine the right type of humidity control for your home so you’re warding off those nasty germs!
2. Ventilate Properly
Today’s modern homes are so well sealed that they leave very little room for fresh air to make its way into the home. This can greatly affect your indoor air quality. For one thing, homes that aren’t ventilated properly can cause mold to grow which leads to sickness. To keep your home well ventilated, open your windows on pleasant days to let fresh air circulate inside and polluted indoor air outside. Other tips include installing ERVs or energy recovery ventilators. These systems are installed directly into your duct system and do a great job of pushing out stale, dirty air, while pulling in fresh, crisp air!
3. Clean That Indoor Air
If you really want to rid your indoor air of bad germs and nasty pollutants, treat your home to a new indoor air quality system. Our home installation products can alleviate allergy and asthma symptoms, reduce pet dander, remove kitchen smells and eliminate bacteria, dust particles, mold and more!

Bonus Tips for Fresher, Cleaner Air!
Don’t forget, some of the simplest ways for maintaining quality indoor air are to keep your home clean on a regular basis. Remember to opt for non-toxic, natural cleaning products that do not give off chemical pollutants. In addition, high-end filters for your HVAC system such as MERV or HEPA will also do a great job of keeping your indoor air expertly filtered!
