Making a Home Healthy During Summer

Monday, July 8, 2019

Summer is finally here and with it all the heat and stickiness! As much as you were looking forward to warm weather, now you can't wait to get out of it. You retreat inside your home, but is your home any healthier than the outdoors? It may be time to find out how healthy your indoor air really is.

Checking Your Air-Conditioning

There are many reasons people can't handle the oppressive summer weather. Many elderly people or small children don't fare well in the heat and need cooler temperatures. If you haven't checked or updated your sun air conditioning, now is a good time. Even if your home feels cool, you need to be sure your system is running at optimum efficiency, keeping your home comfortable and saving you money. If you don't have an air-conditioner, you may want to find out how a unit not only is healthier for you, but also keeps your home safe from the effects of humidity.

Air Quality Inside Your Home

There's not a lot you can do about the air quality outside, but that's not the case inside your home. Having a properly working air-conditioner not only cools the air, but it also conditions it and improves the quality. You may also want to consider an air purifier or even plants. Plants not only make your home look pretty, but certain ones act as a filtration for your air.

Putting a Stop to Mold

Making improvements to the air inside your home will also make it drier. This deters dampness and the growth of mold and can help you immensely with allergies. Remember, you should also dust once a week. More than likely, you'll notice you're not sneezing as much. If you had headaches, they may disappear. Once allergens are eliminated from your home, you may feel better than you have in a long time.

Avoiding Dehydration

Many people suffer from dehydration in the hot summer months. Spending time in the heat can sap you of energy if you don't stay properly hydrated. Drinking enough water can be a real challenge. The alternatives are headaches, bloating and even confusion. Keeping your home air-conditioned and fresh can help you avoid excessive sweating, dehydration and sunstroke.

A Healthy Escape

Now that you've made improvements to the air inside your home, you've also created a healthy retreat from hot summer weather. While everyone needs to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air, when the heat gets to be too much you'll know you've got a safe inside environment you can escape to.
