Whole House Humidifier: 4 Tips to Improve the Indoor Air Quality

While we often think of pollution as a problem that occurs only in big cities, it’s common for the indoor air quality in residential homes to be worse than the outside environment.

Improve Indoor Air Quality

In today’s post, we’ll provide you with four easy ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality.


Did you know that candles, soaps, and fragrances can all be irritating to the lungs?

Many of these products contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), some of which can have long-term health effects. U.S. safety regulations require that manufacturers list adverse skin effects, but they’re unnecessary to list inhalation effects.

Do your best to fill your home with organic scents whenever possible, and try to crack a window if you’ll be burning candles or other synthetic fragrances.


Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that significantly increases your risk of developing lung cancer and other respiratory issues.

Radon is currently the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States.

Testing for radon is inexpensive and easy to do, so make it a priority to test your home soon.

Vacuum and Dust Regularly

Nobody likes vacuuming and dusting, but these household chores are essential to maintaining fresh, clean air.

Pet dander, dust, chemicals, and other toxins can all remain in your home for months, so make an effort to clean your home weekly with a quality vacuum.

Units with a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter, for instance, are exceptionally good at picking up and trapping harmful particles.

Whole House Humidifier

Dust mites, mold, and allergens thrive when humidity levels are low.

Indoor Air Quality in Centennial is notorious for its dry air, especially in the winter, when the furnace is running at full capacity. Installing a whole-house humidifier is one of the best ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality.

The ideal humidity range falls anywhere between 35 and 50 percent, and our humidifiers can be precisely programmed to help you make your home as comfortable as possible.

Our customers report that their allergies are less severe, they get sick less often, and that their complexions improve after they’ve installed a whole-house humidifier.

We hope that today’s post will help you improve your home’s indoor air quality in the coming weeks and months.

“This past year we had Kurt, with Guardian Heating and Air, out to our house to install a mini-split system. We took Kurt‘s recommendation on the sizing of what we needed for our home. WE  COULDN’T BE HAPPIER!!!!! Kurt’s attention to detail and level of professionalism made for a quick and clean installation.  I work as a heavy civil construction superintendent, and having good contractors with a high level of integrity is key to a successful project. I may be in a different trade, but Guardian Heating and Air is somebody I would like to have on my team.”
