Health Tip: Improve Air Quality at Home09/21/12
(HealthDay News) -- If the air inside your home is stagnant and
doesn't get replaced very often, the indoor pollution that results
could worsen symptoms of allergies, asthma, or other chronic lung
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency suggests how you can
improve indoor air quality at home:
- Improve emissions or eliminate entirely sources of indoor air
pollution, such as wood-burning stoves.
- Modify air conditioning or heating systems to allow intake of
more air from the outside.
- Use exhaust fans to push contaminated air out of the home.
- Use an indoor air-filtering device.
