How to improve air quality in your house?

The air quality in the home is important to the overall quality of life for those who live inside. From children to adults, the quality of air is important to one’s health and well-being. Without proper air quality, allergies, asthma and other respiratory conditions can be heavily affected. As dirt, dust and other irritants fill the air, the lungs can be affected and such conditions can be brought to the surface. To avoid allergy flare-ups, asthma attacks or other health issues, it is important to make sure that the air in the home is of the highest quality. Below are a few questions and concerns that home owners have when it comes to indoor air quality and how to deal with these issues.

Using your AC System to Improve Air Quality


One way to improve the air quality of the home is with a cooling system. The unit has several attributes that can contribute to clean air quality. First of all, be sure to change your air filter on a regular basis. The air filter is what keeps the air clean of irritants such as dust and dirt. A clean filter in your air conditioner allows the irritants to be captured and avoid the air. With a dirty filter, dirt and dust can escape and go in the air to cause such conditions to flare up. Be sure to change your filters on a regular basis to ensure the system can operate effectively and provide clean air in the home.


Should I air rooms or the home on a regular basis?

Many home owners wonder if airing out the space can be of assistance to clear the air of the home. This can be true in certain circumstances. Depending on the climate in which you live, it may be a good idea to air out certain rooms or the entire home on a regular basis. When the temperatures outside are comfortable, do not be afraid to raise the windows. It has been reported that the air quality inside the home can be less pure than the outside so it can be perfectly fine to air out the home from time to time without adverse effects.


Should I be concerned about mold?


Mold is a concern that many home owners face on a regular basis. If the walls, floor or ceiling of the home become damp they can be subject to mold. This can have a negative effect on the home, especially your health. Mold can be toxic and lead to health issues, even death. It is important to keep all surfaces and areas of the home free from water to avoid the growth of mold. If you do start to see areas in which mold exists, you will need to have the issue corrected right away to avoid any further damage, especially to your health.


Do my pets make a difference in the air quality of the home?

If you have pets in the home, they can affect the air quality. Pet dander can be an irritant, especially if you have an allergy. With your air conditioning system in full operation, the unit can spread the pet dander around which can cause asthma and allergies to be irritated. It is important to change your filters and regularly bathe pets to keep them clean and avoid massive amounts of pet hair.


How to Manage Poor Air Quality

Managing poor air quality is simple. A certified air quality specialist needs to assess your property and take the appropriate measures to get your home back on track. A test can be done in the home to see where your problems lie and then the technician will be able to provide the appropriate service for you to have a home with high quality air that only improves your way of life.

AMOLED display coming to Samsung Galaxy Tab range

This is a guest post by Erica about the arrival of AMOLED display to Samsung Galaxy Tab range.Samsung could be transplanting a seven inch AMOLED screen into an upcoming addition to its Galaxy Tab range of tablet computers.

You may have experienced an AMOLED display in a small portable device before as Samsung, Nokia and HTC have all used them in smartphones to date. However, the expense of producing AMOLED screens has prohibited them from appearing on larger devices like tablets, until now.


The seven inch Galaxy Tab was launched last year but an update with an AMOLED screen would be most welcome, cutting energy consumption and improving colours and contrast ratios across the board.


The rumours about this device state that it will run Android 3.0, feature a three megapixel camera on the rear, a two megapixel snapper on the front and have a display resolution of 1024x600 which is not bad for a device of this size.


The hardware powering the new Galaxy Tab will consist of a 1.2GHz processor w…

Building Blocks for Virtual Businesses : Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world

This is a guest post by Ripley Daniels about "Key technological systems you must have to succeed in the remote business world.

Whenever I tell friends I had a tough day at the office, they laugh at me. That's because they know I don't really have an office. I work very hard but I work for a company that is completely remote. Only a few of my co-workers ever go into an office at all and when they do, it's only for short periods of time. Our "office" is a virtual one. To us, the traditional office workplace is a thing of the past, alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex, the slide rule, and telephones where you stick your finger in a hole and turn a dial.
Unfortunately, none of this prevents me from having tough days. I still have them. But the reasons have nothing to do with the fact that my co-workers and I don't have a brick and mortar edifice that we can use to plan, strategize, hold our meetings, make presentations, discuss sensitive business topics, build relatio…
