Indoor Air Quality: 4 Myths You Should Stop Believing

Myth 1: Indoor air quality is healthier than outdoor

Just because you stay in a clean home, doesn’t mean you’re breathing clean air. Most environmental contaminants may get circulated through your home via air conditioning units. Moreover, your home may already have dust, viruses, bacteria, and pet dander. Luckily, our Mitsubishi Electric unit has a Nano Platinum Filter that removes odours and pollutants from the air, providing healthier and cleaner air for you and your family to breathe.

Myth 2: Air fresheners are safe for indoor air quality

Most commercial air fresheners and fragranced products contain harmful chemicals that cause allergy-like symptoms (such as watering eyes, runny noses, and headaches). Opt for the natural route; keep the air fresh with proper ventilation. Consider trying citrus peels (lemon or orange), baking soda, and coffee grounds.

Myth 3: Air Filters Don’t Need Cleaning

The quality of the air you breathe at home depends on how often you change your air filters. For most AC units, filters should be cleaned every two months to reduce the circulation of pollution. If you wait too long or fail to maintain your AC, air pollutants may stay trapped in your home. Take advantage of our Nano Platinum Filter that is simple to clean and does not need to be replaced frequently.

Myth 4: Air Duct Cleaning is Unnecessary

Air ducts are like the lungs of your home. They circulate air through your AC units and then into your room. When the air moves, it collects dust and contaminants that exist within the ductwork. Therefore, air duct cleaning is recommended when it gets dirty over time. Consider cleaning your ducts if you notice an increase of dust settling on surfaces at home.
