HOW TO IMPROVE INDOOR AIR QUALITY
The tips below will help you keep your indoor air quality at its best regardless of the conditions or your environment. Be sure to give us a call for specific suggestions you can try based on your budget and needs.
1 – Bring Nature Inside
There are a number of indoor plants available to help improve indoor air quality. Consider purchasing Aloe, Rubber Tree, Bamboo Palm, Snake Plant, and Red-Edged Dracaena to give your indoor air quality a natural boost.
2 – Leave Your Furnace Blower On
With the furnace blower on, stagnant air will be recirculated and filtered, thereby improving your indoor air quality. This is an easy way to provide relief for anybody with allergies or respiratory sensitivities living in your home.
3 – Change Your Air Filter
Air filters are among the most important aspects of your HVAC system. These devices effectively filter out airborne contaminants, including dust, allergens, and other pollutants. It doesn’t matter what season it is. Change your air filter often.
When you have hazardous air quality or during wildfire season, you’ll need to change your air filter more often. You may be surprised to discover that a new air filter gets dirty or clogged after just a few days in hazardous conditions.
4 – Receive Proper Maintenance
Cleaning your HVAC and ventilation systems and keeping them functioning properly can improve indoor air quality. Poor or stagnated ventilation can cause contaminants to accumulate and eventually circulate through your home, so you need to stay on top of seasonal maintenance and cleaning.
5 – Run Exhaust Fans & Use Dehumidifiers
Poor air quality can be caused by moisture levels. Showering and cooking can cause humidity levels to rise if your home is tightly sealed. This leaves you vulnerable to mold and toxic bacteria. To combat this, keep fans running as often as possible and consider buying a home dehumidifier.
6 – Keep Carpets Clean
Even though you may not have given your carpets much thought, their fibers can greatly impact the quality of your home air. Keep your carpets clean and clear of dust and dirt to help maintain a cleaner, fresher air in your home.
