Your indoor air quality has a big impact on your health and well-being, but homeowners tend to put it on the bottom of their to-do list. The good news is there are some simple HVAC tips you can follow for better indoor air. Take a look at three of them.
Tip #1: Change Your Air Filter
Your HVAC air filter is your first line of defense when it comes to airborne pollutants. The filter traps dust, pollen, dander, and other contaminants as they pass through the heating and cooling units. So not only does it protect the equipment, but it also helps keep your indoor air cleaner.
Tip #2: Consider Indoor Humidity
In the summer, too much humidity can impact your indoor air by creating an environment ripe for mold growth, a severe health hazard. In the winter, when the humidity drops, air that’s too dry can irritate your sinuses, respiratory system, and skin, as well as creating a hospitable climate for viruses to thrive. Adding a dehumidifier or humidifier can help you breathe easier.
Tip #3: Add Air Filtration
One of the best ways to improve your indoor air is with an air filtration system. Based on what contaminants are most prevalent in your home, a good HVAC company can customize filtration. So, whether you have a lot of pets, live in an area with more than average pollen, or have an issue with cleaning chemicals, a filtration system in place can help improve the quality of the air you and your family breathe.
