Better indoor air quality is not out of your reach.
It’s springtime, which means it’s time to take a good hard look at your indoor air quality. When spring has sprung, there’s one thing you can count on for certain: allergies. Can you keep them at bay? Here are three creative ways to do just that by improving your indoor air quality:
#1: Change Your Air Filter
This seems too simple, which is why it’s number one. Changing your air filter might be the easiest thing you can do to have an impact on your indoor air. The primary job of the air filter for your heating and cooling system is to grab all of those air pollutants and allergens that are making you miserable before they get pulled into the system and then recirculated through your home. Keep the filter clean and help keep the air clean.
#2: Watch the Humidity
Dry air is a magnet for viruses, but humid air can create a perfect environment for bacteria and mold. Controlling the relative humidity in your home is a good way to control the air quality. Adding humidity in the winter and removing it in the summer will help reduce allergies in the spring when the weather is warming up.
#3: Filter Your Air
There are many things in bloom and many common allergens floating through the air in the spring. If you suffer from allergies, it’s the worst time of year for you. An air filtration system can help remove a huge percentage of allergens from the air so you don’t breathe them in when you’re in your home.
