Getting the pros to look at your HVAC system is crucial to keep your system’s health and indoor air quality in tip-top shape. However, between the times you need to call a pro, you can do a lot just by following expert advice yourself.
Did you know that there are some DIY tricks to enhance your indoor air quality? Although HVAC maintenance is important, there are easy things you can do to improve your home’s indoor air quality. And at Precision Air, our experts know how important it is to remain vigilant about your indoor air quality. Here are some quick tips and tricks to keep your home’s indoor air quality at its best.
Change Air Filters
It’s easy to forget about air filters: they are out of sight and out of mind. However, air filters are crucial to maintaining impeccable air quality in your home. Air filters clean the air that goes through your home, trapping dust and other allergens. So when you don’t change your air filters, you’re just letting your systems recycle whatever pollutants were picked up. So, your air filters should be changed at least every three months.
Getting fresh air into your home is crucial to boosting your home’s indoor air quality. A poorly ventilated space will easily harbor pollutants, bacteria, viruses, and allergens. Ventilate your home by buying some plants, or opening a window to introduce fresh air to dilute bad air.
Additionally, ventilation is important in areas such as the kitchen. Kitchens can harbor a lot of toxicity in the air, especially if you have a gas stove releasing carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. Be sure to turn on kitchen vents and open windows to eliminate harmful pollutants and irritating cooking smells.
Hot summers in the South are no strangers to humidity. Harboring humid conditions inside the home can tank your indoor air quality. Moist air is the perfect breeding ground for mildew and mold, which are detrimental to your family’s health. By strategically placing dehumidifiers in your home, you can enhance the living conditions and air quality of your home in just minutes. We also sell whole-home dehumidifiers that run with the unit and are more effective than free-standing units
