Indoor air quality is more of an issue than most people might think. If you feel signs of allergies or irritation but chalk it up to the season, it could be right under your nose. The air inside our homes is usually worse than the air outside because we close our doors and windows for climate control, and the pollutants get trapped. But you can make it better. Take a look at some not-so-shocking ways to improve your indoor air.
#1: Keep Your House Clean
This seems obvious, but it can be challenging with dogs and kids and busy schedules. The cleaner you can keep your home, the fewer air pollutants there are to float around.
#2: Change HVAC Air Filters
Clean filters will help keep your indoor air clean. When they get clogged, they aren’t effective and can let particles get into your cooling system, which then circulates them throughout your home.
#3: Consider a Dehumidifier
Humid air can hold onto viruses, bacteria, and mold, especially during the summer. Clean your indoor air by reducing the humidity in your home.
#4: Install an Air Filtration System
Installing an air filtration system to work hand-in-hand with your heating and cooling system can help you breathe easier. It can keep both your air and your house cleaner.
