Your indoor air quality affects everything from your health to your HVAC system. If you feel like you could be feeling better, it could be that your indoor air isn’t as good as it could be. Take a look at four quick ways to improve it.
#1: Open the Windows
When it’s not too hot and not too cold out, opening the windows is a great way to let fresh air into your house. Open more than one, and you’ll get a cross breeze to improve your indoor air.
#2: Change Your Air Filter
Changing your HVAC air filter is one of the easiest ways to get some pollutants out of the air you’re breathing. The filter traps things like dust, pet dander, mold, and pollen that float around your house, especially in the summer. When the filter is dirty, it can’t catch those pollutants, and they end up circulating through your home.
#3: Consider an Air Filtration System
When you incorporate a filtration system with your existing heating and cooling equipment, you can rest easy knowing the air in your home is cleaner whenever your HVAC runs.
#4: A Dehumidifier Can Help
In the summer, when it’s hot and humid, the moisture levels in your house rise. That moisture can encourage the growth of mold and mildew. The only way to bring the humidity down is with a dehumidifier. Installing one with your HVAC system can make your air cleaner and help you and your family feel better. You don’t have to suffer in silence when your indoor air quality isn’t what it should be. Talk to the experts at G+S Energy Services about other ways you can breathe easier.
