Your indoor air quality can take a hit in the fall. Instead of suffering when you’re at home, take a look at three best practices to improve your indoor air before winter.
1: Change Your Air Filter
Most people think of spring allergens as being the peskiest but fall has its fair share as well. Changing your air filter is one of the easiest ways to help keep them from circulating through your home. Changing it every 60-90 days is a great way to improve your indoor air year-round.
2: Install an Air Filtration System
A good air filtration system works alongside your HVAC equipment to filter your air. It can rid your indoor air of pollen, dust, dust mites, dander, mold spores, household chemicals, and more. Your house will stay cleaner without all of the airborne particles floating around, and your family will feel better when they breathe cleaner air.
3: Adjust the Humidity
Too much or too little humidity can affect your indoor air quality. In the winter, when the air is dry, a humidifier can help keep things like viruses and bacteria at bay. In the summer, when the moisture in the air goes up, a dehumidifier can help prevent pollutants such as mold and dust mites.
Spring is the season for lots of allergy flare-ups. But fall is equally bad when it comes to air quality. Be sure to keep your family breathing easy by following some simple practices to improve your indoor air quality.
