The quality of the air inside your home might not be something that you think about often — but you should! Keeping the air quality high can improve your health and make you feel better. Fortunately, there are some easy ways to quickly make the indoor air of higher quality. Try the following solutions today:
1. Aim for good ventilation
Removing items such as bacteria, pollutants, body odour and moisture can greatly improve the quality of the air that you breathe. Circulating fresh air through your home by opening windows or using spot ventilation dispels stale air that can become laden with impurities. These solutions provide only a temporary fix, though. A whole house ventilation system effectively and constantly introduces fresh air into your home before circulating it and removing the stale air.
2. Change filters regularly
The filters that are part of your heating system and air conditioner are designed to trap dust and debris so that it doesn’t go into the system’s mechanical components. Unless you change these filters regularly, though, they can’t be effective at removing pollutants and other impurities from the indoor air.
3. Vacuum often
Vacuumming often doesn’t just make your home look better. It also cuts down on the amount of dirt and dust that is circulated throughout it. Keeping the dust down to a manageable level can help freshen the air and make it easier for everyone to breathe.
