Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality
Investing in Quality Air Filters
Replacing your HVAC system’s air filters on a regular basis is essential. Most homeowners are aware of this. However, many are unaware that standard air filters contain one inch of fiberglass, which usually does nothing to improve indoor air quality or clean the air in your home; only protect your home comfort equipment. This means investing in better air filters could go far in your home to improve your dwelling’s air quality. Homeowners should consider this if anything compromises their home’s indoor air quality.
Keeping Up With Seasonal Maintenance
Staying consistent and keeping up with routine maintenance on your HVAC system is essential for longevity, comfort, and indoor air quality. As a matter of fact, staying proactive with your HVAC unit will ensure that it will run smoothly and efficiently as it is intended to. In addition, staying up to date on your seasonal maintenance will always keep your equipment safe in the long run and ensure your air quality stays in good health.
Homeowners may be unaware, but a large share of indoor air pollutants and causes for additional humidity comes from bathrooms and kitchens. Likewise, carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide are toxic contaminants released from gas stoves and at a lower level for electric stoves, as well as other harmful pollutants that can absorb naturally into your bloodstream. So, make sure to open a window or turn on the vents in your home when you start cooking or need to use the bathroom to help filter out the toxic pollutants from your air supply.
Maintain Healthy Humidity
Standard humidity levels within residential homes should be between 30 and 50 percent. However, most HVAC professionals prefer humidity levels to be at least between 35 and 40 percent, 30 at the absolute lowest during the winter months. Keeping an eye on your home’s humidity levels is especially important for optimizing your indoor air quality, which is why you should keep an eye on your home’s humidity levels year-round.
