Please call us for specific suggestions you can try based on your budget and needs. Below are some recommendations you can try today that will help maintain good indoor air quality regardless of your current conditions. 

1 – Bring Nature Inside

There are a number of indoor plants available that can help you improve the quality of the air in your home. Some of these plants include Aloe, Rubber Tree, Bamboo Palm, Snake Plants, and Red-Edged Dracaena.

2 – Leave Your Furnace Blower On

Air stagnating in your home will be recirculated by the furnace and filtered, which will improve your indoor air quality. This can provide relief for allergy sufferers and respiratory sensitivities.

3 – Change Your Air Filter

Your HVAC system will not work properly if you don’t have an efficient air filter in place. These devices efficiently filter harmful pollutants from your indoor air, such as dust, allergens, and other pollutants. It doesn’t matter the season. Replace your air filter regularly. 

If it is wildfire season or the air quality suddenly becomes hazardous, change your air filter as soon as possible, even if you just purchased a new one You may be surprised to discover that air filters can get dirty or clogged after just a few days or weeks in hazardous conditions.

4 – Receive Proper Maintenance

Maintaining your ventilation and HVAC systems properly and cleaning them on a regular basis can improve indoor air quality. Poor ventilation causes contaminants to accumulate in your home over time, which result in poor air quality, so you need to stay on top of your seasonal cleaning and maintenance.

5 – Run Exhaust Fans & Use Dehumidifiers

The presence of moisture within your home can cause poor air quality. Showering and cooking can produce increased humidity levels which can leave your home vulnerable to mold and bacterial growth.

6 – Keep Carpets Clean

The quality of your home air can greatly be affected by the condition of your carpets, so keep them free of dust and dirt to keep air cleaner and fresher.
