Five Tips to Improve the Air Quality in Your Home
Improve the Air Quality in Your Home
Most homeowners and office workers don’t think much about the air they breathe, unless it’s too cold, too warm, or too humid. But the fact is that your indoor air quality can have a significant impact on your health, and certainly on your daily outlook.
If you’ve never paid much attention to indoor air quality, chances are that your own may leave something to be desired. If you aren’t a do-it-yourselfer, you can certainly leave air quality and air duct cleaning in Phoenix to the professionals. However, if you do enjoy home projects or doing maintenance at the office, here are five ways you can improve the quality of the air you’re breathing.
Correct Humidity Setting
Winter time can be especially dry times in the home or office, with hot air being forced throughout the living/working space. By contrast, in the summer time many places become excessively humid, and need to have some of that moisture extracted. Using a humidifier or dehumidifier can accomplish these tasks nicely.
High-Tech Air Filters
By using the newer high-efficiency particulate absorption (HEPA) filters, most of the pollutants and other harmful debris can be effectively filtered out of your breathing air.
Too Many Fabrics?
If your home has a number of drapes, curtains, and rugs, you may be harboring all kinds of dust mites and residues from cleaning agents in the fabrics of these coverings. It may be worth your while to substitute other decorations and other coverings rather than continue providing shelter for dust mites.
Make Living Space Greener
You can go a long way toward making your living space more breathable by going green, in other words placing indoor plants strategically in spaces, so fresh oxygen is given out into the air. Secondarily, green plants are also good at filtering unwanted pollutants out of the air.
Check Your AC filter Regularly
It’s important to check your AC filter regularly and replace it as needed. In the hot summer of the Valley of the Sun, your AC unit is working overtime to keep you and your family cool, while preventing dust and other particles from circulating through the home. Check it often in the summer and change it as needed.
