Spring is a rejuvenating time of year when trees and flowers bloom, but it’s also the time when insects come out these same plants release large amounts of pollen into the air. For those with sensitive allergies or who simply dislike dust covering their furniture, this can be a nuisance. Fortunately, these tips can help you can take to improve your home’s ventilation and maintain better indoor air quality:
Use High-Quality Air Filters
Basic air filters are designed to keep dust particles from entering your HVAC system, but high-quality filters can also trap bacteria and allergens as the air is recirculated throughout your home. Depending on your location and rate of usage, it is important to replace your air filters every one to three months in order to prevent long-term damage to sensitive heating and cooling components. In order to mitigate the need for potentially harmful pest control chemicals, consider investing in weather stripping and window screens.
Ventilate Stale Air
Most forced air HVAC systems don’t actively pull in air from the outdoors; they do so through the large vents inside your home with air filters. Periodically opening windows when the weather allows or using a mechanical means of ventilation can get rid of stale indoor air and any lingering pollutants floating around.
Eliminate Pollutant Sources
Controlling the sources of indoor air pollutants is one of the most effective ways to improve air quality. You don’t have to get rid of any pets to mitigate dander, but items such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other biological contaminants can and should be controlled. Air fresheners, mold, and household cleaners are some of the biggest offenders. Follow the link for a list some of the most common indoor air pollutants .
