It’s important to ensure the air quality in your home is good for you and your family. Stale indoor air and heating systems can increase the amount of allergy-inducing dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores circulating through your house. Indoor air quality tends to be worse in the winter months because there is often no flow of fresh air from the outside, meaning allergens stay trapped inside. Making an effort to improve indoor air quality can help you and your family breathe easy and stay healthy.
Check Your Ventilation
Ventilation and air exchange are a key part of your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system, called HVAC, that help maintain clean air. You should monitor your home’s ventilation.
Keep return air vents clean.
The vents inside your home are also important to your home’s air quality.
Change your filters. Most furnaces and air conditioners have an air filter meant to filter dust and debris. If this becomes clogged, your system might not work properly, which can affect the air.
