Do you feel like your home’s air is stale or stuffy no matter the season? There are many ways you can improve the air quality in your Eighty Four, Pennsylvania, home that won’t include opening the windows, especially when the outdoor air is too hot or too cold. Keep reading to learn how you can improve and maintain clean and healthy indoor air year-round.
Establish a Cleaning Routine
One way to improve and maintain good indoor air quality is to establish a cleaning routine. Stale indoor air is caused by dust and other particles in the air. Regularly vacuuming, dusting, and cleaning your home will help remove those contaminants from your home and keep your air cleaner.
Conduct Regular HVAC Maintenance
You should also conduct regular maintenance on your HVAC system. Since your home’s air cycles through the HVAC system several times a day, dust will also collect in the system’s air filter. You should check and replace the air filter about every 30–60 days, depending on the type of filter. A clogged air filter can no longer do its job by removing the dust that passes through the HVAC system, so regularly replacing it will help you maintain clean indoor air.
Install an Air Cleaner
If you or one of your family members is especially sensitive to air pollutants, consider installing an air cleaner in your HVAC system. Your typical air filter is designed to catch many of the larger air pollutants in your indoor air; however, an air purifier is designed to catch those smaller pollutants and prevent them from continuing to cycle throughout your home.
