Especially with the current global health crisis we are all experiencing at the moment, homeowners should give more importance to hygiene and cleanliness in their household. One of the most common questions that may come to mind is how to improve indoor air quality in your home. Several indoor air pollutants such as those coming from cigarette smoke, pets, gas leaks, mold, mildew, and more can affect the quality of air indoors and can, of course, affect your health.
Your HVAC system plays a significant role in keeping the indoor air quality (IAQ) at healthy levels. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Clean Your AC and Replace Air Filters: Depending on how much you use your air conditioning system at home, the air filter must be cleaned frequently and replaced at least once or twice a year. This is even more important to do when you have a family member who is prone to allergies.
- Schedule AC Maintenance: AC maintenance is also very important too. By getting a contractor to check your air conditioning system, they can also clean it at the same time. They can also check whether all parts are still in excellent condition to prevent issues.
- Inspect Air Ducts and Vents: The ventilation system and air ducts of your home can gather dust and debris over time. Have your HVAC contractor inspect these areas to ensure they are clean so that the air that circulates in your home also remains clean.
These are only some of the many ways your HVAC system can help in maintaining your home’s IAQ at healthy levels.
