How To Improve Air Quality In The Spring
If you have allergies or asthma, your symptoms can worsen as the quality of the air you breathe gets worse. You may not know this, but the quality of the air inside of your home can have a big impact on your health and how you feel. The worse your indoor air quality, the more headaches, fatigue, and other issues you'll have.
Change Your HVAC Filter Often
Your HVAC system forces air to circulate throughout your entire home. As the air goes back into your ducts, it enters an air filter. The filter removes unwanted airborne particles from your indoor air. When your air filter gets full, it will cause a decrease in the flow of air in your home. You should make it a habit to check your filter every month to see if it needs a replacement. Most people find that their HVAC air filter needs a replacement every two to three months.
Get Your Ducts Cleaned
As air travels throughout your ducts, the air filter doesn't trap all the debris. Over time, this can cause unwanted dirt and grime buildup inside of your ducting. It's best to have a professional clean out your ducting every two to five years. Those who suffer from respiratory conditions should opt for every couple of years.
Add Some Plants Indoors
Plants can be a great way to purify the air inside of your home in the spring. They won't take care of all your purification needs on their own. But, they can be an inexpensive addition to your other air purification strategies. There are many common household plants that can help purify your home. These include the peace lily, dwarf date palm, devil's ivy, spider plant, and rubber plants.
Invest in Preventative Maintenance
Every spring, you should have an HVAC professional service your cooling system. During this process, they will deep clean the internal parts of your air conditioner. This will help remove debris that can end up in the air as it travels inside of your cooling system. While the system's air filter is a great way to reduce airborne particles, it can't stop them all. Having our HVAC team clean your cooling unit in the spring can improve your air quality.
Add a Whole-Home Air Purification System
A great way to fix air quality issues in your home during the spring is to invest in a whole-home air purifier. These can be alongside your HVAC system to help raise the air quality level in your home on a consistent basis.
