Your indoor air quality affects everyone in your family, especially if anyone has allergies. It’s surprising how the air in your home can be chock full of pollutants, but there are some easy ways to clean it up. Take a look at three pointers for great indoor air.

#1: Change Your HVAC Air Filter

The filters for your heating and cooling systems protect the equipment from dust and other airborne particles, but they also help protect your indoor air. They catch and trap things like dust, dust mites, pollen, dander, pet hair, mold, and other contaminants. Changing your filter is the easiest way to improve your air.

#2: Clean Your Air Ducts

As air blows from your HVAC system through your ducts and into the rooms of your house, it blows over whatever is in the ductwork. The stuff you find in the ducts can include mold, mildew, dust, dirt, debris, household chemicals, and other pollutants. Duct cleaning ensures the air in your home doesn’t come to you through dirty ducts.

#3: Humidity Control

The relative humidity in your home can have a significant impact on your indoor air. If it’s too high, it can lead to the growth of mold and can aggravate individuals with allergies or asthma. If the humidity is too low, it can lead to health-related issues such as dry sinuses, bloody noses, irritated breathing, respiratory issues, dry skin, and an increased chance for colds and flu. There are simple ways to protect the air you breathe. Find out more about improving your indoor air quality by contacting Wilson’s Refrigeration and Air.
