Maintaining good air quality in your home is important. If the air quality in your home is bad, it can lead to members of your household getting sick, and it can lead to your HVAC unit not being energy efficient. Poor indoor air quality can also shorten the lifespan of your heating and cooling components. There are ways that you can make sure that the air quality of your home is perfect.
Things You Should Do To Improve Your Air
Here are several things that you should do to improve your indoor air quality.
• Furnace filters. On your furnace, you have a filter. That filter should be changed every month to every two months. This will all depend on the type of filter you have. If you have a washable filter, you can clean it once a month to ensure that it is clean. When replacing your air filter, you will want to make sure that it is put back in place correctly to ensure that no unfiltered air makes it around the filter and into the unit.
• UV light. If you want to make sure that the air in your home is free of bacteria, mold, and germs, you will want to consider having a UV light installed. The UV light is installed inside of your ductwork. When any bacteria, germs, and mold come into contact with the light, they are neutralized immediately.
• Air purifier. To ensure that you have the cleanest air possible in your home, it is a good idea to purchase an air purifier. An air purifier can help get allergens like pollen and dust mites out, ensuring that your air is as clean as possible.
• Cleaning regularly. Be sure to dust and clean your home regularly. This will help to ensure that no dust or debris is building up in your home.
Doing the things listed above will help to ensure that you have no issues with your air quality.
