Tips to Improve Air Quality in Your Home

Your home’s indoor air quality can affect your comfort level and health. If you use an air conditioner, it’s important to keep the air filter clean. That may mean installing a new filter every month depending on the conditions the filter is exposed to and the filter type. For the rest of the HVAC system, it’s important to keep the vents clean and the heating system properly maintained. A heating system that goes without maintenance, could create carbon monoxide; it could also become a breeding ground for mold and a home for animals. Keeping your humidity level between 30 and 50 percent helps reduce the likelihood of mold. Your AC should be able to do this for you in the summer. 

Installing a trickle ventilator is perfect for people who live in places where there are a lot of vehicles or factories. These vents can be retro-fitted to the home, and they clean the air that comes into the house, which provides you with a continuous flow of fresh air.

One of the best things you can do for your home is to declare your property a no smoking area. Secondhand smoke is one of the largest contributors to poor indoor air quality. Certain varieties of plants like English Ivy and Bamboo Palm are great for cleaning the air. Many of the varieties of Dracaena are also good at cleaning the air.
