How to Improve Your Home’s Air Quality This Spring

Many homes in West Palm Beach, FL, suffer from poor indoor air quality. The average person spends most of their time inside, whether at home, at work or running errands. Maintaining good indoor air quality is critical to your respiratory health. Here’s how to improve your home’s air quality this spring for cleaner and fresher indoor air:

Trap Particles With a Clean AC Filter

Changing your air conditioner’s filter frequently is the most important task you can complete to protect the system from damage and improve your home’s air quality. HVAC professionals recommend changing your AC system’s filter every 30-90 days. If you suffer from allergies, change it every month to help ease your most severe symptoms.

Install an Air Purifier to Remove Pollutants

While a clean AC filter does a good job of trapping many particle pollutants, it can’t trap them all. You need a quality air purifier to trap the smallest in your home environment. Air purifiers can remove bacteria, viruses and other indoor contaminants. Consider installing a whole-home air purifier for purification around your entire household.

Enjoy Fresh Air With Whole-Home Ventilation

Modern homes have tighter thermal envelopes to help with maximizing energy efficiency. While that’s good for minimizing cooling costs, it’s not ideal for maintaining good indoor air quality. With an energy recovery ventilator, you can exhaust stale indoor air and replace it with fresh air from outside, preconditioned for optimal comfort.

Use a Dehumidifier to Remove Excess Moisture

It’s no secret West Palm Beach is hot and humid during the summer. To prevent excess moisture and microbial growth in your house, install a dehumidifier. Aim to achieve an ideal humidity level between 40% and 60%.
