Change Out Air Filters
Your A/C system doesn’t just regulate your home’s temperature all day! It simultaneously cycles through your home’s air to filter out pollutants. However, your system’s filter will eventually fill up and be unable to adequately filter out your home’s air. The rule of thumb is to change your system’s filter at least every 90 day! This simple tip will not only increase your system’s lifespan, but also improve efficiency, and enhance indoor air quality.
Check Air Ducts
Checking your air ducts is an easy way to diagnose the state of your home’s air quality. A duct cleaning from our Cool Today team is a simple fix to high utility bills and poor indoor air quality. Your ducts will be sanitized, free of debris, and able to improve your system’s efficiency.
Utilize Exhaust Vents
Believe it or not, the kitchen is home to a range of cooking pollutants and lingering bacteria. All methods of cooking, including gas, wood, and electricity, produce indoor air pollutants. Natural gas and propane stoves can produce carbon monoxide and formaldehyde, which can be toxic to family members and pets. It is highly recommended to use cooking ventilation and fans while in the kitchen to aid in filtering out air pollutants.
Control Humidity Levels
Controlling the humidity levels in your home is important due to the nature of what moist conditions can transpire into. Humid and moist environments are the ideal settings to breed mold and bacteria which are respiratory triggers for allergies and asthma. Placing dehumidifiers in your home is an easy and effective way to reduce the humidity in your home.
Keep Rugs and Carpets Clean
Although rugs and carpets are comfortable and personalize your space, they trap dust, hair, and pet dander in their fibers. It is important to regularly vacuum and clean your home’s rugs and carpets to maintain clean air quality!
