2 Tips for Improving Your IAQ

Maintaining the quality of your home’s indoor air is crucial to your health and comfort at home. There is so much debris, dirt, dust, and bacteria that float throughout your home on a daily basis, and you end up inhaling it over time. Prevent this from happening with our IAQ improvement techniques.

Replace Your Air Filters

Step one in maintaining your indoor air quality is making sure you’re consistently swapping out your home’s air filters. It is one of the easiest yet most important ways that you can impact the quality of your home’s air. The rule of thumb that we recommend is swapping your filters at least every 90 days. However, there are a few reasons you should switch them more frequently.

  • If you have kids
  • If you have indoor pets
  • If anyone smokes or vapes
  • If anyone has respiratory sensitivities
  • If there are any babies or young children at home

If any of those scenarios apply to you, then we recommend swapping your air filters every 30 days!

Utilize Natural Ventilation

Natural ventilation is another great way to improve indoor air quality and keep fresh air circulating throughout your home. It’s tempting to keep your house closed up in the middle of summer we don’t recommend it.

Natural ventilation is an important way of allowing fresh air to circulate throughout your home while stale, polluted air is pushed back outside. To enjoy that fresh air while keeping the heat out, we recommend utilizing this technique in the early morning and late evening when the air is coolest!
