How to Improve Indoor Air Quality for World Asthma Day

World Asthma Day

As we move into the warmer months, you might notice that allergens like dust, mold, pet dander and seasonal allergens make it harder to breathe — this is especially true for those who suffer from asthma.

Today, we remind homeowners of the importance of identifying and removing allergens and irritants that lead to asthma attacks. Here are a few tips to help you improve indoor air quality this spring and summer.

Tips for Improving Indoor Air Quality:

  • Change Your Air Filters – Air filters are designed to catch dirt, dust, and other debris. As air moves through your air conditioning system, these air filters catch particles and keep the air in your home clean. However, when these filters become clogged, air doesn’t move through your home as freely. It’s important to change out your air filters at the start of the air conditioning season so that you not only remove these allergens triggers, but also so that your air conditioning system is working efficiently.
  • Install a Dehumidifier – Humid conditions are a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. By installing a dehumidifier, you can keep your home a comfortable temperature on hot days.
  • Install an Air Filtration System – Air cleaners are specifically designed to improve indoor air quality by removing 99.98% of airborne allergens. Trane CleanEffects filters the air in your home while still allowing it to flow freely.
