30 Apr How To Improve The Air Quality In Your Home
Although we may not like to always admit it, we spend a lot of our time indoors. Therefore, it is worthwhile to pay attention to the air quality inside of your home. Whether your home is too hot, dry, or dusty, there are a number of ways to make your home a little bit more comfortable for you and your family. Better Homes and Gardens offers a few simple tips to help improve the indoor air quality in your home.
Air Quality Tips:
- Air Conditioner – Air conditioning is a must have during hot summer months. Air conditioning units don’t just cool the air, they remove moisture too. Whether you have central air or a window unit, make sure that it is cleaned before using it at the beginning of the season.
- Air Filters – Filters are used to remove particles from the air, making it easier for people to breathe. Many air filters remove mold spores, pet dander, and soot. This is especially beneficial for those that suffer from allergies. Remember to replace your filters when they become clogged to keep your air clean.
- Humidifiers – When humidity levels are off, you may feel like the air is too dry or too sticky. Optimal humidity levels are between 35 and 50 percent. Humidifiers can be used to add moisture to the air, while dehumidifiers remove moisture. Adjusting these levels can help make your home feel more comfortable.
