5 Helpful Indoor Air Quality Tips
It’s important to keep the air in your home as clean as possible so that you and your family can breathe easy. Here are five tips to improve air quality at your home in Denver.
1. Clean or Change HVAC Filters Regularly
Almost all HVAC systems have a filter in them. This filter collects the dust and dander from your air. When the filter gets clogged, it can’t work effectively. Therefore, you should change or clean it regularly.
2. Get Regular HVAC Maintenance
Every appliance in your home requires regular maintenance to run at peak efficiency. Your HVAC system is no different. Call your friends at Cooper Heating & Cooling at least once a year to have us check and maintain your unit. Your equipment will last longer and keep your air cleaner.
3. Get House Plants
Plants release fresh oxygen. Having plants in your home will circulate clean air through it. Bamboo, ivy, and daisies are particularly effective. Put them in the areas of your home you are most concerned about. While this change might be small, it will be noticeable.
4. Use Chemical-Free Cleaning Products
Many people keep a relatively clean home. To do this, you need different products to wipe off counters, clean glass, mop floors, and scrub tubs. Most of those products have chemicals. The chemicals can get in the air, causing you and your family to breathe them. Go for cleaning products that don’t use any chemicals.
5. Don’t Smoke
If you haven’t prohibited smoking in your home already, you should do so immediately. When you smoke, everyone living with you will start to breathe in the toxins and smoke from the cigarettes. The smoke will not only affect the quality of the air in your home, but it will cause your home to smell as well. If you do enjoy the occasional cigarette or cigar, be sure to do so outside.
