At Western Heating & Air Conditioning, we make indoor air quality our top priority and want to pass along any helpful tips to you. There are many steps that you can take to breathe more easily at any time of year. Whether it’s the middle of a heat wave, or you’re bottled up for the winter, consider the following tips for fresher, healthier air in your home.
Promote good indoor air quality with air duct cleaning.
You can begin by checking all of the air ducts in your home. From ducts that are placed on the roof to your dryer, heating, and air conditioning vents, you can make sure that they are cleaned out regularly to avoid a build-up of dust, allergens, and toxins. When you clear your ducts, you avoid a flood of unhealthy materials in your air. If there is any area that you are not sure how to address, you can turn to us as the experts at an HVAC company.
Keep your floors clean.
Be proactive with your floors. Vacuum and mop regularly to ensure you collect particles as often as possible to keep them out of the air. Door mats are a plus as well. Place mats outside entrances and the moment people walk in. Clean them regularly as well. Removing shoes at the door will help you to minimize the dirt that is tracked through your home and added to the air you breathe.
Make your home smoke-free.
An Italian study on WebMD compared smoking pollution in your home to the exhaust of an older, diesel car while the Center for Disease Control and Pollution found that banning smoking in public places reduced the presence of suspended particles in the air by over 80%. Keep smoke out of your home.
