With summer temperatures ever-increasing, everyone deserves a cool home and clean air to keep them refreshed, comfortable, and healthy.

If your home’s indoor air quality isn’t where it should be, there are some tips you can take to improve your air quality. Here are some DIY tricks that will keep your home cool and your air fresh.

Change Your Air Filter

One of the best things you can do is change your air filter routinely. We recommend replacing your air filters every one to three months.

When an air filter is dirty, it won’t allow your AC unit to push cool air into your home properly and won’t effectively remove bacteria, pathogens, and more. It’s best to upgrade to a more advanced air filter that better blocks out harmful contaminants.

Open Your Doors & Windows Occasionally

Increasing your home’s natural ventilation is a wonderful, eco-friendly way to improve indoor air quality. Opening windows and doors allows fresh air to get in while pathogens, toxic chemicals, and more leave.

Turning on a fan or another appliance that helps circulate your home’s air will significantly increase natural ventilation.

Keep Humidity Levels at Bay

Your home’s humidity levels should stay within the 30% to 50% range. If your home is too humid, it allows mold and mildew to thrive, leading to a range of issues such as worsening allergy and asthma symptoms.

Keep your health in check and your home free from musty odors by installing a dehumidifier or keeping your doors and windows closed when the weather is too humid.

Remove Mold & Mildew

If you have mold and mildew in your home, even a small amount, the problem should be addressed ASAP to avoid potentially serious health issues.

Once mold and mildew are remediated, make sure they don’t return by using air cleaners or scrubbers, fixing leaky pipes, and more.

Keep Your Ducts Clean

Dirty ductwork can decrease how well your air conditioner functions. Scheduling routine duct cleanings with a professional is a sure way to improve your AC’s efficiency and, thus, boost your home’s indoor air quality.
