It’s that time of year again. Summer is winding down and fall is approaching. It’s sure to bring that crisp, cool air with it. But it can also bring pollutants and allergens. That’s why it’s important to consider the changes you need for your home setup and HVAC systems. You want to make sure that your air quality stays up to par.
Reduce Sources of Pollution
Things in our homes, like cleaning products or appliances, can worsen air quality in the home. Take the time to make sure that things like gas stoves, fireplaces, and ovens are working. Make sure they can ventilate outside of your home. You should consider having an HVAC professional take a look. They can make sure everything is running as well as possible to improve your air quality.
Control Air Flow
A more efficient HVAC system can improve air quality. You can help make sure that’s happening by keeping your home airtight. This way, you are controlling how much air gets into the house, and keeping those pollutants out. Go through the home and double check that you have sealed all leaks and to be thorough.
Air Out the Home
As mentioned above, it’s a good idea to keep your home airtight if possible. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t open up the windows and let the fresh fall air flow through the house. As clean air circulates through your home, it can clean the air that is stagnant or has pollutants.
Use a Humidifier
The air outside can become very dry in the autumn months. Because of this, a humidifier can make the air in your home more comfortable. Have an HVAC professional install one to your HVAC systems to humidify the entire house. You can also have individual units in certain rooms.
Have Your HVAC Systems Inspected
With the colder months coming, it’s a good time to get your HVAC systems inspected by a professional. Make sure that your HVAC system is running and up to date on maintenance. This is an excellent preemptive measure to keep your air quality top notch.
