When the heat of summer is upon us, it’s great to retreat to the indoors where it’s cool, but is your indoor air quality affecting your summer fun? Most of us don’t consider the quality of our indoor air; as long as it’s the right temperature, we’re generally pretty happy. But the truth is that our indoor air can be just as bad, if not worse than outdoor air. Here are 2 things you can do this summer to improve the indoor air quality in your home:
Moisture plus warm summer air equals mold and bacteria. One of the easiest ways to reduce the chances of getting mold and bacteria build-up in your home is to control the moisture. You can tell if you have too much humidity in your home by looking around your windows and doors for condensation, checking for mold growth in corners, on ceilings, and in the basement, and by using your nose to see if there is any sign of that telltale mildew odor.
The southern climate is typically very humid in the summer so it’s something we all battle, but adding a dehumidifier to your HVAC system can help control the interior humidity levels. This can make your home more comfortable but also improve the air quality.
Replacing your air filter regularly is one of the easiest ways to control your air quality. The filter is responsible for trapping and holding dust particles and other pollutants that travel through your HVAC system. The filter keeps them from recirculating throughout your house. A dirty filter is ineffective at catching those air pollutants. Changing the filter regularly will keep your HVAC system working optimally and your air quality where it should be.
Keeping your home cool and comfortable during the summer is important, and you can make sure you’re protecting your air quality at the same time with a few simple tricks.
