As the weather in Summerlin, NV, heats up, indoor air quality becomes even more important. Here are some simple tips you can use to clean the air that your family breathes this summer while maintaining a high level of comfort.
Improve Air Circulation Around the House
One of the easiest ways to improve your indoor air quality is to open doors and windows when temperatures are cooler. For hotter days and nights, consider investing in whole-home ventilation. Exhausting stale indoor air and replacing it with fresh and preconditioned air will help you breathe easier.
Change Air Conditioner Filters Regularly
Your air conditioner also helps to improve indoor air quality by filtering the air in your home. However, it can only do that if dust and contaminants don’t clog your air conditioner’s filter.
Change the air filters for your central HVAC system about every 30-90 days. Manufacturers usually recommend replacing filters every 90 days, but if you have family members with allergies or sensitive respiratory systems, more frequent filter changes may be necessary.
Install a Whole-Home Air Purifier
Many homeowners will buy a small air purifier to help clean the air in a particular room. This can be helpful for family members with asthma or allergies. However, these devices have a small, limited impact on indoor air quality.
A better solution is an air purification system for the entire home. Whole-home air purifiers remove dust and pollutants that might otherwise end up clogging your HVAC filter and air ducts too. This can help the entire system work more efficiently.
Those are some easy ways to improve the air quality inside your home.
