5 Ways To Improve Your Home Air Quality

September 27, 2023 | Blog

No matter where we are, we always want to breathe clean air. In our homes, however, this is especially important. Everybody deserves to have the best air quality as possible in their own homes, and with Air Tech of Humble, this is possible. Here are some ways that you can improve your indoor air quality (IAQ) in your home.

1. Change Your AC Filter

You may not realize it, but this is one of the best ways to improve your home’s air quality. Your AC filter works year-round to keep your home at the perfect temperature, so with its constant use, it’s important to replace it when needed.

To ensure a clean AC filter, get them replaced regularly. This will both keep your air clean and even help your air conditioner’s longevity.

2. Buy Indoor Plants For Around Your Home

Plants look nice to have around your home, and they’re practical too. Plants are constantly acting as natural air filters. They do this because they pull contaminants out of the air, and they even release more oxygen for us to breathe in. Here are some of the best and most popular plant choices to increase air quality:

  • Palm trees
  • Ferns
  • Lilies

Add to the ambiance of your home and improve your IAQ by investing in a houseplant.

3. Keep Your Carpets And Rugs Clean

If you have carpet in your home, then you know how much dust and dirt can gather there. While carpets and rugs do improve the coziness of your home, they can also negatively affect your indoor air quality if they aren’t cleaned regularly.

To avoid excess particles in your air, be sure to clean your carpets and rugs weekly. This way, you can remove all the particles that have gathered in them.

4. Control Humidity Inside Your Home

While you may not realize it, humidity is a large factor when it comes to air quality. If your home is humid, then it can breed things like mold or mildew. These can cause respiratory issues, especially if you are someone who suffers from asthma or allergies.

If you put a few dehumidifiers around your home, you can effectively remove any humidity that may be affecting your IAQ. There are many different affordable options on the market to put around your home.

5. Use Your Cooking Vents

This tip is another that people may not realize, but the kitchen is a source of many air pollutants. Especially if you have a gas stove, which releases carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide — both things we don’t want in our homes!

By opening your cooking vents any time you are cooking, you can help release any harmful air pollutants. If you feel you need even more air filtration, simply open a window.
