how to raise your air quality

There’s no time quite like when the seasons decide to change a quarter of the way through the year. When spring hits, it usually means pollen and other allergens are in full force and ready to wreak havoc on everyone. The changing seasons not only make it difficult to breathe sometimes – this time of the year can ruin your home’s indoor air quality.

So how do you fix it? Raising your air quality at home isn’t too tough, but it’ll require a couple of dedicated changes to help make your home comfortable once again. Follow the pros at Acree Plumbing & Air as we give you a couple of handy ways to do just that!

Change Your Air Filter

This is a step that a lot of homeowners surprisingly neglect until it’s too late. You should ideally swap your air filter out every month, but give or take a few days depending on the type of filter. Filters are great at screening pollutants, but they wear down eventually.

And especially since they’re being bombarded with a ton of new allergens to keep out, it can’t do anything but help when you install a new one with the changing seasons.

Clean Some Ducts

Your ducts are generally hidden, so you might not pay too much attention to them unless something is wrong. But they’re always up there, funneling air and dispersing it through your home to provide you with the cool air you desperately need here in Florida.

But they get dirty too, and clogged ducts are no good. You don’t need to have your ducts cleaned too often, but getting a professional to perform this job every 5 years or so will be beneficial.

Bring in Some Green

Did you know that certain plants can do more than just make your home look prettier? Some plants are very good at removing moisture from the air, which will reduce humidity and in turn raise your home’s indoor air quality.

Peace lilies, Tillandsia and certain kinds of ivy are terrific examples of plants you can introduce to your home. You’ll be able to start breathing easier in addition to brightening up your living space!

Nip Any Problems in the Bud

The best way to make sure your home’s air quality is always high is to prevent your air system from suffering problems in the first place. But how do you do that? By scheduling preventative maintenance, of course.

When you allow an expert to service your home, you’ll get the handiwork of someone who has a wealth of knowledge and experience. They’ll discover any smaller issues that could potentially become larger problems if left untreated, and they’ll recommend the best ways to stop those concerns in their tracks.
