Healthy indoor air quality in your Las Vegas, Nevada, home during the winter is important. There are a number of ways you can improve it. Create the most comfortable living space by utilizing these tips for improving your indoor air quality:
Change Your Air Filter Regularly
Your HVAC system’s air filter works to remove particles, dust, dander and more from your home’s air. Making a habit of replacing them regularly can do wonders for your home’s air. Aim to do so every one to three months.
Replace Your Cleaning Products
The more we seal our homes against the winter air, the more we trap contaminants in it. Ensuring your home is clean during the winter can help improve its indoor air quality. But if you’re using toxic cleaning supplies that introduce volatile organic compounds (VOCs) to your home’s air, you’re replacing one problem with another. Opt for natural cleaning supplies or ones that market themselves as low- or no-VOC products.
Buy an Air Purifier
Talk to an HVAC contractor about your home’s air purifier options. Air purifiers work to catch and kill airborne contaminants that are floating around your home. Think of them as more effective and active versions of your HVAC system’s air filter.
Have Your Ducts Cleaned
If your home has ducts, it’s a good idea to have them cleaned every year or two. If you notice an increase of dust when you turn your heating system on, it’s possible that your ducts may be picking up dirt from leaks. Call us to give your home’s ducts a good cleaning to improve your indoor air quality.
Schedule Annual Maintenance
Scheduling an annual check-up can help you ensure you’re getting the most comfortable indoor air quality levels for you and your family. Service technicians know what to look for to make your system run efficiently and cleanly. They can make adjustments that maximize your HVAC system’s lifespan.
