If you have asthma or allergy sufferers in your Pine Bluff, Arkansas, home, focusing on improving your indoor air quality is vital. It’s also critical if you want to reduce your risk of respiratory illness. Are you looking to improve the indoor air quality of your home? Try these simple IAQ tips:
Maintain Good Airflow
Proper airflow, circulation, and ventilation are all necessary to keep the air from becoming stagnant and allowing pollutants to buildup in your home. Maintain your HVAC system to keep the airflow consistent. Open windows when the weather isn’t too cold or hot. Invest in a ventilation system for your home. If dirty ductwork is hindering your airflow, schedule duct cleaning. As a result, your HVAC system will work more efficiently.
Use Natural Cleaning Products
Many cleaning products, especially air fresheners, contain volatile organic compounds. These can wreak havoc on your indoor air quality. Instead of reaching for a chemical cleaning product, try natural solutions such as baking soda, vinegar and lemons. You can use these three items to make a host of cleaning products to clean everything from tubs to windows. You can also purchase green cleaning products.
Keep Your AC Unit Clean
Your AC system will help improve the air quality by drawing the air through a filter. As a result, it removes particle pollutants. To keep your system functioning properly and prevent dirt buildup, schedule an AC tune-up twice a year. Keep the area around your unit clear of debris, and change your filter every month. During a tune-up, your HVAC service technician will also address any airflow issues that you need to rectify.
Keeping good IAQ in your home will improve your health. It can also improve sleep and lower the cost of cleaning. Want to improve the IAQ in your home? Contact Pine Bluff Heating & Air at 870-275-4006 today to schedule your AC tune-up or duct cleaning service.
