According to studies from the Environmental Protection Agency, Americans spend nearly 90 percent of their lives indoors. That’s even truer in today’s climate when more people are self-isolating. With such a staggering amount of time spent indoors, it’s important to focus on the air quality in your Yulee, Florida, home. Here are some quick and easy ways to improve indoor air quality, helping you breathe easier and keep your family healthy.
Change the Air Filter
Though you may not think about your air filter often, it’s always working hard to ensure you have clean air. When your HVAC system creates treated air, it passes through these filters, removing dust and other household pollutants.
However, air filters can’t stay clean forever. That’s why you should replace yours every 30 to 90 days, depending on your HVAC sytem’s workload. It’ll keep the air clean, and you won’t have to worry about any harmful contaminants.
Consider an Air Cleaner or Purifier
When you or your family members suffer from asthma or allergies, a basic filter might not do the trick. That’s when you should consider an air cleaner or purifier. This second line of defense removes dust and debris from the air, trapping and killing bacteria, viruses and other harmful critters.
Schedule a Tuneup
