    5 Tips To Improve Your Indoor Air Quality This Summer

    Did you know that the indoor air quality in the average home can be up to 100 times more polluted than outside air? If you’ve been on the fence about improving your indoor air quality, there’s no better time than the summertime! Here are 5 tips to improving the quality of air inside your home.

    1. Bring Fresh Air Inside

    In other words, open some windows and doors – even for a short period of time. By doing this, you’re helping to reduce the CO2 levels in your home. Not only that, but you’re also helping to reduce the concentration of toxic chemicals that live in your space. Breathe in the fresh air, exhale the poor air!

    1. Change Your Filters Regularly

    Energy Star recommends you change your filters every one to three months at a minimum. If you have pets, kids, or anyone with allergies or asthma living with you, it’s important to change them every month. By changing your filters, you’re not only increasing the efficiency of your unit, but you’re also improving your indoor air quality. Filters trap many of the harmful contaminants and allergens that swarm through our air. When an air filter gets clogged and can no longer circulate the air through, you’re putting stress on your unit and breathing in those harmful pollutants.

    1. Upgrade Your Filtration System

    Most homes are equipped with the standard paper furnace filter. However, high-efficiency filtration systems can catch up to 90% more pollutants. American Air offers several different air cleaners and filters to help you maintain clean indoor air quality. Those options include:

    • Mechanical Air Cleaners
    • Electronic Air Cleaners
    • Electrostatic Filters
    • V. Lights
    • System Enhancements
    1. Inspect Your Air Ducts

    Your air ducts are responsible for distributing hot and cool air throughout your home, providing a comfortable and even temperature in every room. However, overtime they will collect dust, dander, and possibly even mold. In fact, some duct systems contain up to 4 inches of harmful pollutants and allergens. This can greatly reduce your indoor air quality. Make sure to inspect your air ducts and schedule a duct cleaning with the pros at American Air.

    1. Keep Your Humidity At Healthy Levels

    Mold thrives in moist climates. In order to keep allergens under control, you want to keep your humidity at a healthy level between 30-50%. By doing this, you’re reducing your chances of poor indoor air quality. Another way you can control the moisture in your home is to make sure you open windows and doors when cooking, bathing, or running the dishwasher.
