3 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

August 20, 2019 | Blog

Improving the indoor air quality in your Baton Rouge, Louisiana, home doesn’t need to be difficult or expensive. There are several simple things that you can do that’ll improve your air quality and prevent major HVAC problems in your home. Here are three of them:

Schedule Maintenance

If you want to keep your HVAC system working when you need it, you need to be proactive with your maintenance practices. Changing the filter regularly can help, but you need to schedule maintenance by professionals. This will help you avoid costly AC repairs by catching problems early. Plus, you can get help maintaining your HVAC system so that the cleaning and more detailed maintenance work are easier going forward.

Change Filters Regularly

While you may not be able to clean your AC system top to bottom on your own, you should at least change the filter. Most filters are disposable, and you should replace yours regularly. As filters become dirty, they restrict airflow into the system. This means that your filter can’t pull particulates out of the air as well, and you risk blowing dust and dirt into the system that doesn’t stick to the filter. This also means your system is working too hard to pull air through. Change your filter at least once every three months. As a result, you’ll prevent poor indoor air quality.

Ventilate Your Home

If you want to minimize the pollutants in the air, ventilate your home well. Open the windows and doors when you can so that fresh air can flow through. This will displace the stagnant air and help remove many of the pollutants that are trapped inside the house. It’s one of the fastest ways to improve your indoor air quality. Invest in a whole-hole ventilation solution to ventilate your home when you can’t open windows.

Don’t let your air conditioner contribute to poor indoor air quality. Call Southern Air Heating, Cooling & Plumbing at (225) 217-6224 to schedule AC maintenance service.
