Breathe Easy This Summer: How to Improve Your Home’s Indoor Air Quality

As the warm days of summer approach, maintaining the air quality inside your home becomes crucial not only for comfort but also for health. At PLI Builders, we understand the importance of a clean, fresh indoor environment, and we’re here to help you achieve just that. Here’s how you can improve your home’s indoor air quality to ensure you and your family breathe easier all summer long.

Regular HVAC Maintenance One of the simplest yet most effective ways to enhance indoor air quality is by keeping your HVAC system well-maintained. This includes regular cleaning or replacing of filters, which can trap dust, pollen, and other airborne particles. Consider scheduling a pre-summer HVAC tune-up to ensure your system is running efficiently and cleanly.

Install Air Purifiers Air purifiers are another excellent way to improve the air quality in your home. They are especially useful in rooms where you spend a lot of time, such as bedrooms and living areas. Look for purifiers with HEPA filters, which are highly effective at capturing microscopic particles.

Use of Dehumidifiers High humidity levels can lead to the growth of mold and mildew, which can worsen indoor air quality. Using a dehumidifier in damp areas of your home, like basements and bathrooms, can help keep the air dry and reduce potential allergens.

Incorporate Indoor Plants Indoor plants not only enhance the aesthetic of your home but also improve air quality. Plants like spider plants, peace lilies, and Boston ferns are known for their air-purifying abilities, helping to remove pollutants from the air naturally.

Ensure Proper Ventilation Proper ventilation is crucial, especially during the summer when homes tend to be closed up with air conditioning running. Ensure that your home is well-ventilated by using exhaust fans in the kitchen and bathroom and opening windows when the weather allows.

Seal and Insulate Properly Ensuring that your home is properly sealed and insulated can prevent outdoor pollutants and allergens from entering. This can also help your air conditioning system run more efficiently, keeping your indoor air clean and fresh.
