Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality

Now, more than ever, it’s important to monitor your indoor air quality. To help keep contaminants from circulating in your home, consider using a better filter, adding an air purification system and having your home’s ducts cleaned.

High-Quality Filters
A furnace filter can trap everything from pollen to viruses and bacteria. To ensure that you’re catching as many contaminants as possible, use the filter recommended for your heating system in your owner’s manual.

Duct Cleaning
Dust and other irritants can settle in the ductwork and be spread throughout the house every time the furnace or air conditioner is turned on. Having ducts cleaned every once in a while can help improve the quality of air in your home, especially if you have had any renovation work done recently.

Air Purification Systems
Air filtration systems combat indoor air pollution by capturing particles including bacteria and viruses, keeping these contaminants from re-circulating into the home’s air. Air purifiers are whole-home systems that are integrated into your furnace and air conditioner. For people that want to significantly improve indoor air quality, an air purification system is the best option.
