It’s official: summer is coming to a close. As many of get themselves ready to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the busy autumn season, you might forget to think about a few minor things around your home, like your air quality. We know your air quality isn’t often something you pay attention to since it’s not visibly a problem like mold growth or dust would be, but it is something that may be affecting your health if ignored. So if you are looking to fall into better air quality, these easy tips will help:

Invest in a Good Vacuum

Now is the perfect time to create a regular cleaning schedule. By regularly dusting and vacuuming your home, you can keep that debris and allergens from circulating through the air. When they do, they lower your air quality and increase your chances of allergy and asthma symptoms. Also, if you don’t already have one, you’ll want to look into a vacuum without HEPA filters, which is said to trap over 90 percent of dust particles and allergens.

Change Your Filters Often

Your HVAC filters are there to ensure your air is clean and allergen-free, and when you ignore to change them, they can get bogged down with dirt and debris. When this occurs, those particles are spread throughout the air, lowering your air quality. Not only that, but they also put extra pressure on your system, leading to higher energy bills.

Consider an Air Purifier

Though your filters remove allergens and dust from the air, the air purifiers go a step further by eliminating mold, bacteria, and viruses that might be circulating throughout your HVAC system. With the flu season right around the corner, investing in an air purifier now can be a wise choice for many families and homeowners.
