Breathing easily in your home is essential for maintaining good health. Poor indoor air quality can lead to headaches, allergy symptoms, and irritation of your nose, ears, and throat. You can do several things to improve your indoor air quality and create a healthier living environment.

How to Breathe Easier and Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

One of the easy things you can do to help improve your home’s air quality is to keep it clean. Regular vacuuming, dusting, and sweeping will remove dust and other pollutants that can negatively affect your air. While cleaning, you should also look for environmentally friendly cleaning products and avoid harsh chemicals that may affect your home’s air.

Reducing the amount of moisture in your home can also improve your health. If your home has a crawlspace, crawlspace encapsulation may help reduce moisture and improve indoor air quality. However, adding a dehumidifier or two to your home’s basement will also help reduce the moisture.

Another simple thing you can do is replace your home’s air filters regularly. The air filters in your HVAC system only last so long, so replacing them regularly can instantly help circulate cleaner air and make your home healthier. It is recommended to check and replace your air filters once every 30-60 days.

Adding an air purifier to your home is the best way to improve air quality. Air purifiers equipped with HEPA filters can help remove airborne particles, allergens, and pollutants, improving indoor air quality. Certain houseplants can also work as air purifiers to help eliminate pollutants and make the air cleaner.
