5 Ways to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality


The majority of people around the world are spending more time indoors right now than ever before. However, did you know that the air inside your home can be just as polluted as the outdoor air? Even though you don’t visibly see it, dust, pet dander and airborne viruses and bacteria recirculate through your home causing indoor air pollution. (Carrier Residential)

As you spend more time inside due to COVID-19 we thought we’d share some quick tips to improve the air quality in your home. 

  1. Keep your windows open when you can. This helps to prevent locking pollutants into a room (when air purifiers aren’t running). If possible, create a cross draft by opening windows on both sides of the room to keep air moving effectively.
  2. Vacuum often. Choose a vacuum with a HEPA filter that’s better at trapping dust instead of sending it flying back into the air.
  3. Install high-quality air filters and change them often. Not only does a high-quality air filter help to trap and prevent pollutants from recirculating through your home, changing the filter on a regular basis helps to maintain the effectiveness of your HVAC system.
  4. Minimize pollutant sources in your home by cutting down on your use of candles or using exhaust fans in your kitchen, bathroom(s), or laundry room.
  5. Install an effective whole-home air purifier. We particularly love the iWave Indoor Air Purifier. The iWave uses patented technology so that when air passes over the iWave, ions produced by the device reduce pathogens, allergens, particles, smoke, and odors in the air, creating a healthier environment without any harmful byproducts (iWave).
