Get Ready for Spring: Steps to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

Spring doesn’t just bring sunny days and higher pollen counts: indoor air quality is notorious for taking a nosedive during this season. And when air quality drops, allergies flare up and your life can become miserable.

Fortunately, there are several steps you can take to improve your Cook or Lake County home’s air quality and get ready for the spring. Follow through with these actions and you’ll increase the air quality in your home, reduce your susceptibility to allergies, and enjoy a more comfortable abode as a result.

Clean Your Home Regularly

We know it’s more difficult to find motivation as the colder months are only just in your rearview, but cleaning your home is something you should avoid falling behind on. Homes accumulate dust, pollen and other allergens at an astounding rate, and these allergens can bring your home’s air quality down if they’re allowed to stick around. Make cleaning a priority.

Run a Humidifier

Even though we’re headed into spring, you’ll find that there are lingering effects from the cold winter air, which can dry out the most humid of homes. This makes it useful to have a humidifier around to add a little moisture to the air during those days before you’ve fully transitioned into Spring. Not only will you notice a humidifier’s effects in the condition of your skin, your home will also feel more comfortable as a result.

Change Your HVAC System’s Air Filter

Your air filter works hard to trap dirt and debris, keeping it not only from spreading around your home, but also from causing issues with your HVAC system. But what happens when your air filter becomes too dirty to be useful? The dirt and allergens trapped by the filter eventually do spread around your home, leading to increased chances of illness, allergy attacks and fatigue. By checking your air filter regularly and changing it every 1 to 3 months, you can keep your home’s air quality in tip top condition. Not only that: you’ll lower your power bill because your HVAC system won’t have to work as hard.
