Ways to Improve Air Quality in Your Home
If you’re concerned about the quality of your indoor air, there are several things you can do to try and clean it up a bit on your own. Here are some suggestions to help you take the quality of your indoor air into your own hands.
Open the Windows
While this may seem incredibly obvious, opening the windows in your home can do wonders for your indoor air quality. Some people feel hesitant to do this during the chillier months, but it’s important to do it then too, even if it’s only for a couple of minutes a day. Opening the windows allows the air to circulate, releases the stagnant air, and even clears out some of the toxins.
While it may be great to have excellent insulation that keeps your home warm during the colder months, top-notch insulation may not be so great for your airflow. So open those windows up to help it get circulating again.
Invest in an Air Purifier
This also may sound super obvious, but if you want to purify your air…you can invest in an air purifier. If you suffer from allergies, or if you live with someone who does, then an air purifier can be a godsend. Not only that, but it can help remove ordinary dust and other particles in the air that can irritate you even if you don’t suffer from chronic allergy flare-ups.
Invest in a Dehumidifier
If you have a room in your home that’s particularly damp, like your bathroom, crawlspace, or basement, then you may want to invest in a dehumidifier as well. A dehumidifier will help dry out the room and reduce the potential for mold and mildew to grow. Mold can cause severe health issues, so you definitely want to get ahead of that before you even have a mold problem, if possible.
Use a Fan While Cooking
While you may have a hood over your stove, it can also help to use an oscillating fan while you cook as well. You may already use a fan in the kitchen during the warmer months to cool things down, but it can also improve your air quality when you use it in the cooler months – especially since you’ll be keeping your windows and doors closed more often.
A fan helps disperse the smoke and grease particles that can otherwise clog up your vents and become pollutants both in the short term and the long term. The more “dirty” air particles you can filter out of your home, the better, which is why you should be able to notice a significant improvement in your air quality after grouping several of these suggestions together.
