4 Effective Tips To Improve Indoor Air Quality

4 Effective Tips To Improve Indoor Air Quality

Residential Heating and AC

While we all dream of sunny days at the beach, we can also try to enjoy the time we spend indoors a bit more. To do so, there are some aspects that we should always look after. We at Residential Heating & Air Conditioning want to talk about one of the most important ones: Air Quality. Not only will good air quality improve your health in the long run, it will also make you perform more efficiently at work. Whether you already have it at work or if you need an Air Conditioner installation service in Minneapolis, MN, there are still some other tips we’d like to give you today, to make your air as good and clean as the tropical breeze we all long for.

Look down before looking up

You read that right. Keeping an eye on the floor will actually have an impact on the air you breath on a daily basis. Cleaning products and other chemicals can accumulate in the office or at home for years without you noticing. That’s why it’s important to mop the floor thoroughly to avoid chemical residuals building up and then going into your lungs. Right after vacuuming the ground you can run the mop with water only. Clean it properly afterward and leave a mat at the door to stop allergens and other particles from being dragged in by visitors or colleagues.

Watch the humidity levels

A humid environment is normally the first ingredient in a recipe for a delicious dish of mold and dust mites. We recommend keeping the levels between 35% – 50%. Now that spring is finally here, a good Air Conditioner will definitely come in handy to reduce the pollen in the environment. During summer, it will help to dry out the air enough to a comfortable level. When winter arrives, you can also get a dehumidifier that will do the job without affecting the temperature in the room.

Residential Heating and AC

Don’t smoke inside

Pretty obvious tip, but some forget how big the impact of smoke in a closed space can be. If you can’t go through the day without a cigarette, or if your levels of stress “demand” some nicotine, make sure you take it outside and close the door. If you have a balcony you can close the door behind you, and if you don’t have one, maybe going downstairs for a smoke might become too much of an effort and could help you quit. It’s a win-win situation.

Good smell doesn’t necessarily mean good air

Most air-spray products have unhealthy amounts of toxic chemicals that, though they might make the house smell nice, will end up affecting your lungs long term. Try instead to bring actual nature inside instead of faking its smell. Plants are always a great option, vanilla sticks will not only give a cozy feeling, it will also make you feel like it’s baking time, and who doesn’t love cake?
