Five Indoor Air Quality Tips

Depending on what heat, humidity or air conditioning systems you use, you may be helping or hindering your allergen control efforts. Here are some tips on how to use these systems to reduce indoor allergens.

  1. Clean Your Heater

    Forced-air heating can blow dust into your home. Make sure to clean the filters regularly to keep dust particles down.

  2. Crank the AC

    Air conditioning actually dehumidifies the air and filters out pollen, which dislikes airflow. Keep it cranked up in the summer months.

  3. Dehumidify

    When it’s too cold out for the AC, use a dehumidifier to keep the air dry. This will help prevent the spread of mold.

  4. Filter The Air

    Use a High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter. This will help to rid your home of dust and other allergens.

  5. Low Tech Tip

    Keep bathroom windows open while showering to let out moist air and help prevent mold and mildew. But keep windows closed in other rooms to help make sure outdoor allergens don’t get in.
