Now that the winter season is here, you won’t want to go outside much due to the bad weather. You’d rather stay indoors, but unfortunately, that indoor air can quickly grow stale. Getting fresh air is essential, so here are some tips on improving your home’s indoor air quality this winter.
Bring The Outdoors Indoors
You may be surprised to learn that adding houseplants can improve indoor air quality. For one thing, bringing plants into your home can help to purify the air. They will absorb the carbon dioxide and produce more oxygen, which will help you focus and think more clearly, primarily if you work from home most of the time. Low-maintenance plants include aloe plants, English ivy, and bamboo palms.
Improve Your Ventilation
The following step will be to improve ventilation and circulation. The greater your ventilation, the better your circulation and, thus, the quality of your indoor air. Ventilation issues are common in older homes, but newer homes are not immune.
Frequently Change Your Air Filters
Changing air filters is one of the most effective methods for improving indoor air quality. Dirty air filters will only worsen your home’s indoor air quality. Clogged air filters will also make your residential HVAC unit work harder, increasing your utility bill.
Implementing Tools Like Humidifiers And Dehumidifiers
Winter’s dry conditions will necessitate the use of humidifiers. You should add some humidity, but not too much. On the other hand, if your home is too humid, mold and mildew can grow, so use dehumidifiers to maintain a balance.
