4 Ways to Prevent Poor Indoor Air Quality During Spring and Summer

Although there are pollutants in the air at all times throughout the year, it’s extremely important to protect yourself during the spring and summer when allergens abound. If you think your home is protected from the pollutants that are outdoors just because you have walls, think again. And considering the average American spends 90 percent of his or her life indoors, it behooves everyone to take more caution and consider improving their home’s air quality.
Here are four ways to prevent poor indoor air quality during the hot seasons when it matters most.

Buy Houseplants

Not only do they add visual appeal to any room in your home, but houseplants also help clean the air inside of it. During the late 1980s, the Associated Landscape Contractors of America and NASA studied houseplants in order to purify the air used in various space facilities. They found that several plants could filter out common volatile organic compounds, helping improve the quality of the surrounding air. Among the 15 houseplants that provide air quality benefits are Aloe, Spider plant, and Gerber daisy. No matter what color or type you’re looking for, there’s a plant to match your style of home decor.

Change Your Air Filter Frequently

The spring and summer seasons are hot and humid in Louisiana, meaning your HVAC system has to operate extra hard to pump out clean air. To ensure your family is breathing the cleanest air possible, remember to change your HVAC system’s air filter every month between March and September. This will help keep dirty particles and pollutants from clogging your system, helping you avoid the health and financial ramifications that could arise if you ignore this responsibility.

Invest in an Air Purifier

Recent studies show that air purifiers significantly reduce the harmful pollutants that contaminate your home’s air and your family’s respiratory systems. If you want to avoid developing a respiratory illness, cold, asthma, or allergy irritation, consider purchasing a quality air purifier from a reputable dealer.

Lee’s Air Conditioning offers many models of air purifiers, including the award-winning Infinity Air Purifier. This model traps up to 95 percent of pathogens down to .30 micron in size. It then uses an electrical charge to kill them, proving its effectiveness against 13 pollutants such as pollen, smoke, animal dander, and bacteria.

Schedule a Service

Although you can take many preventative measures to ensure your home’s air quality is top-notch, it never hurts to call a professional who can inform you about the possible dangers lurking and how to get rid of them. A professional will assess your home’s air quality needs and provide you with a solid plan so your family is breathing fresh and clean air throughout the spring and summer.
