Today, the importance of changing air filters in home air conditioning systems has never been emphasized more. As millions of people practice social distancing and staying in the comfort and safety of their homes in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, maintaining good indoor air quality should be at the top of everybody’s priority list.
Not knowing what the future holds can make this a stressful time, and the fact that there are many things that are simply out of your control for the time being makes it even more so. Luckily, following these simple guidelines from our experts at All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning can help you maintain or improve your indoor air quality and give you one less thing to worry about during the pandemic..
It goes without saying that smoking indoors is a big no-no, but cigarettes aren’t the only source of smoke in the home. Without proper ventilation and maintenance, stoves and furnaces can also be detrimental to your indoor air quality. Make a furnace inspection checklist to keep your heating system in good shape even when it’s not heating season. Lessening smoke and other particulate contaminants in your home can help keep your respiratory system strong, something that’s important now more than ever.
Some products like hair and body sprays actually increase particulate matter in the air inside your home. While these things aren’t extremely harmful, our experts advise moderating their use while staying at home. While it’s nice to be able to style your hair and smell good even if you’re staying indoors, don’t forget to keep spray use to a minimum. This should also include the use of air fresheners.
You can lessen the occurrence of seasonal allergies with the correct use of HVAC filters and screens. Changing filters regularly is an essential part of any good HVAC maintenance routine. Most experts agree that filters must be changed at least once every 30 days, though some systems can go as long as three months in between changes. Staving off allergies and other conditions can help keep you and your family safe and healthy during this time.
