indoor air quality

The air that we breathe is vital and thankfully, the beautiful Pacific Northwest has better air quality ranking than other cities in the U.S. cities. If you’re looking for ways to boost your indoor air quality – either in your home or office during the spring when pollen and other allergens are at an all-time high, we’ve listed some helpful tips below.

Tip #1: Maintain your HVAC system.
Did you know that your furnace and air conditioner will pick up debris and dust, even after just normal use? After a while, this can greatly affect the air quality that is being circulated throughout your home. It can also influence how efficient your system operates. Your HVAC system should undergo regular maintenance checks, with routine checks scheduled once a year. Spring is a great time to get your system checked out, before the hot weather of summer arrives and your air conditioner is put to the test to cool your home and office space.

Tip #2: Make sure air filters are replaced.
Part of maintaining your heating and cooling system requires changing air filters on a regular basis. Clean air filters will help reduce the flow of dust, debris, mold, and other allergens. This can make an incredible difference for people that live with asthma allergies during the spring and summer months. In addition, think about installing an air cleaner as well in your space that will limit contaminants in the air.

Tip #3: Make sure your home is ventilated properly.
If you see condensation on your windows on a regular basis, your home probably needs a better ventilation system in place. Our team is happy to come out and assess your ventilation system and give advice on what your options are for creating a home or office space that is ventilated well.
