The air we breathe while enjoying a trip to the mall, running errands, or spending time in the front yard isn’t always the best. And the same can be said for the air inside our Argyle, Texas homes. In fact, did you know the air in your home may be two to five times more polluted than what you’re breathing outdoors? While that may seem unfathomable, especially when you have a really good AC unit, the reality is that dust, mold, and other pollutants are all around you right now and have diminished your indoor air quality.
What can you do about it? Thankfully, improving your indoor air quality is easier than you think.
6 Tips for Better Indoor Air Quality
1 Use an air purifier — Home purification systems trap and remove contaminants and harmful particles from your home’s air. And not just in one room. They are designed for your entire home — thus providing clean air. Beyond dust, dirt, and pet dander, just a few biological contaminants you might not think are still circulating in your home’s air include allergens, vapors, spores, mold, bacteria, viruses, pet odor, and VOCs. APCO-X home purification is an example of a whole-home air purifier that goes beyond conventional air fresheners, single-room air purifiers, air filters, and other filtration systems in that it can neutralize odors, allergens, germs, VOCs, and more found in the air throughout your home and within your HVAC equipment surfaces.

2. Change your air filters — Air filters remove dust, dirt, pollen, and other particles to keep your home’s air clean and safe. They also ensure critical airflow cycles to and from your air conditioner to keep your home comfortable. Most air filter manufacturers like General Electric, Filtrete, HEPA, and Honeywell, and HVAC companies recommend changing your air filter every three months. But that depends on the size and quality of your air filter.
3. Keep your humidity levels low — As the humidity levels in your house increase, it makes your home the perfect breeding ground for mold and mildew to grow and impact your indoor air quality. If your current AC unit isn’t maintaining proper humidity levels, you’ll want to call one of our AC guys at A&A Air in Lantana. Even if your HVAC system usually works, you may consider using a dehumidifier to reduce excess humidity.
4. Keep your home clean — By keeping your home clean, you reduce the likelihood that dust particles and other contaminants will build up on surfaces, get into the air vents and air ducts throughout your home, and impact the air you breathe.
5. Check your air ducts — To piggyback off the previous tip, dust, mold, spores, and other contaminants can easily get inside your air ducts and impact your indoor air quality. And if you haven’t had your air ducts cleaned in a while, you might be surprised what you find in there. Call one of our professionals at A&A Air today. We are masters at cleaning out air ducts.
6. Schedule preventative maintenance — The secret to ensuring your home’s HVAC system runs efficiently and helps improve your indoor air quality comes down to preventative maintenance. The families who don’t have to worry about indoor air quality are the ones who have their systems professionally inspected, serviced, and cleaned before those peak times of the year become unruly.
