Tips to Improve Air Quality During National Wellness Month

nsplash

All during August is National Wellness Month which focuses on promoting self-care, managing stress, and creating an all-around healthier lifestyle for you. Most people will create better eating habits or finally get around to sticking with an exercise routine, but something that we never think of is the air quality of our home.

It is crucial that we consider this when taking care of ourselves, our family and our pets. Luckily, there are things you can do to improve now, and this article will help you get a handle on your home.

Understanding Your HVAC System

nsplashFiberglass filters are the most affordable, disposable and common of the types. Being the lowest straining of the types if you have one you still may experience respiratory problems.

  • Pleated filters can be made of cotton or polyester folds, they work really well in filtering out dust and pollutants. Choose the filters with more pleats for better quality.
  • Washable filters may cost you more upfront than disposable ones, but they can save you money in the long run as you don’t have to buy new ones as often. Be sure to properly wash them and let them dry completely otherwise you could gain mold and bacteria build-up.
  • Electrostatic filters work like a magnet to keep pollutants and dust from circulating in your home. Some types of these filters may be washable and some may not.
  • HEPA filters (high-efficiency particulate air filters) are recommended by the US Department of Energy since they filter out 99.97% of pollutants and are the best type of air filters for those prone to respiratory problems or allergies
  • Get Your Home Ready for Back to School

    nsplashDon’t forget that also in August our kids go back to school and come in contact with hundreds of other people.

    Be sure to prepare your home from all the new bacteria and diseases they will bring home in each daily routine. Now is the time more than ever to check your HVAC systems.

    Without them, running properly our daily lives could be at risk. It is recommended that you get your HVAC system checked twice a year and you change your filters every month in the summer.
