  • 5 Tips to Make Your Indoor Air Quality Better

    March 31, 2020

    Indoor air quality is a concern for many homeowners, as poor air quality can aggravate allergy and respiratory issues for a home’s inhabitants. Indoor air quality has become an even bigger focal point due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, and Crawford Services is here to help with your IAQ concerns. Here are five key tips for improving indoor air quality.

    1. Clean Your AC Filters: Dirt and dust will build up on your air conditioner’s filter over time, and that debris will be blown throughout your home when you run your AC system. Regularly cleaning the filters and having the professionals at Crawford Services inspect your system annually will ensure you have clean, functional filters that aren’t spreading dust and allergens throughout your home.
    2. Clean Your Ductwork: If your home uses ductwork for your HVAC system, duct cleaning is a key step of improving indoor air quality. Dust and allergens build up over time in ductwork and will be pushed out into the home any time you run your HVAC system. If you’re seeing dust build up on your vents or throughout your home, that’s a good sign that you need duct cleaning.
    3. Keep Your House Clean: While the coronavirus outbreak has caused all of us to think about how much we clean our homes, many of us don’t do enough. Cleaning your floors is the biggest priority for indoor air quality, as your shoes track in all kinds of dirt, dust, and allergens that get stirred up and spread throughout the home. A thorough spring cleaning is a great place to start with improving indoor air quality.
    4. Control Your Humidity: Humidity plays a huge role in indoor air quality and home comfort. A humid home is a breeding ground for mold and dust mites that will severely damage indoor air quality. Crawford Services can install a dehumidifier to help prevent these problems. On the other hand, air that is too dry will often cause eye and nasal issues for people in the home. Adding a humidifier to your house will help prevent these problems.
    5. Let Fresh Air In: Opening your windows and letting fresh air into the home is essential to recycling your home’s air and keeping it clean. At night or on days where it’s not too hot, open up the windows and let your home’s air get refreshed. It will make a noticeable difference.
