If you’d really like to significantly improve indoor air quality in your home, it’s important to take a room-by-room approach since some issues are specific to certain areas. Meanwhile, a whole-house strategy will address air quality problems that don’t confine themselves to single rooms.
Improve Indoor Air Quality in the Whole House
First of all, it’s important to keep relative humidity inside your home at a healthy, comfortable level – at least 50 percent in the summer. Running the A/C is the best way to control humidity. Effective ventilation also is imperative for maintaining indoor air quality. Consider a balanced ventilation system to exchange stale indoor air with fresh outside air several times a day. It’s also crucial to make sure you inspect and change your HVAC filter on a regular basis. For especially serious air quality concerns, look for an effective whole-house air-cleaning system.
