Easy Ways to Improve Indoor Air Quality
May 2, 2021Back to All Articles
When you are restricted to a stay-home routine due to COVID-19, a few tips to improve the indoor air quality might just be the thing that you need – in order to enjoy a safer quarantine. Keeping the air clean is also necessary if you want to combat an airborne virus which primarily causes respiratory problems.
Step Up your Cleaning Routine
Make sure that you are washing your carpets, area rugs, bedding, and drapes often. Subject them to the hottest (if possible) and longest wash cycles to make sure that they become free of any irritants or germs. Another thing you can do is to declutter your living space as frequently as possible to avoid dust accumulation.
Change Air Filters Regularly
The air filters of your AC might be the key factor behind all of the airborne pollutants in your indoor environment. They collect a lot of dirt and dust, and eventually reduce the capability of your AC to maintain temperature. Change or clean them regularly.
Proper Ventilation Even in the Cold
In the winter, a lack of proper ventilation can cause the collection of stale air indoors, resulting in a very stuffy environment. Despite the cold, make sure to open the windows in regular intervals to make sure that the air is replaced by fresh air from outside. A good HVAC system will warm it up in no time.
Get an Air Purifier
Not all allergens stink. You can’t trust your sense of smell to alert you about many of the irritants, allergens, and microbes in your indoor space. That is why an air purifier can do the job of removing those harmful agents that normally go undetected and later cause problems. It is a great investment to make if you want to avoid ventilation in the winter yet still enjoy clean air.
Trane has designed an air purifying system like no other. Standard air cleaners have filters that are very dense, so they stop the dust by trapping it in a slightly porous filter. The fewer the pores, the more dust it can trap. However, this not only stops the dust and dirt, but it also stops the air from moving as well. So, you may not be as comfortable, and less air is cleaned efficiently. This is called pressure drop. The revolutionary Trane CleanEffects™ Air Cleaner has the lowest pressure drop with the highest efficiency possible.
