How To Improve Indoor Air Quality

If you're like most people, you spend the majority of your time indoors. It's important to take steps to improve indoor air quality, because having poor air quality can lead to a number of health problems. Here are a few tips on how to improve indoor air quality:

HVAC Maintenance

One is to make sure your heating and cooling systems are properly maintained. Dust, dirt, and other pollutants can build up in your HVAC system over time, which can release these contaminants into the air when the system is turned on. Regular maintenance can help prevent this from happening.

Quality Air Filters

Another way to improve air quality is to install a good air filter. Air filters can help trap dust, dirt, and other particles in the air, which can help reduce their number in your home. It’s important to choose the right type of filter for your needs, and to replace it regularly to ensure that it stays effective.


If you’re using wood or gas stoves for heating, it’s important to choose fire-safe materials whenever possible, and never leave the stove unattended while in use. It’s also important to avoid burning pine or other strong scented woods because they release harmful chemicals into the air. If you have an outdoor grill, it’s best to use it in good weather when you can open the windows to allow the smoke to escape.


Use fans to move the air around. Fans help distribute fresh air and also help remove stale air from the room.

There are many other ways to improve indoor air quality, such as avoiding products that contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds), keeping your home clean and clutter-free, and not smoking inside.
