Breathing poor quality air isn’t healthy, leading to allergic reactions such as sinus congestion or chronic coughing. There are several easy things that you can do to improve the air quality in your home.

1. Add houseplants

Visit your favorite gardening store to find the best houseplants for cleaning the air in your home. (Or read this helpful blog.)

2. Do a deep clean of your home

It is important to clean your home frequently to remove household dust from carpets and other surfaces. If your home has an odor, then you should clean it thoroughly, including washing the walls, floors and ceilings.

3. Open the windows

While you may use climate control most of the time, when it is a nice day, you should open the windows. Fresh air helps eliminate odors and improves air quality. Try to open the windows in your home at least once a week.

4. Change your air filter

It is important to change the air filters in a furnace or an air conditioner several times a year, maybe once a month if you have pets. Also, consider replacing your filter with high-efficiency air filters to capture smaller particles.

5. Get an air purifier

If you want to have the cleanest air in your home, then you should have an air purification system. The best air purification equipment is attached to your home’s HVAC system to neutralize pollutants as they pass through your vents.
