Improving the Air Quality in Your Home

The change in seasons means there is a lot to consider in keeping your Arlington, Virginia, home effectively air conditioned. Instead of worrying about heat and humidity, you will need to make sure that you are using your thermostat wisely to manage the cooler temperatures and drier air. Another important consideration is the indoor air quality, and its link to allergies. Fall can bring a lot of concern for allergy sufferers. It is therefore especially important to make sure your indoor air quality is as clean as possible.

Check Your Ventilation System

When setting out to improve the air quality in your home, your air conditioner will need to be as clean as possible. Dirt and debris, along with germs and other allergens, have a way of building up in the ducts of your system and reducing the air quality. Engaging in regular cleaning and maintenance will correct this common problem and significantly improve your IAQ.

Install High-Quality Air Filters

The air filters in most home air conditioning systems will do an effective job of keeping the air clean. However, if you truly want to maximize your home’s air quality, you should consider installing high-quality filters with an appropriate MERV (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) rating. Filters with a higher rating will catch particles missed by traditional air filters, allowing you to breathe easier when at home. We will help you to select the right filter for your system.

Consider a Whole-Home Filtration System

Another way to keep your home’s air clean is to set up a whole-home filtration system with the help of an HVAC expert. By installing air filters with high MERV ratings, you’ll keep your HVAC system in good health while reducing or even eliminating dirt, debris, and allergens.

When allergy season is at its peak, improving your home’s IAQ can feel like an uphill battle, but it is actually very simple when you partner with the air quality experts at Brennan’s Heating & Air Conditioning. We will provide expert advice, so you find the best way to increase the air quality in your Northern Virginia home. Contact a representative right away at 703-783-0145.
