How to Improve Air Quality in Your Home

The air quality inside your home has a direct effect on your physical and mental health, more
than most people may realize. Hawk Plumbing offers a full range of heating, plumbing, and air
conditioning services to help you keep your home as healthy and comfortable as possible, but we
want Fort Worth residents to know a few tips for keeping air quality at optimal levels beyond an
air conditioning system repair.

Check Your Filters

Your homes heating system likely uses replaceable filters of some kind. Be sure to check these
filters regularly and replace them as necessary. You may find that some filters are more
expensive but offer better filtration. Ultimately, you need to find filters that offer a reliable level
of air filtration at a reasonable price. Investing in air quality in your home is never a bad
decision, so springing for top-quality filters is a wise choice.

Improve Ventilation

The air flow in your home may be allowing particles like dust, allergens, pollen, and pet dander
to recirculate. Your windows play an important role in the air quality of your property so take
time to ensure your home has proper air flow. Opening windows during nice weather and using
fans instead of an air conditioning unit can not only cost much less to keep your home cool, but
also improve the overall air quality. However, opening windows also means potentially allowing
more particles to enter the home. Your air filtration system may need to work harder, so consider
the air quality and particle density of the air in your area before leaving windows open for too
long.

Upgrade Your Air Conditioning System

If you have an old or outdated air conditioning system, it may be working much harder than it
should to keep your home at a reasonable temperature. Your defunct air conditioning may also
be failing to filter out harmful particles from the air in your home. An overhaul of your home’s
air conditioning system may be an expensive investment, but it is well worth it in the long run as
it will mean better air quality and less energy consumption since it can function more efficiently.
