The humidity that lurks in the Mind-Atlantic in mid-August is very real. It can be tempting to keep the air conditioning unit on in your home continuously. That is what most homeowners rely on in the middle of summer. However, it is necessary that homeowners examine the health of their air system before letting it run all summer. By now, homeowners have had their air conditioning units on for a while. But how many have inspected their systems this summer? If you are running your air conditioner, please make sure that the air filter is still clean. You would benefit from changing it if needed and also checking to ensure that all the systems in your home relating to your air conditioning unit are running smoothly and efficiently. Here are some additional tips you can use today to improve your home’s air quality.
Keep Pollution Levels Low
You may be wondering how you are supposed to ensure that you are keeping your pollution levels low. It can be downright complicated to do your part to reduce your carbon footprint. However, there are little things we can all do daily that can have a significant impact on our environment as a whole. Ideally, never smoke in the house and make sure you keep cooking to a minimum. Steer clear of any burning wood, stoves or candles if you can. While cleaning your home is essential, try and save vacuuming — which stirs up dust and particles settled in carpets — for when the air outside is less intense and cleaner. Once you can open your windows again, then you can also start vacuuming — it’s a great rule of thumb to live by to ensure you are doing your part to help the environment and keep your home safe and clean during the hazy summer months.
When Things Start To Turn Around
There is light at the end of this dark and humid tunnel. Once the summer is settling down, and the air finally starts to begin to improve, it can be an excellent idea to have the air conditioning and HVAC in the home to get a little love, care, and much-needed maintenance. Having a professional examine the health of your HVAC systems after a brutal season is the best way to ensure you are prepared for the next harsh season — which in Maryland just so happens to be winter.
