- Replace all air filters in your HVAC system frequently. The filter on your AC unit catches impurities that are circulating in the air so it is very important that you swap them out frequently. Recommendations for frequency are generally every 3 – 6 months however during this time frame you may want to consider swapping them out monthly. Set reminders on your phone to prompt you to change your air filter at regular intervals, it is an easy thing to overlook when it is busy!
- Change your fan setting from AUTO to ON to keep the air circulating in your home.
- As we get some nice weather, consider opening your doors and windows to let some fresh air inside. This will allow the air to circulate throughout the house and any impurities that have settled to go through the filter system.
- Consider adding a UV Light to your AC System. A UV light purifies the air in your home by preventing the growth of mold, mildew, bacteria and viruses as they pass by the light in your air conditioning ducts. UV lights have been shown to reduce the concentration of airborne microorganisms by as much as 50%!
