Most homes have poor indoor air quality, especially in the winter. Doors and windows are shut, so pollutants stay around instead of escaping outdoors. There are several ways to improve your home’s indoor air quality, though, so you can breathe easier and live a healthier life.
Ventilation improves the air quality in your home. It brings in fresh air and pushes out stagnant, unhealthy air. The easiest way to improve ventilation is to open windows when you can. Take advantage of temperate winter days to clean your home’s air.
Clean Your Home Regularly
Keeping your home clean is key to improving indoor air quality. Vacuum carpets and mop floors once or twice a week. When dusting, start at the top and work your way down. Dust before you vacuum so you can remove pollutants you knocked off surfaces.
Schedule a Heater Tune-Up
Schedule a heater tune-up in the fall before you start using your furnace in the winter. The technician will change the air filter and clean the internal parts of your heater. All the air in your home travels through your furnace, so keeping it clean is essential to indoor air quality.

Use Indoor Air Quality Products
You can have whole-home indoor air quality products installed in your heating system. These include ultraviolet lights, humidifiers and dehumidifiers. You can also buy portable versions of these if you just want to improve the air quality in certain rooms.
Stop Using Chemicals
Household cleaners, especially those with fragrances, often have harmful chemicals. Try using natural products instead, or make your own.
