Clean Humidifiers and Air Conditioners Frequently

903Clean your humidifiers and air conditioners in your home often. Dirty filters can cause bacteria and mold to grow; and breathing in that dirt can trigger allergies and asthma. Even if you aren’t prone to those issues, bacteria and mold can bring on flu-like symptoms or even lung infections in otherwise healthy people.*

Clean your air humidifiers and air conditioners according to their manual. If you have central air, consider hiring a professional to rid your ducts and hoses of mold spores. Breathe healthier today!

Change Filters Monthly

You might not think about it, but the air filters in your home are like huge dust rags that collect all the dirt and dust that travel through your home. With an efficient air filter, you should be changing it every month! Having the filter fill up can cause numerous issues such as poor operating efficiency, the efficiency goes down and your costs will increase, and if you suffer from allergies or have other health concerns a dirty filter will only make your health issues worse. Filters take all the dirt away and by not changing it at the proper time will only allow the air in your home to become dirtier. [1]

Set a reminder for yourself! As soon as you change your filters, add it to your calendar to check the status of it a month later.
