Your home air filter is perhaps one of the most important parts of your HVAC system. So many of the issues that could cause your system to slow down or stop working entirely can be attributed, at least partially, to an old or clogged up air filter, so regularly changing your filter is an important part of home maintenance. However, once you change your air filter, your old furnace air filter may release dirt and debris back into the air in your home, which could lessen your indoor air quality.
This brings up a question that many people want to know the answer to: how should you properly dispose of an old air filter? Air filters have the benefit of being disposable in your regular trash, but what can you do to prevent all of the airborne debris trapped in the filter from escaping again as soon as you move it? Here are a few disposal tips you can follow.
Wildfires are devastating for the environment in so many ways. In addition to burning natural vegetation, wildfires also release a ton of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, further exacerbating greenhouse gas issues for our environment. Likewise, they also greatly reduce our air quality, making the simple act of breathing difficult for just about anyone, and particularly unsafe for those who suffer from respiratory issues. What that means is it’s important to take refuge inside, where air quality can be under control. But how can you keep your indoor air quality at a high level when the air quality outside is so poor?
This blog has the answer for you. Check out these four tips for keeping your indoor air quality healthier during wildfire season so that you can breathe easier in your home while the air outside is full harmful impurities.
