Roger the Plumber is a leader in sustainable plumbing, HVAC maintenance, and whole home water filtration services serving the Kansas City, KS area.
“We know that indoor air quality can be the worst during the Spring and Summer because there is so much extra pollen in the air,” comments Jeremy Prevost, Roger the Plumber CEO.
Prevost continues, “Indoor air quality is a huge contributing factor to overall health, considering how much time we all spend inside. We hope the following tips help homeowners improve their indoor air quality, to ensure comfort at home.”
Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality from Roger the Plumber:
- Change the Air Filter Regularly: Roger the Plumber recommends changing the air filter at least every 90 days. The filter traps air pollutants like dust, dirt, mold, bacteria, and pollen. A dirty filter can even contribute to an HVAC unit failure.
- Keep Air Ducts Clean: dirty air ducts negatively impact indoor air quality and can affect the lifespan of the HVAC unit. Call Roger the Plumber to schedule a professional duct cleaning, it is recommended to do this at least every 5 years.
- Invest in a Humidifier: a humidification system helps combat mold and mildew growth in the home. If the home’s air is too dry or too moist, residents may experience allergy-like symptoms. Contact Roger the Plumber immediately upon suspecting major mold or mildew damage.
- Plants are a Natural Filter: houseplants are an easy and aesthetically pleasing way to improve indoor air quality. Indoor houseplants can help remove toxins from the air.
“In addition to the tips we highlighted, Roger the Plumber also recommends scheduling an annual air conditioning tune-up to ensure the home’s unit is running efficiently,” finishes Prevost.
