A Breath of Fresh Air

Improve your indoor air quality

There are few things as important as the air you breathe. While most people know that there are potentially high levels of pollutants outside, many homeowners don’t realize that contaminants invade our indoor air, too. In fact, according to the EPA, indoor pollution has been ranked among the top five environmental health risks.

Why is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Such a Growing Concern?

Your indoor air is polluted each day by emissions from building materials, home furnishings, tobacco smoke, household cleaners, personal care products, radon, pesticides, and outdoor air contaminants that filter in through doors, windows, and vents. And, contrary to years ago, we now spend up to 90% of our time indoors, especially during the frigid Minnesota winter months.

A Simple Way to Reduce Indoor Air Pollution

One of the easiest, yet often the most overlooked ways to improve your air quality and lower your chance of health problems is by installing a new filter in your HVAC unit every two to three months.

Here are a few common problems that homeowners can face when they neglect their home’s air filter:

  • Higher energy bills
  • Maintenance headaches and breakdowns
  • Dirty air bypassing the filter
  • Frozen coils

Changing your air filter is an important task. We’ve compiled a checklist to help you choose the right filter for your home.
