Tips to Improve your Detroit Home’s Indoor Air Quality

April 9, 2024

Have you spent the first part of spring coughing, sneezing and wheezing?

As a Detroit resident, you’re probably already aware that the area’s unhealthy air quality has continued during the first few months of the year. And with the addition of spring blooms, the pollen and spores probably haven’t done much to improve it.

Recent reports have shown that our air quality gets particularly bad at certain times of the year. This usually happens when weather-related issues cause pollution to stay trapped at near ground level, creating breathing problems for many residents.

That’s why the air quality experts at C & C Heating & Air Conditioning recommend that you follow these tips to improve your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ) during the spring blooming season.

Change the Air Filter

While most air filters remain clean for about three months, during times of greater air pollution, it may be necessary to change them more frequently. Keep an eye on your filter. If it looks dirty or clogged, change it.

Have the AC Tuned Up

April is a great time to schedule a maintenance appointment for your home’s air conditioning unit. Having it properly serviced not only allows your technician to clean it properly, it also gives you time to make needed repairs before it gets too hot.

Spring Clean the Home

Your house has been closed up for most of the winter. That means that there is trapped dust and debris in the nooks and crannies of your home. A thorough cleaning also helps your HVAC unit circulate clean air.

Clean the Ductwork

If your home is more than 15 years old or you don’t remember if your ductwork has ever been cleaned, it may be time to call in an expert. Professional air duct cleaners like C & C can be trusted to give your ducts a thorough cleaning.

Install Air Cleaners

If you have cleaned your home, your HVAC unit and the ductwork and are still concerned with poor air quality, consider adding a whole-home air filtration system, UV lights or a humidification system.

At C & C, we believe that clean air is necessary for a quality life. Our National Air Duct Cleaners Association (NADCA)-certified specialists will thoroughly clean the interior surfaces of your ductwork, fans and blowers.

So, if you’re ready to breathe better this spring, call C & C Heating & Air Conditioning at (586) 439-3319 or contact us online to schedule HVAC maintenance or air duct cleaning.
