While your air conditioning system is cycling your indoor air, it’s filtering out some common air pollutants.
Eventually, your a/c filters fill up and stop doing their job.
Not only does that cause trouble for your indoor air quality, it also wears down your A/C system, which can lead to costly repairs down the road.
Filters can help ensure that dust and other airborne irritants get trapped instead of being recirculated throughout your home.
So, be sure to change your AC filters regularly, or get an air conditioning service plan, especially if you are allergy-prone.
Also consider having your ducts cleaned to remove trapped dust.
Air ducts are responsible for distributing hot and cold air throughout your home, providing a comfortable climate in every room.
But ducts that are not installed properly or maintained can distribute contaminants from one room to another.
Over time, dust, dander and even mold can accumulate in your ducts, reducing the overall air quality.

Regularly cleaning bedding, drapes, and other items that tend to attract allergens—particularly if you have pets.
The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology recommends washing in water that is at least 130° F.
Also consider using dust mite–proof covers on pillows, as well as mattresses and box springs, whenever possible.
Based on studies from Harvard.
A clean home is less likely to contain dust and other particles that can lower air quality and irritate allergies.
But cleaning with the right products is key.
Where possible use completely natural cleaning products such as lemon and vinegar that leave no toxic footprint behind.
Industrial cleaners can leave a residue of that will affect air quality.
