Beyond Open Windows and AC Repair: 5 Tips for Good Indoor Air Quality

When the air inside your Toronto home begins to smell weirdly or feel stuffy, there’s more you can do beyond throwing open the windows or cranking on the air conditioner. Here are five other ways you can improve indoor air quality.

Take the time for house plants.

Start with something simple: add two or three house plants to take in carbon dioxide and help purify the air. If no one in your home is allergic to pollen, flowering plants may also serve doubly as an air freshener – as long as you don’t let wilting blooms overstay in your living room, of course.

Check your appliances.

Again, this does not mean simply checking whether it’s time for air conditioner repair. The appliances you might think have little to do with air quality actually have significant impact on it.
