1.) HVAC Filters:
- When you head to the store, look on the filter packaging for the one that says “healthy living filter” and has a microparticle rating of 1500 or above to capture at least 90 percent of large particles such as pollen and mold spores from the air passing through the filter. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recommends checking your filter monthly and changing it at least every three months.

Finally, check references and be sure the company is certified through a third party certifying agency such as the IICRC or NORMI.
