What Makes a House a Healthy Home?
You spend a lot of time and energy in your home, so you’ll want to make sure it’s set up to support your health. All systems need to work properly — and in harmony — for your home to thrive.
So, what can you do to improve your system functions, the state of your structure, and the health of everyone inside? Here’s a breakdown of what it takes to make and maintain a healthy home, and how Haller can help at each step of the way.

Easy DIY for Better Home Health
A healthy home can help prevent illness and disease, which makes it a worthwhile goal. There’s no single path to home health — a number of elements come together to improve the quality of your indoor living space.
Wondering where to begin? Well, you can start building a healthy home routine with some simple guidelines: not wearing shoes inside your home, keeping windows and doors open to promote ventilation (when the weather is nice), and cleaning regularly, paying special attention to surfaces that can gather dirt and debris.
It’s also wise to avoid harsh chemicals, including air fresheners and sprays (they can contain volatile organic compounds, or VOCs) and use exhaust fans to move out pollutants, especially in kitchens and bathrooms.
Regular maintenance makes a difference
Keeping your systems clean, running efficiently, and working together is something you can do yourself (with a bit of professional help, from time to time).
Aside from addressing efficiency issues right away and testing your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors regularly, there are a few general guidelines when it comes to system upkeep, like:
- Change your HVAC system filters at least twice a year
- Have your air ducts cleaned every year (consider upgrading if they’re very old)
- Get annual HVAC, plumbing, and electrical tuneups
- Have a pro inspect your water supply system regularly
