also combat icky room odors. Grind them, brew them or bake them in the oven to
neutralize odors and fill your space with your favorite coffee shop smell.

like a bakery mixed with the holidays, give this natural air freshener a try.

Turn your bath into a spa with Eucalyptus
Try hanging a few sprigs of
eucalyptus in the corner of your shower for an authentic spa smell. The steam
from your shower will release the scent from the branches and fill the room
with its relaxing scent.
Changing out your filters regularly allows your system the refresh it deserves for working hard. Odor build-up is created in your air filters over time from removing dust and particles from the air and not changing them regularly can fill your home with a funky smell. Once changed, your filter can do a great job of catching more air contaminants and your home will smell great again.
Having your air ducts cleaned and your system tuned-up will ensure your system is in good shape to circulate clean air and make your home smell like the oasis you deserve. If you would like to know more about general maintenance, contact a local HVAC company like MoreVent.
