As we all know by now, the novel coronavirus can be spread through airborne, virus-containing droplets. According to a study published by the University of Minnesota’s Center of Infectious Disease Research and Policy, the spread of the novel coronavirus "could be suppressed using engineering controls such as effective ventilation, possibly with air filtration and disinfection and avoidance of air recirculation."

However, following that guidance may be a bit harder during the summer months as temperatures spike across the country. If you head indoors to escape the heat, you and your housemates are going to be rebreathing the air inside — including air that’s being recirculated through air conditioners. With the warnings in mind, many homeowners are taking steps to increase ventilation and air quality in their living spaces. While some of the more obvious upgrades fall on the higher end of the budget, we’ve rounded up some great ways to improve your home’s air quality no matter your budget.
