How Can I Improve My Home’s Air Quality This Winter?

What’s more important than indoor air quality?

It’s almost winter, which means it’s the perfect time to start thinking about our indoor air quality. When we close ourselves up inside where it’s warm, we’re also locking in a bunch of pollutants that can cause our air quality to be less than desirable. This can result in poor health, respiratory issues, and general discomfort. How can we improve the indoor air quality in our homes this winter?

Consider these options to get your indoor air quality where you want it to be:

A Good Humidifier

The best way to compensate for the lower humidity levels of winter is with a humidifier. The bonus is that you will also improve your air quality with a fan powered-humidifier. It will help circulate the air and keep the relative humidity level in your home where it should be, between 40 and 60%. Bacteria and viruses can’t thrive in that humidity level which will also work to improve your air quality.

Air Filtration Systems

An air filtration system works to filter out the pollutants that make their way into your home. Everything from dust and dust mites to pollen, pet dander, and mold and mildew can be caught and trapped by air filtration systems. Removing these from the air can reduce your chances of respiratory irritation and even reduce the chance for asthma.

Change the Filter

This seems simple enough, but it’s something that can be easily missed. Change the filter on your heating system regularly to prevent dust buildup. A clean filter is an effective filter. It’s one of your first and best defenses against air pollutants in your house.

It’s important to pay attention to the air you breathe in your home. During the winter months when we close up our houses to keep them warm is the time to take action. For the right system for your home to improve your indoor air quality, contact the team at All City Heat and Air.

The technician let me know what needed to be done, and we agreed what the cost would be. When he finished the work, he phoned back and told me he was able to use a less expensive freon and was able to adjust the bill. Very pleased with the work and will use them at another home I own.
