As we get further into winter, you’re obviously going to make staying warm one of your top priorities. However, you also need to be paying attention to your indoor air quality. Poor indoor air quality can have a serious negative effect on both your health and comfort. If you want to improve your quality of life as much as possible this winter, you need to start by improving your indoor air quality. Here are some tips on how to keep your indoor air quality high this winter.
Install an Air Purifier
The biggest factor in poor indoor air quality is a high concentration of microscopic airborne contaminants. Some of these contaminants include dust, pollen, dander, germs, and mold spores. Prolonged exposure to these contaminants can cause a wide range of health issues, from allergy attacks, to the flu, to asthma. The best way to deal with this is to install a whole-house air purifier. Air purifiers use a number of different methods to remove contaminants from your air supply. Ionization purifiers use ion clouds to draw contaminants out of air circulation. Air filters use closely woven fibers to snare contaminants that come into contact with them. UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to kill off bio-infectious organisms like viruses and mold spores. Talk to a professional about which air purifier would suit your needs best.
Contaminants tend to build up in the ducts of the home, mainly because they are not cleaned all that often. When you turn on your heater, these large dosages of contaminants will then be circulated around the house. Duct cleaning removes these contaminants, as well as ensuring a better air circulation for your climate control systems.
