It is that time of year; cold season. I don’t mean a head cold, it is just plain cold outside. This means more people are spending their time inside and the indoor air quality of your home is most likely not great. Keeping the indoor air quality in your home good is always a challenge in the winter. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about ways you can improve the indoor air quality in your home this winter.
Ideal Indoor Humidity in Your House
It is important for your home to have a certain amount of humidity in the indoor air. This will keep you healthier during the winter. You should be sure you aren’t adding too much humidity to the air which puts you at risk of mold, but enough humidity that your hair, skin, nails, and mucus membranes.
Keep Air Filters Changed & Clean
If the filters in your home aren’t changed frequently, you are doing yourself a disservice. Without clean air filters, the air you breathe won’t be clean either. They should be changed monthly and you should be using a quality filter that will actually remove dust and allergens from the air.
Decorate with Live Houseplants
There are several live plants that actually act as filter to the air in your home. You should look for these plants to help purify the air you breathe:
• Boston Fern
• Peace Lily
• Aloe Vera
• Snake Plant
• Spider Plant
Live plants don’t only remove toxins from the air you breathe, but they add oxygen to your home as well.
Purify Indoor Air & Clean Indoor Air Pollution
With the help of professionals, you can have the air in your home purified. This will remove dust mites, mold, pet dander and more from the air in your home. You will notice a decrease in allergy symptoms if you are an allergy sufferer.
Open the Windows as Much as Possible
Even though it is cold outside, the best thing you can do for the air quality in your home is to open the windows. You don’t have to open them for long periods of time, but for fifteen or so minutes a day to help move the old air out and new air in.
Schedule Air Duct Cleaning
If you think about all the air that is pushed in and out of the air ducts in your home, it is no wonder you should have them cleaned. Dirt and debris accumulate in them, and in turn, are blown around your home as the heat kicks on in the winter. Having your ductwork professionally cleaned can help improve the indoor air quality in your home.
