Air Supply Heating and Air Conditioning would like to share some options to help you avoid the winter suffering of poor indoor air.
How Can You Improve Indoor Air Quality

Instead of merely capturing the airborne particles, the odors, germs, bacteria, toxic gases, and viruses are removed by using low-voltage UV light.
2) Periodic Cleaning HVAC Registers and Vents. Your HVAC system blows through the vents that will inevitably get dusty as all the air vents collect the filth. With a flexible duster and wand attachment on your vacuum will make this an easy and efficient task to remove the excessive amount of dust blowing through your home.

Make sure the ceiling fan’s blades turn clockwise to create an updraft by reversing your ceiling fan’s direction. Without sacrificing comfort, you can set the thermostat a couple degrees lower to help circulate the warm air throughout the room while the ceiling fan circulate warm air throughout the room.
