The air in your home should always be in the best quality. Having the air easy to breath can help improve your health and happiness when you are in your home. While the temperature is getting cooler out, you will open your windows less and less. That means the amount of fresh air can decrease significantly. To help improve the air quality, there are several things you can do. The first thing is to make sure your HVAC system is working properly. You will want to contact us so we can inspect it and look for any issues it might have. Always make sure to contact us if there is an issue you notice. Catching a problem at the first sign can help prevent more serious issues as well.
Inspect the System
The system should be inspected. More often, the filter of the HVAC system will need to be inspected. The filter will collect any dust, pollutants, or dander that are in the air of the home. This will then help prevent it from redistributing throughout the home further. If you have pets or someone smokes in your home, the filter will need to be changed more often. Pet fur and dander can get into the air, and cause breathing issues from those who may be allergic to it. Keeping the furnace clean and replaced will help improve the air quality.
You may also want to look into a humidifier for your home. As the air gets cooler, it also becomes dry. This can lead to several issues in your home. You may notice an increase in static electricity and shocks. When a humidifier is operating, it will release humidity into the air to reduce the amount of static. The humidifier can also help make it easier to breathe. This will also help reduce the chance for bloody noses, chapped lips, or dry skin. With proper humidity levels, you will feel better as well.
