Have you been giving a lot of thought to your indoor air quality? Probably not. You’re probably more preoccupied with planning your holiday parties. But the two actually go together. It’s important to keep your house the right temperature while also making sure you and your guests are breathing clean air. Here are two tips for doing both:
Tip #1: Change the Air Filter
One of the easiest ways to improve your indoor air quality is by making sure your air filter is clean. They work to trap airborne dust and dirt before it goes into your heating system and then circulated through your house. A clean air filter is also going to make your heating system function more effectively, keeping your home a more consistent temperature for your guests.
Tip #2: Consider a Humidifier
The winter months are cool and dry, the perfect environment for cold and flu viruses to thrive. Adding a humidifier can cut down on the bacteria and pollutants in the air making it less likely you or your guests will get sick. Humid air also feels warmer than dry air, so you’ll be able to make your house feel warm and comfortable without cranking the heat.
