Improving your indoor air quality can be easy.
You don’t have to throw up your hands and abandon all hope of improving your indoor air quality during the winter. There are some easy ways to breathe easier without spending a fortune or turning your life upside down. Take a look at these two ideas:
#1: Invest in a Humidifier
Humid air is better for you in the winter, and it can have a big impact on your indoor air quality. First of all, humid air holds heat better, so you’ll use less energy and feel warmer with less heat from the furnace.
Second, humid air is not an ideal environment for viruses, so adding a humidifier can help cut down on colds and flu in your household this winter. Third, a humidifier can make you feel better by keeping your sinuses and other mucous membranes from drying out and feeling irritated and achy. Humid air can also keep your skin from getting itchy and flakey. The drier your air, the more likely you’re compromising the air quality. Consider a humidifier to improve it.
#2: Try an Air Filtration System
An air filtration system can help clean pollutants and allergens out of the air in your home, improving your health and well-being while improving the indoor air quality. A good filtration system can pull up to 99% of airborne contaminants from the air and keep them from recirculating when the heat is on. When the air is better, you’ll feel better.
You can breathe easier in the winter, even when you’re spending more time indoors. To find the right way to improve the indoor air quality in your home, contact our team at H.H. Hovey today.
