Your Indoor Air Can Help Keep You Healthy This Winter

Your Indoor Air Can Help Keep You Healthy This Winter

  • December 13, 2017

Today, we spend nearly 90 percent of our time indoors, which means we’re almost always breathing indoor air. Indoor air quality is important all year long, but particularly so during the winter. Shorter days and cooler temperatures mean you’ll spend even more time inside, and if you have a forced-air heating system, you may be breathing dry, stale air all winter long. That’s why we recommend investing in some of our air quality products and services that can help you breathe easily and live a healthier life.

Air Quality Products

There are a wide range of products available to help you improve the quality of air in your home, including:

Air Cleaners and Air Purifiers: These systems work to improve air quality directly by removing contaminants from the air. An air purification system is especially helpful if there are people in your home with asthma or seasonal allergies.

Humidifiers: Again, if you have a furnace, you may be dealing with dry air in your home. Humidifiers put back what your furnace takes away, which not only improves air quality but also helps to preserve wooden furniture.

Energy Recovery Ventilators: An air-source heat pump or furnace can work for you during the heating season. Ventilators work with your existing HVAC system to recover heat that is being exhausted to treat and condition incoming fresh outdoor air.

UV Lights: Ultraviolet (UV) light works to kill certain contaminants in the air. UV lamps are fairly inexpensive and work well with your other HVAC systems.
