Welcome to November! Not only is November a gorgeous autumn month full of apple-picking, colourful leaves, and anticipation for the upcoming holiday season, November is also national lung month! November is a great time to think about our lungs and how they keep us alive and healthy, and what we can do to keep them happy in return. One of the best ways to keep your lungs happy and healthy is to keep the air quality in your home high, so here are a few of our favourite air quality tips for national lung month!
Change Your Furnace Filter Often
Changing your furnace filter is essential and we will shout it from the rooftops! Your furnace filter collects all of the allergens, hair, and dust in the air and can get grimy quite quickly. For the best home air quality possible, check your furnace filter every thirty days and change it as needed or at least every ninety days.
Plants Are Your Friends
This is one of our favourite home air quality tips because not only are plants beautiful and create great ambiance and decor, they’re great for your lungs and the quality of your home’s air. Decorate your home with plants for a beautiful pop of colour as well as an improved air quality. Some of the best plants for home air quality include bamboo, English ivy, and peace lilies.
Install a Whole-Home Humidifier
As the weather gets colder, the air in your home will begin to become drier. This diminishes the air quality in your home and can potentially irritate your lungs and your sinuses. A great way to improve your home’s air quality is to invest in a whole-home humidifier: a system that works to add a healthy amount of humidity back into your home’s air, making your home more comfortable during the cooler seasons.
Install a Whole-Home Air Purification System
Another great way to keep your home’s air quality high, and help remove toxins from your home’s air during cold and flu season this year is to invest in a whole-home air purification system. Quality whole-home air purification systems like the Lennox PureAir can take up to 95% of airborne particles from the air in your home using UVA lights and carbon filters. Say good-bye to odours, germs, bacteria, and allergens in your home’s air this November and say hello to happy lungs!
Schedule Annual Preventative Maintenance
One of the most important ways to keep your home’s air quality high and your lungs happy is to ensure that your furnace is working properly and efficiently. An inefficient, clogged, or otherwise broken furnace can create a very uncomfortable home environment for your lungs. Trust the experts to keep your furnace working properly and call Delta for annual preventative furnace maintenance.
