Indoor air quality is important year round, but many people notice the ill-effects of indoor air pollution more during the winter months when there’s less fresh air circulating from open windows and doors. To keep your home healthy and everyone inside breathing easy, make sure to regularly check and change the furnace filter and consider installing a humidifier or heat recovery ventilator.
An easy way to decrease indoor air pollutants is to regularly check and change the furnace filter. Far too many homeowners run their furnace with a clogged filter, compromising indoor air quality and also putting their heating system at risk of overheating. Make sure to check the filter at least once a month and replace as required.
|Remember, there are a variety of filters on the market and some are better than others at catching particles and keeping the air clean. Just remember to check that the filter you’re using is compatible with your heating system.|
Humidifiers are a surprising way to improve air quality by keeping dust from floating in the air and the right moisture level can even help reduce the spread of viruses and bacteria. A whole-home humidifier can easily be installed to your existing heating system to regulate the moisture level throughout the house.
The best way to improve indoor air quality is with the installation of an HRV (heat recovery ventilator). This system exchanges stale, polluted indoor air for fresh outdoor air. As the exchange occurs, heat from the outgoing air is transferred to the incoming air, conserving energy.
