With windows and doors tightly closed for the winter, it’s common for the air circulating inside your home to be less than fresh. This often leads to dry, stuffy indoor conditions, which can raise health concerns.
That said, it’s important to maintain good indoor air quality, whatever the season. Tyler Heating, Air Conditioning, Refrigeration LLC, a trusted expert in water heater repair, shares some tips on how you can have fresher indoor air this winter.
Use an Air Purifier
You can opt for a standalone air purifier or an add-on to your HVAC system. But more importantly, you have to consider the specific type of air purification system that you’ll use. Some air purifiers use ultraviolet light, while others use high-efficiency particulate arrestance (HEPA) filters.
An AC repair company can help you determine the best option for your home based on your specific indoor air quality concerns.
Clean the Ducts
Check the ductwork in your home, and clean it thoroughly. Ducts are designed to carry air from your furnace into your living spaces. Over time, they accumulate allergens and irritants, which will ultimately negatively affect indoor air quality. Duct cleaning requires special tools and techniques, however, which is why it’s best to call in a professional to ensure the job is done properly.
Keep Your Furnace Well Maintained
Your furnace consists of various components that need regular care and attention. Much like other mechanical parts, they wear out and get damaged for various reasons. This will cause your heating system to malfunction and compromise indoor air quality. However, as long as you conduct regular tune-ups and carry out repairs or replacement whenever necessary, you can expect your furnace to contribute to keeping your indoor air fresh over the winter.
