Beating the Winter Air Quality Woes

February 21, 2019

The air quality in your home can suffer greatly in the winter months. In order for your heating system to function at its best, you seal your home and limit the amount of fresh air that can get inside. This leads to dust, allergens, and irritants building up in the air of your home. Winter air is also dry air, which can lead to dry, itchy skin and a scratchy throat. Here are some tips on how to improve your home’s air quality in the winter months.

Crack Open a Window

In the warmest part of the day, open a window. This will allow fresh air to come inside and vent out some of the stagnant air in your house. When the sun is shining, opening a window will also improve your mood in general.

Keep Sweeping

The best way to remove dust and allergens from the air is to get them out of your home. By doing some extra sweeping, dusting and vacuuming, you are removing these particles from the environment. You might also want to invest in a robotic vacuum that will consistently remove dust and dirt from your floors.

Call a Professional

For the very young, the elderly and those with respiratory issues, bad air quality can be a serious issue. In this case, you may want to bring in a professional air quality technician. There are a number of home air quality solutions available. Humidifiers can help address the dry air of winter. Air purifiers will filter dust and allergens out of the air. Ventilators can keep fresh air flowing into your home without disrupting your heating system. By consulting with an air quality expert, you can keep your family breathing easier through the winter months.
