With the cold weather here, our windows are closed and the furnaces are working hard to keep us warm. Both fall and winter can be tough times for indoor air quality. Reduced air circulation inside our home traps dust, allergens, mildew, toxins or other bacteria in the air, causing your home to have poor indoor air quality. It’s important to tackle these air quality problems head on.
If you would like to improve your home’s indoor air quality this season, here are a few tips to help solve the air quality problems in your home!
Purify Your Air: New technology has made it easier for pollutants and contaminants to be removed from the air. For example, Blue Flame Heating & Air Conditioning LLC offers AccuClean™ Air Cleaners and Whole-Home Filtration Systems that remove up to 99.98% of the allergens in your home. This means you can breath easier and safer without any extra hassle.
Clean Regularly: Dust and toxins can accumulate in your home. It’s important to vacuum, dust and clean regularly to reduce the build up of allergens in your home. There are also products available that can help keep your air fresher and cleaner for longer.
Open Up: One of the best ways to improve indoor air quality is with circulation of fresh air. The weather might be cooling down but it’s a good idea to open your windows or doors to let in fresh air.
Change Air Filters: When is the last time you replaced your air filter? Air filters should be checked and cleaned every 3 months and changed anywhere from 6 months to a year.
Clean Ducts: Have you cleaned your ducts lately? Over the years, air ducts can become contaminated with dust, mold, particles and even debris. Cleaning ductwork can be easily done with a vacuum or brush. Additionally, you can hire a professional to get the cleaning done properly.
At Blue Flame Heating & Air Conditioning LLC, we know the importance of indoor air quality. Our technicians can help you take the necessary steps to reduce pollutants and ensure your home or office has good, clean air circulating.
