Four Ways To Breathe Easy This Winter
As if you weren’t spending enough time at home, winter is coming. That means more time indoors without so much as afternoon tea in the backyard to console you. So how do you stay healthy with less time outdoors? The answer is simple: make sure your indoor air conditions are just right. Here are four ways to breathe easy this winter.
Tune-up your furnace
Keeping your indoor temperature warm enough throughout your house means tuning up your furnace. Even if you’re not left out in the cold with a catastrophic failure, your furnace can chug along, underperforming for weeks and months. Temperature fluctuations and a continuous chill can cause sickness with all that extra indoor time. Make it a priority to get your furnace working well before the temperature drops.
Regardless of how clean your ductwork is, you still need fresh outdoor air inside your home. Reduce the buildup of carbon dioxide and moist air with exhaust fans. Bring in outdoor air with an energy recovery ventilator and improve your home’s indoor air quality. If you can’t spend enough time outdoors, bring the outside air inside.
Winter is known for low humidity that can cause “winter skin” with painful cracking and flaking dryness. Just imagine what’s happening inside your nose, throat, and lungs. Dry mucous membranes reduce your ability to fight nasty colds and other illnesses. Boost your health with a humidifier while you spend time inside your home.
Filter your air
Remove dust and other particles from your home’s air system with the right filter in your furnace. A supplemental air purifier can improve the air you breathe even more. For all the time you spend in your home during colder months, keep your air clean, so your health doesn’t suffer.
Keep your sanity with walks in the snow and time outdoors where possible. For the rest of the time inside, let Western Heating and Air help you keep your home’s indoor conditions just right for the time you’ll be spending there as the weather cools down.
