What Can Be Done
Fortunately, by reducing the contaminant levels of airborne particles through proper indoor air-quality technologies, these problems may be alleviated. Here are some hints on how:
- Air purifiers clean harmful microscopic airborne pathogens from the conditioned air and some even capture and kill them to prevent them from re-entering the home.
- Another common issue during the winter is dry air. Installing a humidifier can help maintain proper humidity during heating season and help you avoid itchy, cracked skin, dry nasal passages and static electricity. It may even reduce the drying that can damage wood furniture and flooring.
An additional benefit to properly humidified air is that it feels warmer than drier air. When the humidity levels are reached you can actually lower your thermostat during heating season and stay more comfortable while saving on utility costs.
- Air infiltration is also a big concern. Today’s homes are built for better energy efficiency, with tighter construction and less air infiltration. While that’s great for maintaining temperatures, it means air can become stagnant and stale in your home, especially when you and your family are spending more time indoors.
You need fresh air in your home and that’s where a ventilator helps. It works with your heating and cooling system to allow clean, fresh outdoor air into your home without jeopardizing your comfort.
