Tips for Maintaining Your Winter Indoor Air Quality
When winter arrives in Centerville, UT, you’ll shutter your windows and switch on the furnace until spring. While this certainly helps keep your home warm, an unintended side effect is that you’ll breathe the same musty, old indoor air for months. The good news? There are a few things you can do to improve your indoor air quality inside your house.
1. Replace Furnace Filters Regularly
Freshening up your furnace filters on a regular basis is important, especially during the winter when your heating system is running nonstop. Since you, your family, and your pets are spending a lot more time indoors, there’s more debris in the air. Dust, dander, and pet hair cause the air filters to fill up faster and require more frequent replacements.
2. Keep the Floors Clean
Doormats reduce the amount of dirt and germs that get introduced into your home from the outdoors. You can further reduce that amount by having anyone entering your house remove his or her shoes after walking inside.
3. Keep Your Vents and Registers Clean
As a homeowner, you probably often dust your furniture and bookshelves, but it’s easy to forget about your vents and registers. When your vents aren’t cleaned regularly, that dust gets circulated throughout your home and can lead to allergies and other respiratory issues. It’s easy to clean the vents; simply vacuum them with a wand attachment, and you’ll have cleaner, healthier indoor air. For a deeper clean, our technicians at High Country HVAC can inspect and clean your ducts during a furnace tune-up.
