How To Manage Winter Air Quality Issues
Living in a place that is as warm as San Antonio year-round, it’s often simple to keep your home warm and comfortable during the cooler months. It can be as easy as just keeping the doors and windows closed and making sure the home has enough insulation to keep it cozy. This usually keeps enough heat inside the home that you only sometimes have to turn on the heat.
However, at the same time, you are also trapping this air inside the home, preventing any fresh air from coming inside, and this can be a down side to a closed home. This causes a concentration of different elements inside the home, such as household cleanser fumes, paint, insecticides, hygiene sprays, etc, to start to accumulate. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, poor air quality in the cooler months can lead to asthma, respiratory issues, and can even cause heart conditions.
So how can you improve your air quality without letting in cold winter air and increasing your energy consumption?
Vetter Air has some suggestions for you;
- Air filters and cleaners: The most straightforward and at times the most effective method of reducing amounts of unwanted air particles in your home is to have air filtration and purification systems installed. Professionals at Vetter Air can find the correct pairing of air filters and electronic air cleaners to remove more than 99% of the contaminants in your indoor air.
- Ultraviolet air purifiers: This is a unique style of air purifier that targets organic pollutants like bacteria and mold spores. The UV light will kill microbes without placing any unwanted chemicals into the air.
- Whole house humidifiers: Dry air can frequently be a problem during colder months when the house is closed up, and heating systems such as furnaces contribute to dry air by helping remove excess moisture from the air. Having a professionally installed whole house humidifier can help balance the humidity in your home, making it more comfortable for all.
- Reme Halo Air Purifier: Every time your fan blows air it carries the purifying power of nature’s “Friendly Oxidizers” out into the conditioned space where the “Friendly Oxidizers” begin to attack bacteria, viruses, and mold spores at the source and reduce odors in your home. The human sneeze is a great example; germs can be ejected from a sneeze at 100mph. With the Reme air purifier installed, 99% of the germs in a sneeze can be neutralized before the germs settle into the environment. Call Vetter Air and have a Reme installed today!
