How To Improve Indoor Air Quality This Winter

How To Improve Indoor Air Quality This Winter | Furnace Maintenance | Rusk Heating & Cooling Take a deep breath. Feels good, right? Well, it might not feel so good when we tell you that you're breathing in harmful airborne pollutants and toxic chemicals. How is this possible? Believe it or not, the air inside your very own home is much dirtier than you think. Ever notice that the air feels stuffy or dry inside your home during the winter months? This is a good indicator that you're inhaling things that should not be inside your body. From dust and debris to pet dander and other chemicals, it's no wonder you find yourself coughing from time to time. So, how you can you clean it all up? The first step is furnace maintenance. Think of it the same way you think of your car. If routine maintenance isn't performed, it won't run at peak performance. This is where cleaning or replacing the filter comes into play. Most, if not all, of the air you breathe in in the wintertime passes through the furnace filter first which is why it's vital to keep it clean. It's also a good idea to vacuum your vents, especially if you have a forced air heating system. Lots of dust and indoor allergens gather here and you guessed it - when warm air blows through it takes the bad things with it. Ready to clean up the air inside your home this winter?
