4 Tips To Improving Indoor Air Quality in the Winter

Nov 8, 2019

Home

 

With December fast approaching, we can’t deny it anymore – Winter is coming! Winter means that people are spending more time indoors and away from the cold.  As you spend more time indoors, the air quality in your home that your family is breathing becomes even more important. 

Here are four tips to ensure that your family is breathing high-quality air:

  1. Keep up to date with routine cleaning 

    Vacuum your floors once or twice per week with a vacuum equipped with a HEPA filter.  This is one of the simplest things that you can do to reduce dust and improve the quality of air in your home.  

  2. Change your furnace filter(s) regularly and on schedule

    Furnace filters are rated with a MERV rating.  MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value and the higher the MERV rating, the finer the particulate the filter will be able to block.  An electrostatic charged MERV 8 filter will provide good filtration without the risk of causing pressure drop associated with using filters with a higher rating.  Pressure drop occurs as resistance increases – requiring more energy and increasing costs and can also cause damage to mechanical equipment.  Homeowners interested in further increased filtration, should look at active electronic filtration devices (below). You should be replacing your furnace filter every 3 months under normal circumstances.  Click here for more information.

  3. Invest in a high quality electronic air filter

    Electronic, polarized media filters uses an electrical charge to create a polarized field.  When airborne particles pass through the field, they stick to the media incorporated into the filter.  These systems will actually increase in efficiency as they become soiled – but still require regular replacement.  Using an active electronic air filter will give you the benefits of a high MERV rated filter, without the risks of pressure drop associated with a traditional furnace filter.  Call Modern PURAIR at 1.800.996.3878 or by email, if you are interested in learning more about your options for active electronic polarized media filters.  

  4. Have your HVAC System professionally cleaned

    Your HVAC System (furnace and air ducts) are the lungs of your home.  The system draws air in from your home and the outside air, the furnace warms the air, and then blows that air out into your home.  Dust is drawn into your ductwork through the return air vents in your home.  Depending on the conditions in your home, you typically want to have your furnace and air ducts cleaned about every 2-3 years.  Be extremely cautious of service providers that advertise “to good to be true” prices.  Check their Google Reviews and ensure that they are NADCA Certified before booking.  Ensure that they are prepared and able to show you exactly what was removed from your home through the cleaning.  Click here for more information.
