Healthy Homes: How to Improve Indoor Air Quality in Winter

Cold weather generally makes people want to huddle inside their closed up homes for the duration of winter. While this is definitely the right idea for staying warm, it can also create a breeding ground for germs and bacteria.

How to Get Fresh Air in the House in Winter

Safely airing out your home can help kill the stuff that makes you sick. It can also help brighten your mood and make you feel more awake. This occasional trick helps to refresh your entire home and reduce the risk of getting sick.

  • Do not do this if it’s snowing or temperatures are dangerously low. 
  • Systematically close vents and open windows, one or two rooms at a time.
  • Close the doors between rooms as you do this to prevent heat from escaping.
  • Leave windows open long enough to completely and thoroughly air out the room.
  • When finished, close the windows and open vents again.

Airing out your home helps get rid of dust mites, mold spores, and other allergens that accumulate when your home is closed up. Increasing ventilation in general helps improve poor indoor air quality and humidity levels.

Regularly Change Your Air Filter

Don’t underestimate the power of a clean air filter. Changing or cleaning your air filter helps keep your home’s air clean and prolongs the life of your heater. If you have pets or anyone in the home has been sick, be sure to change the filters more frequently.

Humidifier & Air Purification

If your home has excessively dry air, which can cause difficulty breathing and poor sleep, consider a whole home humidifier and air purifier. These high efficiency machines are directly attached to the HVAC system, ensuring evenly dispersed clean air throughout your home.
