With fall almost done and winter right around the corner, you’ll be inside more often. The air you breathe plays a big role in your health and well-being – that’s why it’s important to pay close attention to your indoor air quality. So, here are some tips on how to maintain the best indoor air quality possible.
#1: Schedule your fall tune-up appointment.
Just like your car needs regular oil changes and your body needs regular check-ups, so does your furnace system! Stay on top of preventative maintenance for your system. These appointments are critical to maintaining the life of your furnace. Our team at Specialty Heating and Cooling closely examines all internal components, cleans and replaces air filters, runs an energy efficiency check, and more. If we notice any issues, we’ll discuss them with you and get them fixed. A clean system ensures that no dust and debris buildup cause poor air quality or contributes to a premature system breakdown.
#2: Clean and replace your furnace filters.
If your furnace has dirty filters, you will breathe dirty air that has allergens, bacteria, pollutants, and other harmful particles. Make sure to replace or clean your filters often – we recommend homeowners do that every 1 to 2 months. Doing this ensures your furnace functions at optimal efficiency. It also helps filter the air you breathe and push clean air into your home. Forgetting to clean or replace your air filters adversely impacts your home’s air quality.
#3: Add an air purification system to your home.
With COVID-19, colds, and flu viruses circulating this autumn and winter, people are looking for ways to stay healthy. Air purifiers can help! These machines help clean the air you breathe, removing allergens, toxins, and bacteria that cause illness. Contact our team at Specialty Heating and Cooling to learn more about the air purification systems we install. And, they work alongside your existing furnace and help keep you healthier all season long.
So, take control of the air you breathe! Let us help put you on the path toward keeping your indoor air quality in pristine condition. Contact us today for a routine maintenance appointment, to ask about our air purification options, or to learn more about getting a furnace replacement before the winter. We look forward to working with you to keep you comfortable!
