More On Indoor Air Quality
In St. Paul, residents do everything possible to keep the warm air inside their homes in the winter for optimal comfort and economical heating bills. But by creating an air-tight house, you are also trapping an abundance of pollution and contamination in your home that could contribute to serious health issues. So it is crucial for homeowners to take steps to purify the air indoors. This essential process can include:
- Adding Air Purification – Investing in whole-home air purification or a room air filter will help remove the contamination in your home during the winter months.
- Air Exchanges – Introducing fresh outdoor air into your home is the best way to eliminate the polluted air locked inside your house. So when the sun is shining and the daytime temps warm up, take a few minutes to open doors and windows to let in some fresh air.
- Air Exchangers – An air exchange can be installed in your HVAC system by the team at Blue Ox to ensure that the air inside your home is always fresh. The unit will remove the low-quality contaminated air from your home while introducing fresh air into the HVAC system to increase your home’s air quality and reduce breathing issues due to allergies and asthma.
