Be Well in Winter Weather
The fall foliage is both gorgeous and lovely to look at, but with it comes a rise in fall chills and ills. It finally becomes that time to turn on the heat and start the furnace. With this heat comes the musty indoor air, the pains of dust and allergens. While you think you?re just breathing the same old air, there vents may be circulating more than warm air. Keep your ventilation and heating systems clean by doing the following:
- Get into your vents to clean out dust and debris.
- Have a professional come in to clean the ducts.
- Run an air purifier to clean up residual allergens and maintain a healthy air home.
- Maintain a humid home to counteract when the heat runs high.
You can be even more susceptible to illness if you supper from allergens regularly. Some allergy irritants that can be hiding in your heating system are:
- Pet Dander
Your air, your body. Don?t sacrifice air quality for temperature comforts. You can always have it all, a warm house and a healthy head, when you stay on top of air quality in the coming cooler months. Remember to keep your health a number one priority because the fall will bring more than enough illnesses either way!
