Winter is on its way here in Georgetown, TX, and that means that winter colds are coming as well. Colds are prevalent in the winter because the cool air is dry air, which dries out your sinuses and makes your body more vulnerable to germs. This is true for every household, but especially for homes with new babies, elderly family members, or anyone suffering from asthma or similar conditions. You can take steps to keep your home free of those germs with the timely installation of an indoor air quality product. There’s a wide variety available and one of them may be the perfect fit for your family. Here are a few options to consider:
UV Air Purifiers
UV air purifiers use ultraviolet light to target germs and bacteria. The light is harmless to us but lethal to them, and by setting up UV light bulbs at the apex to your duct system, where the little invaders are blown whenever your heater or air conditioner runs, the light can easily target them. Over time, it scrubs the air clean, making your home safer and healthier in the process.
Cold bugs often strike through our sinuses, and when they dry out, your body is vulnerable. Humidifiers increase the moisture in the air, helping your body protect itself against tiny invaders. Humidifiers also ease the strain on the heating system and cut down heavily on nuisances like static electricity.
Most heating systems come with filters to strain out dirt and dust. You can help yourself out by changing the filter every 30 days and ensuring that it never gets clogged. You might also consider installing an electric air filter, which provides more comprehensive coverage of dust, dirt, and grit.
