Tips for Maintaining Your Winter Indoor Air Quality

The staff at J Martin knows that our customers want to save money on their heating bills. One way you can do this is by weatherproofing your home so that warm air stays inside. While this can reduce your fuel bill, it can also create problems for your indoor air quality. When there is not an easy exchange of fresh outdoor air and stale indoor air, a number of irritants can build up in your air supply. Poor air quality can have negative effects on your health, especially if someone in your family has respiratory problems. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to improve the quality of your air.

Use Exhaust Fans

Volatile organic compounds are released into your air by several sources. The most common cause is the use of beauty and cleaning products. Cooking with oil can also send microdroplets through your kitchen area. Because the kitchen and bathrooms are the highest producers of VOCs, it is important to run your exhaust fans whenever these areas are in use. The fans vent air outside, which will pull fresh air into your home.

Tackle the Dust and Dirt

As long as you have people and animals in your home, you are going to have dust, hair, and dander. The best way to deal with dirt and dust is to remove it. During the winter months, you will want to spend some extra time dusting and vacuuming. Try using microfiber cloths for dusting as they pick up dust rather than just pushing it away. A daily vacuuming session in high-traffic areas is also helpful.

Ventilate

Even though it may be cold outside, it is a good idea to get fresh air into your home. You can crack open some windows during the warmest part of the day. Try to do this in rooms that are farthest from your thermostat to minimize the extra work for your heating system. If you want a long-term solution, you should talk to a professional about installing a ventilation system in your home.

At J Martin, we are ready to tackle all your heating, cooling, and indoor air quality concerns in Yorba Linda. Our highly trained technicians can work with any climate system. Contact us today for more information about professional solutions for your home comfort.
