4 Indoor Air Quality Tips For A Healthier Holiday Season!

Campeau Heating in Sudbury, Ontario, provides 4 indoor air quality tips this winter.

4 Indoor Air Quality Tips For A Healthier Holiday Season!

The holiday season has arrived! And with it, dropping temperatures, dry air and the oh-so-dreaded cold season. It’s important to remember that, although many of us are able to enjoy our pre-COVID traditions once again, the virus is still present. And we can still contract the symptoms - potentially causing quite an unpleasant holiday experience. 

This year, make sure that your home is truly merry and bright! By improving your indoor air quality, you can ensure that your family’s environment is clean, fresh and healthy. Giving your family and friends one of the best gifts they could ask for - a safe holiday season!

 

4 Tips To Improve Your Indoor Air Quality This Winter

Ongoing research has now identified four key tips for improving your indoor air quality and reducing the risk of illness - including COVID-19.  

These four tips also lower the risks of: 

  • Bacterial Issues 
  • Fungal Issues 
  • Microbial Health Issues

What could possibly provide this much protection in your home? 

Humidity, ventilation, air purification and air filtration! 

1. Humidity Balance

You might be surprised to learn that the recommended winter humidity percentage has changed over the years. What used to be a recommended 30-50% is now between 40-60%! 

Why?

Because COVID-19 (also called SARS-CoV-2) doesn’t like humidity. 

But how do you regulate these humidity levels during the winter, when everything is so dry?

We recommend a whole house humidifier! This system will increase your humidity, bringing more moisture into your home. 

Health Benefits of a Humidifier:

  • Lessening allergy and illness symptoms.
  • Improving your body’s defences against germs and viruses. 
  • Preventing your body from drying out (ie. sore throats, cracked lips and dry hands).
  • And lastly, improved sleep!

2. Air Purification 

Air purification is the process of, you guessed it, purifying your indoor air! 

Although this process occurs naturally in nature - honing the sun’s UV rays in order to kill bacteria, viral, fungal and microbes - homeowners have to use an alternate, synthetic form of ultraviolet light in order to keep their indoor air pure. 

To use the example of VIRAL COVID-19 droplets, these synthetic short-wave UV light bands purify both liquid and gaseous toxins. 

This ensures that your indoor air is purified before it even reaches you!

3. Ventilation 

In the summer months, ventilation is easy - simply crack open a window or two! 

However, during the frigid winter season, this isn’t a viable option. In fact, even briefly opening your door a crack lets in too much cold air.

Thankfully, there’s a system you can install within your home to help bring fresh air indoors, without actually letting that cold air freeze your toes off!

A heat recovery ventilator system (HRV System) will increase fresh air indoors while also diffusing airborne toxins! The best part? You’ll also start saving money on your energy bills! 

4. Air Filtration 

Lastly, one of the best solutions to ensure that your indoor air stays clean for yourself, your family and your guests this season is an air filtration system.

This piece of indoor air quality equipment does more than purify your air, it actually manually removes the harmful toxins within it!

By installing a HEPA air filter to your HVAC system, you can actually remove solid particles as small as 0.01 microns. And it’s 99.97% effective!
 

Don’t Forget To Clean Your Air Ducts!

Your home’s ductwork is also one of the most effective ways of maintaining clean indoor air. 

If you recently bought your home in the past year, we highly recommend having your ducts professionally cleaned - who knows when they last had the service done, if at all!
