Are you experiencing sinus problems, dry skin, or static shock? Consider these steps to improve the air quality in your home.

Winter can be bad enough in Northern Ohio, but when you add the air quality and sickness that comes along with it, we find ourselves struggling to endure a long winter season. Along with adapting to the cold winter months, comes dryer air inside our homes. You might recognize some or all of these symptoms:

If any of these sound familiar, know that your home doesn’t have to be this way. A few simple steps can change the conditions inside your home to make it more bearable until warmer weather comes our way.

Create optimal living conditions in your home, and alleviate the symptoms of dry air by:

Having a Whole Home Humidifier Installed:

Properly humidified air can help resolve some of these dry air symptoms. Buying a small tabletop or portable humidifier will not be enough. The only way to really solve the problem is to get a furnace humidifier installed. A whole house humidifier installed in your HVAC system is the only way to truly change the humidity level of your entire home at once. These devices add moisture to the air, helping to maintain an optimal humidity level in your home and can even help your house to feel warmer while still burning the same amount of fuel.

Regular Maintenance of Your HVAC:

Ensuring that your HVAC system is well-maintained is crucial. Clean filters and a well-functioning system can help in preserving moisture in the air and improve the air circulating through our homes.

Use of Programmable Thermostats:

Setting your thermostat at an appropriate temperature can prevent excessive heating, which can dry out the air. Programmable thermostats allow you to regulate temperatures efficiently leading to a more comfortable and properly humidified indoor environment.

Ventilation:

Adequate ventilation is essential for maintaining good indoor air quality. Ensure that your HVAC system provides proper ventilation to prevent stale, dry air from accumulating.

As a homeowner, check your home for leaks. Proper insulation and sealing any air leaks in your home can prevent cold outdoor air from entering and mixing with the warmer indoor air. This can also help in retaining moisture.

If you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of dry air; respiratory problems, headaches, sinuses, allergies, or sneezing, call ComfortPro Heating and Cooling to have your HVAC system maintenance completed, and ask about getting a furnace humidifier or programmable thermostat installed. You’re one call away from a more enjoyable winter! 330-809-1060
