I’ve also taken proactive measures, such as the upgrade of a whole-home whole-home air purifier.
The severe winter conditions in my local section keep my family inside for more than half the year! With feet of snow on the ground, uneven temperatures in the disadvantages and a dangerous windchill, we spend as little time outside as possible. It’s necessary to run the boiler from sometime in November or November until the end of May or even early May. Because of the high cost of heating bills, I take every precaution to seal up the home and prevent energy waste. I’ve replaced windows, added insulation, installed ceiling fan and correctly caulk and weatherstrip, creating a slender thermal envelope elevates the efficiency of the boiler however also eliminates natural ventilation. Contaminants can become trapped in the home and endlessly circulated. There are potential sources of pollutants in every room of the house. The pet as well as processes such as cooking, showering and cleaning contribute to the problem. Odors, dander, dust, bacteria, viruses, VOCs and all sorts of harmful toxins can deteriorate the integrity of our breathing air! Poor indoor air quality can be blamed for multiple health conditions, but everything from coughing, sneezing, congestion and sore throat to respiratory infection, migraines and insomnia can be blamed on breathing unhealthy air. I am diligent about replacing air filters and scheduling professional maintenance for the boiler and cooling system. I have the air duct diagnosed, cleaned and sealed every few years. I’ve also taken proactive measures, such as the upgrade of a whole-home whole-home air purifier. The whole-home air purifier is installed into the air duct and traps contaminants as the air passes through. The device also emits positive and disadvantage ions into the living space. These ions kill pathogens and cause particles to clump together and be more actually filtered out.
