In the spring and summer, it is easy to get a little fresh air circulating in the house—crack open a few windows and the job is done. But what about in the winter months when the heater is working away and the wind outside is just too chilly? Along with an air purifier, there are other tips you call follow to keep your home comfortable and healthy this winter.
For starters, a great way to keep the air in your home clean and fresh is to purchase an air purifier. This device will fight accumulating dust and circulate the air, which is great for someone suffering from allergies. It is also a good investment if you simply want a cleaner home or office.
There are several different types of air purifying systems with various technologies to get the air clean. Depending on what you are looking for, you can choose between a HEPA, activated carbon, electronic or UV purifier to fit your home or office.
If the problem is dry air, which is common in the winter months since heat takes moisture out of the air, consider purchasing a humidifier. There are personal humidifiers for rooms in your home, or entire house humidifiers depending on what solution you need.
Another tip is to get a few houseplants. They are attractive and provide oxygen for us to breathe.
Freshen physical objects in the home, such as the carpet. Have the carpets steamed or sprinkle some baking soda over the carpet, wait ten minutes, and vacuum over it to remove any odors.
And last, but not least, are commercial air fresheners—chemicals you can spray into the air that will remove odors and allergens and refresh the scent of your home.
By following these tips, your home should remain full of fresh air this winter.
