When relying on conditioned air to keep you breathing clean air, there are certain things you can do to ensure that recirculating indoor air is healthy and free of irritants. The Barton Boys can help you get ready for winter with some expert tips.

1. Schedule Seasonal HVAC Maintenance

Routine maintenance of your heater is one of the easiest ways to improve your indoor air quality. Our maintenance service includes cleaning the furnace, as well as changing the filters. Clean filters are necessary to trap pet dander, dust mites, pollen, and other indoor pollutants. Clogged filters can cause poor airflow and a build-up of allergens and dust inside your ducts.

2. Have Your Ducts Cleaned

Ducts can benefit from periodic cleaning to remove debris build-up. Dirty ducts can harbor mold, mites, bacteria, and even common viruses. Having your ducts professionally cleaned can reduce allergies, asthma, the common cold, and the flu.

3. Install an Air Scrubber

Air scrubbers are filtering systems that can purify your indoor air. The two types of air scrubbers we recommend are UVC light and Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy (REME) systems. UVC light works 24/7 to target and destroy contaminants on surfaces and in the air. REME uses magnetic energy to produce hydrogen peroxide that destroys bacteria, mold, and viruses.

4. Steam Humidifier

Your home or business can become very dry from constantly running your heater during winter. Dry air can contribute to upper respiratory infections. A steam humidifier attached to your HVAC supply can maintain appropriate humidity levels within the indoor air to help reduce sinus infections and overly dry skin.
