Only a few weeks into the new year and the flu bug is taking its toll. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) flu activity is active between October and May, peaking sometime between December and February.
That’s also the timeframe you operate your furnace more than usual.
In reality, indoor air is up to five times more polluted than outside air. In the heart of the winter, we spend more time indoors. We rarely open up doors or windows to let fresh breezes roll through our homes. Instead, we buckle down and insulate ourselves against the frigid weather. And we recirculate airborne pollutants again and again.
Pollutants can come in the form of pet dander, dust mites, mold, or pollen. Changing your air filter regularly combats the issue by allowing air circulation to pass through clean filters instead of dirty ones. The EPA recommends at a minimum to change out your air filters every three months, whether they look dirty or not.
Changing your air filter isn’t enough to keep you healthy in the winter months. Proper and frequent HVAC maintenance keeps your heating and air conditioning systems running smoothly as well. Because your ductwork is hidden behind the walls, you rarely think about the air moving through it. We only focus on staying comfortable no matter what the weather.
But if your ductwork isn’t in top condition, it’s blowing pollutants into your air supply. A fully sealed system ensures clean, fresh air comes from your registers. It ensures that every time your HVAC system turns on, you are breathing the freshest air possible.
When you really think about it, your HVAC system isn’t just about creating a comfortable environment, it’s ensuring a healthy environment too. If you’re having trouble with your heating or air conditioning system, it’s time to connect with an HVAC company that’s on your side, that can help you keep your system running as efficiently as possible.
