      How to Deal With Winter Indoor Air Quality Problems

      The winter season introduces specific challenges to maintaining healthy indoor air. In this blog, Superior Air shares essential tips for dealing with these issues so you can remain comfortable in your home.

      How to Deal With Winter Indoor Air Quality Problems

      How Winter Weather Affects Indoor Air Quality

      During the winter, efforts to keep homes warm and energy-efficient inadvertently seal off fresh air circulation, leading to increased concentrations of allergens and pollutants inside. Combustion sources—such as your heating system—can produce harmful emissions like carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide, exacerbating health issues and worsening air quality.

      Common Sources and Effects of Indoor Air Pollution

      Common sources contributing to indoor pollution include oil, gas, wood-burning stoves, and even your furniture. Activities like painting or sanding, as well as the use of household cleaning products, can increase indoor pollutants. Such pollutants encompass a range of allergens like mold, pet dander, and VOCs. Poor indoor air quality can lead to immediate effects like dizziness and headaches, while long-term exposure is linked to more severe consequences such as respiratory diseases and cancer.

      Strategies for Improving Indoor Air Quality

      • Proper Ventilation: While heating systems are adept at maintaining temperatures, they typically do not introduce fresh air into your home. Simple actions, like opening windows when temperatures allow, can dilute the concentration of indoor pollutants. It’s also essential to have your heating system inspected and maintained regularly to ensure it functions correctly without introducing additional pollutants into your home.
      • Regular Maintenance: Keeping your home clean through regular dusting and vacuuming can mitigate air quality problems. Replacing furnace filters prevents contaminants from recirculating in your home’s air. Therefore, regular checks and timely repairs are as crucial as ever.
      • Air Purification: For those particularly sensitive to indoor allergens or where ventilation is insufficient, air purifiers can be a valuable addition. Opting for purifiers with HEPA filters can capture particulate matter, but for gas and chemical pollutants, activated carbon filters are necessary. It’s important to choose a purifier that’s adequately sized for your living space and caters to specific sensitivities you or your family may have.
