Cold weather is not far off now, and people are starting to take steps to get their homes ready for winter. Staying warm is obviously a top priority during this time of year, but it shouldn’t be the only one. Indoor air quality can have quite the effect on how comfortable and healthy you are during the winter. As such, it should be taken into account when making preparations. Let’s take a look at how you can keep your air as clean as possible this winter.

Airborne Contaminants

So, why is indoor air quality such a big deal, anyway? The average home’s air is teeming with microscopic airborne contaminants. Some of these contaminants include dust, pollen, dander, viruses, bacteria, and mold spores. These can cause a wide range of issues, from allergy attacks to asthma. During the winter, people tend to shut all of their doors and windows in order to make it easier to maintain climate control. This causes the contaminants to be recycled through the house endlessly, making it easier to be affected by them.

Air Purifiers

The best way to deal with this issue is to install a whole house air purifier in your home. Air purifiers are systems designed to remove airborne contaminants from the air, which they do in a variety of ways. Ionization purifiers use clouds of ions to draw contaminants out of the air. Air filters snare them in fiber mesh. UV air purifiers kill off germs and mold spores with high concentrations of ultraviolet light.
