Indoor Air Quality Issues You May Encounter this Winter

There are many indoor air quality issues that you may encounter this winter. As the weather cools down, you might notice more issues with your indoor air quality than before. This is typically because your indoor air quality becomes a focal point in your home because you’re spending more time indoors. 

If you’re noticing something, it’s also time for you to say something. Luckily, there’s plenty of things that you can do to improve your HVAC in Royersford, PA. We’re prepared to help you with everything that you need. Let’s talk about the indoor air quality issues that you might encounter when the weather cools down.

The Signs That Your Indoor Air Quality Is Struggling this Winter

Are you wondering what the signs are that your indoor air quality is struggling? There are quite a few things this winter that might indicate an issue that you’re having with your indoor air quality. 

Discomfort

Are you comfortable? With this, we’re talking about the consistency of warmth in your home and your personal symptoms. If spending more time indoors has resulted in more dust all around your home, you coughing and wheezing, and then topping this all off with restless sleep that’s filled with snoring, then you might want to try again when it comes to your comfort. 

Stuffiness

One thing that winter can bring is stuffiness in your home. After all, you’re going to spend a lot of your days with your windows closed and your heater running almost constantly. The lack of fresh air in your home is going to be an issue. This is where an ERV system can come in handy.

Struggling to Get Warm 

Are you struggling to get warm when you have a heater that’s working perfectly fine. This is an issue. Sometimes, it’s not the heating system itself but your indoor air quality taking away from your heating power. We can help you work around this. 

Some Systems You Might Want to Try Out

There are many things you can do to improve your indoor air quality this winter season.

ERV Systems

ERV systems are energy recovery ventilators. ERV systems allow you to circulate in fresh air when your home is closed up and you want to maintain your home’s internal temperature. 

Air Purifiers

Air purifiers are a great method of cleaning your home’s indoor air. We methods that we use are typically through units like Air Scrubbers and Reme Halo Air Purifiers. We typically match our homeowners with these systems because they’re so effective and reliable.

Humidity Control

Your humidity needs to be balanced as well. It needs to be above 30% and below 50%. If it’s below 30%, you’re going to need a humidifier and if it’s above 50%, you’re going to need a dehumidifier. 

UV Lights

UV lights are great if you’re trying to get rid of tiny microorganisms that are plaguing your home. We’ll help you find a UV light system that’s right for you.
