New York residents and neighbors along the East Coast are tired of being cooped up due to frigid winter temperatures and weather conditions. As you continue to miss the sun and great outdoors, you may want to take matters into your own hands so that you can ease your breathing and make the inside of your home more habitable. Consider these ways to enhance your winter stuck inside:
- A humidifier will return the moisture in the air inside your home, allowing you to breathe easier and relieve dry sinuses. By utilizing a humidifier during the winter, you can relieve many cold symptoms.
- Likewise, an air purifier can be extremely beneficial in the home during the winter. These devices have the ability to remove biological pollutants and other indoor pollutants, making it so that you can breathe fresher air.
- Many homeowners fail to change and update the air filters in their home, however, completing this task will have you breathing easier, and enjoying fresher air. You can even upgrade your entire system and install high efficiency particulate air filters (HEPA). This will increase the efficiency of your airflow.
- You must make efforts to minimize pollution in your home. This can be done by prohibiting smoking inside your home and never idling your car in the garage. Also, checking for leaks regularly can help prevent moisture buildup, which is the main cause of mold. If you have any grout that needs to be repaired, make sure to cross that task off of your list sooner rather than later to avoid unnecessary water buildup.
