You may be wondering - how can I prepare my home for the changing of the seasons? Your home will be a place of respite and warmth for your family as the fall season brings fluctuating, cooler temperatures. Here are a few important to-dos that should be on your home maintenance checklist.
Think that closing your windows and turning on the air conditioning will protect you from summer air pollutants? Think again.
On these hot June days, are you finding that your skin feels extra sticky or clammy when you are inside your home? Do your short, hot showers result in long-term fog conditions in your bathroom? Don’t ignore these symptoms – you just might have a humidity problem in your home.
What do you know about the less tangible air quality of your home, and how it compares to others in your neighbourhood? Your responses to the air in your home may be subtle, or quite pronounced. You might want to examine the air quality of your home if you have experienced: irritation of the eyes, nose, and throat; regular headaches; or, feelings of mental fatigue and lethargy. Let’s review three of the most common situations affecting air quality and some solutions!
Although the snowflakes keep deciding to show up here and there— there is good news. Spring is on it’s way! As a result, it’s the perfect time to start preparing your home to go from operating in the winter to welcoming warming weather (happily too, we may add)!
When the winter weather strikes, and we begin to crank the furnace to keep warm, there might be some noticeable changes to your indoor air quality. The air, as you may have noticed in the winter, is dry! That dry air affects your indoor air quality. It's great to turn the heat up during the winter months, but it can dry you out, literally! A great tool to ease that dryness is to start using a humidifier (or to break it out again). Here are some benefits that come with using a humidifier.
The bathroom sees a fair amount of activity during the day. The obvious uses are of course using the toilet and taking a shower or bath. These two daily activities can be quite wearing on your bathroom walls and your home. A proper ventilation system will not only save your home’s structure, but it will help eliminate any excess gases in the air—of the humid and odorous type.
