With warmer temperatures barely hanging on, it may not be time to run your furnace full-time just yet. However, you can expect this to change in the near future, as temperatures dip in the weeks to come.
While your furnace goes a long way in keeping you warm, it could also be recycling particles through the air in your home.
Modern homes are better sealed than ever before, meaning that there’s little air leaking in from the outdoors. This saves you money on the cost of heating your home, but it also reduces the amount of fresh air entering and circulating.
Many types of particles can be recycled throughout your home, including but not limited to pet dander, mold spores, and bacteria. Not only can these affect your health, but it can also do the same to your home.
If you’re concerned about the quality of your air during the fall and winter months, consider installing a whole house filtration system. This reduces the number of particles in your home, thus having a positive impact on your health and living environment as a whole.
