Improving Your Indoor Air Quality in Winter

Monday, October 3rd, 2022

It’s important to know that your indoor air quality during the winter has its own challenges that are different from the warmer months. When it’s cold outside, you tend to keep your home closed up for longer to prevent the cool air from getting in. This means that you have less ventilation and opportunity for fresh air to get in.

Contaminants like bacteria, mold, and viruses can fester and spread through your home, recirculating each day. The air in your home can also get dry and feel even colder with less humidity in the air. If you’re concerned with your home’s air filtration in Tacoma, WA, our team can help.
