A Few Tips for Protecting Your Indoor Air Quality Through Cold and Flu Season 

1. Try a UV Germicidal Lamp 

Ultraviolet germicidal lamps focus on microorganisms that help spread illnesses like the flu. Bacteria and similar organic particles are deactivated in strong ultraviolet light, keeping them from lowering your air quality. 

2. Adjust Your Humidity with a Humidifier/Dehumidifier  

Both high and low humidity can cause problems with your air quality. For instance, dry air can bother your skin and sinuses, while moist air may promote mold and mildew. A humidifier or dehumidifier keeps your home’s humidity in better balance for a more comfortable environment. 

3. Wash or Replace Your Air Filters When Necessary 

Your HVAC system’s air filter is a crucial component for both air quality and overall comfort. If you neglect to clean or replace it, you might notice a drop in performance. Older air filters can become clogged, enabling more airborne particles to spread. Specialized filter models like HEPA filters can be ideal for households with allergies or other respiratory concerns. 

4. Track Your IAQ with a Smart Thermostat  

Current HVAC accessories can help you with  more effectively monitoring your home’s air quality. Smart thermostats are an excellent example, and they come packed with beneficial features for further improving your HVAC system. This includes monitoring your air quality.
