Are you concerned about the indoor air quality in Atascocita this winter? Feel free to call the Atascocita heating specialists at KAC Express if you need indoor air quality or heating services. Many customers ask us how the air quality in your home affects your heating system. Here are some ways in which they are related.

Your heating system and indoor air quality actually affect each other. When you turn your heater on in the winter, you may notice that the air feels dry. If it feels too dry, this can cause skin and sinus irritations. Installing a whole-home humidifier can help. Room humidifiers only add moisture to the air in a specific area, and they can add too much moisture, which creates other issues.

If the air inside your home is too dry, it can also feel colder, so if also feels colder, and this causes some people to turn up the thermostat too much. This can increase your heating bill and cause your heater to work harder than it needs too. To improve indoor air quality, you can add an air cleaner, whole-house humidifier, or a UV germicidal light to help filter out indoor air pollutants that get circulated via your HVAC system. Also, it’s a good idea to ask your contractor about ventilation and air sealing. Homes that are too tight may not have enough ventilation.
