Girl blowing her nose

Brr, it is getting cold out there! Chances are, you will be relying on your home heating system to keep your home comfortable this season. Did you know that your heating system can affect indoor air quality? This is extremely important; as poor indoor air quality can have a negative impact on your overall health. Below are some things you can do to make to improve indoor air quality.

1. Schedule Maintenance with Air Treatment Company
If you haven’t done so already, schedule routine maintenance with the NATE certified professionals at Air Treatment Company. We will make sure that your furnace is operating properly. If there is an issue with your heating system, we can nip it in the bud before it becomes a major problem.

2. Clean or Replace the Air Filter As Needed
When you turn your furnace on for the first time this season, make sure that the air filter is clean. If it is not, it could have allergens in it that contribute to poor indoor air quality. Be sure to replace it with a clean HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter.

3. Get Your Duct Work In A Row
When your duct work is out of sight, it is usually out of mind. When ducts are not properly cleaned and cared for, they can circulate unfiltered air throughout your home. At Air Treatment Company, we have solved duct and venting problems for the toughest situations.

If you suspect that your home has fallen victim to poor indoor air quality, do not hesitate to contact the professionals at Air Treatment Company. We can complete a thorough inspection of your home and get to the source of the problem. Call (703) 270-0881 to schedule an appointment.
