Fall is the favorite season of the year for
With fall quickly coming to a close, most homeowners are scrambling to make use of the little time they have left before winter arrives in earnest to get things in order around their homes. With the upcoming holidays, it's likely that you have filled up your to-do list for the next month or so. Even though you might already have your hands full getting things ready around your home for the upcoming holidays, it is important to make sure you take a little bit of time and think about the quality of life you and your family are going to have inside your home during the upcoming winter season.Unless you and your family are planning on taking an extended vacation this winter, it's likely that you are going to be spending most of your time inside your home over the coming months, and as such, it is important to think about the quality of the air you all are going to be breathing in on a near constant basis. If you and your family are stuck breathing in air that is heavy with dust, dirt, and other contaminants, you could be in for a rough holiday season. In an effort to help you and your family breathe a bit easier this coming winter, our team of professionals have taken the time to put together this short list highlight a few helpful tips we have compiled to help you improve the indoor air quality of your home in preparation of this coming winter.
Open Your Windows
Right now, the weather in general is a great deal more mild than at most other times of the year. While we usually don't have to deal with frigid temperatures even during the middle of winter here in the Lafayette area, the weather is set to get a little bit colder than most homeowners find comfortable, and with the lower humidity we see during the fall months, now is the perfect time to open up your windows and let in a bit of fresh air. Throwing open your windows is even more important while you are doing any holiday prep cleaning, as without somewhere to go, all of that dust and dirt in coming out of your carpets and off your floors is more likely to end up on the various surfaces around your home and inside the air ducts of your heating and cooling system throughout your home. Opening up your windows now will give your home a little bit of extra ventilation before you need to close everything up once again as the temperatures start getting lower in the coming months.
Get A Heating Tune Up
As the temperatures start to drop lower and lower in the next couple months, your heating system is likely going to be getting more and more frequent use. If you haven't already, now is the time to make sure that your heating system is in the kind of shape needed to make it through the upcoming holiday season without falling victim to any number of common heating issues that tend to spring up during that time. The winter months can be pretty brutal on your heating system, and right now, before winter really starts to show its teeth is the time to have a professional come out and make sure that everything in your heating system is working like it should be. The money you spend now on having your system professionally tuned up can be a fraction of what you might find yourself spending if your system were to suffer a breakdown in the middle of the next couple months.
