How Your Indoor Environment Changes with the Seasons

Posted by John on September 21st, 2008

Cold weather will be here soon, and as the outdoor environment changes, your indoor environment will change as well.

While dehumidifiers and spot coolers help to maintain a comfortable, healthy indoor environment during the summer, air purifiers, humidifiers, and space heaters provide the essential climate control tools for winter.

air cleaners As temperatures drop, people seal up their homes and spend more time indoors. Pollutants build up, and indoor air quality plummets. That’s why it’s important to have an air purifier to eliminate dust, germs, allergens, and other forms of air pollution. If you have a fireplace or wood-burning stove, we suggest a smoke eater air purifier because wood smoke can be just as dangerous as cigarette smoke.

portable heater As fuel costs continue to rise, portable heaters are becoming more popular. Why heat your whole house if you only need to heat one or two rooms? Energy-efficient space heaters work quickly and save you money on heating bills.

humidifiersHumidifiers can lower heating bills, too. Humidifiers add moisture to dry, winter air, and this moisture retains heat better, making the environment warmer and more comfortable. Humidifiers also soothe inflamed sinuses, dry skin, and cracked lips.

Prepare for this winter early, and you’ll save money while enjoying a healthier, more comfortable indoor environment.
