It’s been a cold winter so far, and things aren’t likely to warm up in a substantial way for a while yet. You may think that your heater operating reliably means that you’ll at least ride out the season in comfort, but think again. Sure, a great heater that you can count on for consistent output is important. However, you also need to keep the need for great indoor air quality in mind. Good indoor air quality means more than air that is clean and free of pollutants.
It also means air that is sufficiently humidified, and that can be a tougher goal to hit than you may think in the winter. Winter air is always drier than the air that surrounds you in the hot summer season. Add to this initial dryness the fact that you’ve probably got your home sealed up tight to protect energy efficiency, and you start to see where problems can develop.
