Some people enjoy the cold weather, but for a great many others, spring can’t get here fast enough. Whatever the case, we all depend on our household furnaces and heating systems to keep our families toasty warm in winter, whether mild or severe.
It’s cold and flu season, and keeping yourself and your family healthy means taking some basic precautions, such as maintaining household cleanliness, washing your hands, and covering your mouth when you cough or sneeze. But one thing that a lot of people don’t think about is their household air quality. Even if you maintain a clean home and change your air filters regularly, your ducts can collect a surprising amount of dust, pet hair, mold, fungi, and bacteria.
We’re all familiar with “Murphy’s Law”, and when it comes to the things that we rely on for our comfort and convenience, such as our cars, utilities, and household appliances, it’s almost certain that they’ll break down at the most inconvenient time possible. But when you get right down to it, is there ever a convenient time for something to break down?
We’re already getting our first taste of winter weather, and if the past several years have been any indication, we’re in store for much worse! Is your home ready?
