Everyone has been hyperaware of coughs and sore throats this year, but did you know that some common winter respiratory issues could be caused by poor indoor air quality? Poor indoor air quality can cause and worsen respiratory irritation. But don’t worry, there’s good news: John’s Oil is here to help you improve the air quality on your North Shore, MA home, promoting a safer and more comfortable environment for your family to enjoy while you spend more time at home than normal.
The Clean Air Trifecta
Here are three easy things you can do to improve the indoor air quality in your home, promoting comfort and health for your family in 2021!
What to Do: Purchase a Carbon Monoxide Detector
While all homes these days are equipped with smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors are just as important. The alarm can plug into any outlet in your home, and beeps loudly if it detects dangerous carbon monoxide gas.
How to Do It: Swing by your local hardware store and ask for a residential carbon monoxide detector. Bring it home and follow the instructions to install it near your home’s bedrooms or living area.
What to Do: Book a Furnace Tune-Up
Booking an annual tune-up for your heating equipment is one of the most efficient ways to improve the quality of air in your home. Tune-ups include the cleaning or replacement of air filters, which do most of the work in catching airborne particles in your home’s air. Plus, tune-ups can boost your fuel efficiency and increase the reliability of your boiler or furnace.
How to Do It: Call John’s Oil and request a tune-up of your furnace or boiler. We’ll clean or replace your system’s air filters, contributing significantly to your air quality improvement.
What to Do: Dust & Vacuum Regularly
Keeping up with household chores that reduce the buildup of dander, dust, and pollen will significantly improve the air quality in your North Shore, Massachusetts home. The fewer airborne particles, the better the air will be for your family to breathe.
How to Do It: If it’s not yet part of your weekly routine, write it on your calendar or set a reminder in your smartphone.
