Keeping Up With The Seasons
Living in the Northeast means we get to experience all four great seasons – from the warm spring breeze to the heat and humidity of summer to colorful, cool autumns to the winter frost and snow.
Fortunately, Carrier HVAC indoor air quality products can help keep us comfortable, and most importantly … healthy all year long.
During the winter, the cold air can really dry out your home causing static electricity, dry, itchy skin, and exacerbating health issues. In addition, dry indoor air may cause cracking and splitting in hardwood floors and damage your wood furniture and cabinetry. That’s because the dry air is pulling moisture from everything in your home – including you!
Consider a Carrier whole-home humidifier. These units attach directly to your forced air heating system. You set the level (normally between 30 and 50 percent) and it does the rest.
Conversely, summer air may be more humid allowing mold and mildew to grow. If you notice a musty smell or odor in a room, you could be breathing unhealthy airborne mold spores. Ask one of our experts about adding a dehumidifier to your system. They are available in two sizes so if you need a whole-home solution or just have a humid basement, you’ll have exactly what you need.
Did you know that indoor air can be up to five times dirtier than outdoor air? For clean air year-round, check out your options for an air purifier or air cleaner. Carrier’s state-of-the-art purifier system traps and kills bacteria, allergens, pet dander, viruses, smoke, and other pollutants. Air purifiers also leave your home smelling fresh and the air quality is much more healthy for your family.
