Petri Plumbing & Heating encourages proper indoor air quality for winter comfort
Ensure a healthy home by following tips from Brooklyn’s leading HVAC and plumbing company
NEW YORK – Nov. 4, 2020 – Petri Plumbing & Heating, a family-owned home services company in Brooklyn, encourages area homeowners to maintain proper indoor air quality (IAQ) heading into the winter months to ensure families have a safe, comfortable home when spending more time indoors.
“With most families still limiting pubic exposure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the cooler weather will only add to keeping families indoors for longer periods of time,” said Michael Petri, owner of Petri Plumbing & Heating. “So, it is extremely important to take steps to ensure clean, healthy air and protect the comfort of all those in the home.”
Petri advises homeowners to take basic precautions to ensure they maintain healthy IAQ:
- Clean house: Regularly sweeping and vacuuming will help collect and remove pet hair and other irritants. Clean bed, bath and kitchen linens often. Be sure to reduce clutter to prevent dust and dander accumulation. Keep damp areas dry to fight mold.
- Keep proper ventilation: Many home heating and cooling systems don’t bring fresh air into the house. Open the windows occasionally, when weather permits, to let in fresh air. Turn on fans, and use bath and kitchen exhausts to remove grease and odors.
- Invest in an air purifier: Air purifiers are designed to filter the air in a single room or area. Portable air cleaners and HVAC filters can reduce indoor air pollution. Two common options for air purifiers are single-room units and whole-home systems.
“Improving your IAQ will help rid your home of indoor air pollutants, like pet dander, dust and excessive moisture, which could help you breathe easier when indoors,” Petri said. “With no end to COVID in sight, following these tips will ensure everyone in your home has clean air to breath while inside.”
