Home Girls: Have you considered the quality of air inside your home?

Even with the house closed up tight, keep your indoor air quality tip top

From Home Girl Linda (Reinke) Williford, 206-399-3349

It's March, and you have probably been running the furnace since October and haven't opened the windows in ages. Translation: your home's atmosphere is pretty stale. So, if you're not a fan of persistent dry coughs and other allergy symptoms, follow these helpful tips to keep your indoor air quality tip top.

  • Change your furnace filters regularly: not only does a clean furnace filter improve the performance and life of your furnace, it also helps get rid of annoying allergens.
  • Use a humidifier: dry air is uncomfortable air, especially in the winter. In addition to aggravating symptoms for allergy and asthma sufferers, it wreaks havoc on wood furniture and flooring.
  • Clean out your air ducts: ever want to know where dust bunnies sleep? Check your air ducts and you'll have your answer.
If you ask us, those options sure beat buying a bubble to roll around in, though that'd be pretty cool. Until summer anyway, those bubbles really trap the heat...
