Winter is almost here and it is important to pay attention to your indoor air quality. Not only to reduce the risk of the flu, but also to create awareness about habits that lower the indoor air quality of your space. Take a quick look at our top 8 tips to improve your indoor air in winter.

Do not stop ventilating

In winter, because it is cold outside, you may be tempted to stop ventilating. However, for healthy indoor air, it is necessary to ventilate regularly. Provide a continuous supply of fresh air through open ventilation grilles and / or (flap) windows and ensure that the air can flow through the house, via the space under the interior doors or grilles in interior doors and walls. The outside air will reduce your CO2 levels and make you feel less sleepy, dizzy and tired.

Reduce the use of fireplaces

In the winter, full use is made of fireplaces. Fireplaces and open fires, however, are major sources of fine dust. Fine dust is harmful to your health and causes allergies, cardiovascular diseases, asthma, respiratory tract irritation, strokes and even cancer. It is therefore strongly advisable to reduce the amount of particulate matter that you ingest by reducing or avoiding the use of fireplaces or by implementing air filters in your home or workplace.

Keep your humidity level

Humidity will decrease in the fall and winter, making it easier for viruses to spread. By maintaining the humidity in your room, between 35-70%, you increase the comfort in the room and reduce the risk of disease spreading such as the flu.

Living Healthier

It is also important to consider the fact that you are more in your home than outside. You no longer go out for lunch or read a book. The children are also more indoors. This makes it even more important to keep the home good and livable. Ventilation all year round is important.

When it is winter, however, it is a lot colder. We understand that you do not leave the windows wide open. The stove can also be switched on, more candles are burning and therefore there is less fresh air in the house. Plants provide extra fresh air. However, it is not optimal fresh air. It is not pure air. Homes are becoming too much and too well insulated these days. It is therefore important to do that little bit extra.

Why you should install air purifier at home

Winter is upon us. The windows close and the heating turns on. We can't imagine summer until the first cold days of the year start. The candles go on, the cosines and warmth come into the house. You pick up your winter duvet or an extra blanket. It is important to provide extra ventilation through air filtration products. This is not a pleasant way if the air quality is bad. The cooking water and the moisture from showering stay in the house longer.

Operation and advantages Air Filters
An air filter is a so-called electrostatic system. You can read below how this system works and what the advantages are.

  • The air is optimally ionized just before it is blown through the air filter.
  • This charges all particles and sticks to the filter like a magnet.
  • Clean air comes through the filter.

The advantages

  • Air filters have an open structure that never clogs.
  • Most of the air filter products have a very low energy consumption. Yes, some air filters absorb little moisture and continue to work equally efficiently throughout the entire service life.

Smart ionization
Ionization is not new in itself, but air filtration product apply this technique in a particularly smart way. With advanced air filtration products, the charged particles do not get further than the filter, so that no ozone is released at all.
