Improve Your Indoor Air

As you prepare your home for the winter season, don't overlook the importance of safe indoor air. There are several steps you can take to prepare and keep your home healthy.

1. Get your heating system inspected. It's work a few extra dollars to have the system checked by a trained technician to make sure the system is in good working order and that there are no gas leaks that endanger your family's health and safety. Also, be sure to change the furnace filter.

2. If you don't have a carbon monoxide detector in the home, you should intall one.

3. Take the time to clean your home more frequently to remove dust and allergens from the home, especially if a family member has allergies or asthma. A BEAM Central Vacuum System offers the best way to remove surface allergens because it completrely removes all contacted dust from the living area.

4. Take advantage of whatever mild weather comes your way. Open up a window when you can to let in fresh air.
