Your Health & Comfort During these Unique Times
We’re living in uniquely challenging times and we know you’re doing all you can to care for yourself and your family during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As you and your family continue to practice social distancing, your home comfort has never mattered more. As we are all spending more time indoors, the air quality, and not just the temperature, can make a difference in how you feel. Read up on simple steps you can take today to take care of your air.
1. Keep The Air Circulating in Your Home – It’s important to keep the air circulating through your home so your family is breathing fresh, clean air.
To do this, turn on the circulate feature on your thermostat to keep the air moving through your filtration system. This will ensure the air is flowing through the filter and getting cleaned more often.
2. Replace or Upgrade Your Filter – You should already change your filters on a seasonal-basis to reduce the amount of dust and allergens in your air, but now is a good time to make sure your filter is clean and if not, consider an upgrade to a higher-efficiency filter.
When looking at air filters, you should look at the MERV rating, or Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value. This measures how successfully it filters pollutants. The higher the MERV rating, the higher the percentage of small-sized particles that are trapped by the filter.
3. Get Your Best Night’s Sleep - There’s a direct correlation between your body’s temperature and sleep cycle. Research suggests that the ideal condition for sleep sits somewhere between 60 and 67 degrees.
If that seems on the cool side, there’s a reason: your core body temperature drops to a lower level during sleep. An overly warm temperature interferes with your brain’s messages that it’s time to get some shut-eye.
