It’s wintertime in south Louisiana. While it may not be as cold here as other parts of the state, it can still get chilly enough to be unpleasant. Also, most of our holidays are in the winter, making it a prime time for visiting with families and friends.
Thus, you’ll find many families in Louisiana spending more time indoors on average during the winter months than any other time in the year.
If you’re one of those families that will be holed up inside most of this winter, why not look for ways to make this time as enjoyable as possible?
One of the most obvious places to start is the part of the home that is every room, crevice and more: The air.
Air Quality Indoors
You may not think about the quality of the air in your home too much until there is a problem.
One such problem – one which is very common this time of year – is indoor allergies. You or a loved one may have been diagnosed with mold or dust allergies, which include symptoms such as watery eyes, rashes, headaches and difficulty breathing.
Spending more time indoors can be a direct cause of the very allergies affecting your family. This is because human activity can stir up these allergens from the carpet and other surfaces, or cause mold spores to form by introducing water to the air when using the shower or washing dishes.
You can clean every surface and vacuum every floor, but once dust, mold spores and bacteria are introduced to your home’s indoor air, it’s hard to truly remove them without some kind of help. (More on that in a moment.)
Another issue you may find in the wintertime is your set of utility bills. We’re not talking only about the additional cost of natural gas for heating; another utility that can go up is the electricity bill.
This can be due to your home’s existing air filtration system going into overdrive to filter out all the new dust and mold particles being created by there being more people inside than usual. You also likely will need to replace air filters more frequently to keep up with the additional particles in the air.
Advanced Air Filtration
To combat these allergens in the air – and reduce your air filtration costs – you need an advanced air filtration system capable of removing harmful particles from the air while running more efficiently than your standard-fare filterer.
That’s why we recommend the Trane CleanEffects Air Cleaner for your home this winter. Not only is this system more energy efficient than similar air filterers – requiring less energy and no additional filters to buy – it’s also one of the most advanced.
Trane’s product promises to remove more than 99% of harmful airborne particles that can cause allergies or illnesses while making air fresher and easier to breathe.
Benefits of advanced air filtration systems such as Trane CleanEffects include the following:
- More air makes it through the filter, reducing pressure drop and filtering the air much faster
- Less environmental burden than other filterers
- Can also capture illness-causing bacteria
- Makes air fresher, easier to breathe
