The winter can leave you bundled indoors with the windows and doors shut tight. The air can then become stagnant, and your air quality will suffer. Opening a window hear, and there will increase circulation and improve your air quality.
Change Your Filters
A dirty air filter or neglected air ducts could lead to dust and allergens being forced around your home with might. To make sure you're always blocking and stopping dust and dander and other allergy based things from blowing around your home, keep up with regular air filter changes.
Consider Ditching the Ducts
