How can you create a healthy home environment? →
Here are a few tips.
  1. Install air conditioning so windows and doors aren't the only source of fresh air. By keeping windows and doors closed and air conditioning on, you can help prevent the entry of pollens and other outdoor allergens into the home.
  2. Change furnace and air conditioning filters every two or three months, as recommended by the manufacturer.
Install and use exhaust fans that are vented to the outdoors in kitchens and bathrooms. Also vent clothes' dryers outdoors. Eliminating the resulting moisture helps reduce mould growth.
