21.12.2017; Winter air is a challenge to your health: Cold air holds less moisture and indoor heating makes air extra dry. Sealing your home against drafts and leaks does not solve the problem. Daikin knows – and provides the perfect solutions.
Extra dry: This is what winter air is. But it should not be that way in your home. Just stick to some simple rules - and trust the solutions provided by Daikin.
Vienna, December 21st 2017 – Did you know that despite the occasional snow and the seemingly ever-present rain, wintertime is a fully fledged dry season? As a matter of fact, winter air is a twin challenge to your health: Cold air holds less moisture and indoor heating makes air extra dry. Sealing your home against drafts and leaks does not solve the problem. On the contrary, it makes them worse. Insufficient circulation, overheating and poor air quality lead to infections, flu, itchy skin and never-ending colds.
Yet it is so easy to improve air quality and thereby get your health back under control. Just follow these simple rules.
Let the air circulate
Keep the air flowing. Airing with the windows fully open enables indoor air to be exchanged in the shortest possible time without cooling walls. And it has been proved to be far more effective than tilt ventilating for hours. Make use of the bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans. Whatever you do, keep the air moving.
Keep an eye on your heating appliances. Get them checked and serviced by an expert once a year. Change air filters at least every three years and clean out ducts and chimneys regularly. Not only to reduce energy costs, but to prevent stale air from accumulating.
Control the humidity
Make sure you control the humidity in your home. A humidifier may be a great idea but if it produces too much moisture (more than 40- 55%), it can lead to mold spores and condensation.
Or just rely on Daikin’s solutions to make your life easier. Daikin provides you and your home with fresh and filtered air. And with solutions such as Ururu Sarara, humidity can easily be regulated. Ururu, the smart humidification system, draws in the right amount of moisture from the air outside to prevent uncomfortably dry air inside – while the dehumidification system Sarara works the opposite way. It is so easy, once you have Daikin at your service.
