Tips to Get Healthier in 2017 Published on January 06, 2017 Every year, around this time, people make a promise to themselves to become healthy. This usually means buying a gym membership and avoiding chocolate – at least for a few weeks. But while eating healthy matters, every so often people forget the several other ways they can stay healthy. Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple tips to help you become healthier in 2017. Get Your Ducts in a Row You can eat all the broccoli you want and run 10 miles a day – but if you’re not breathing clean air, you aren’t going to be healthy. Kick off the year with an air duct cleaning from Barlow Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. The better part of the air in your home arrives through your air ducts, and those ducts get dirty over time with microbes, mildew, and bacteria, as well as dirt and dust. Routine cleanings can help make sure the air you are breathing is safe and healthy. Ditch the Toxins It’s not spring yet, but it’s never too soon to consider how you’re cleaning your home – and what you’re inhaling when you do. Apple cider vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils are all great ways to clean your home safely and without the exacerbating toxins that could cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Install a UV Light It’s the time of year for colds and flu, and with that comes cold and flu germs. Help ensure your home is germ-free with an Ultraviolet Germicidal Light. These machines safely produce the highest UV light intensity available, working to help lower the spread of airborne germs and even help terminate further buildup of germs in your home and inside your heating and cooling system. Vacuum Dust can set off allergies and asthma, making vacuuming a vital routine for anyone suffering from respiratory illness. Getting the perfect vacuum and using it daily can help reduce the allergens in your home, helping to keep your family healthy. We can’t clean your home but we can clean your air!
