Indoor Air Quality
Another important factor in indoor air quality is humidification. The recommended indoor humidity levels in winter should be around 30 to 40%. Wintry cold air holds less moisture, and when it is heated indoors becomes even drier, setting the stage for itchy dry skin, sinus attacks, dry eyes, and the like. We like to suggest a steam humidifier as it is more efficient in providing humidification.

Heat Recovery Ventilator
The essence of proper ventilation is a continuous flow of clean, fresh air as well as the removal of stale, polluted air. These are also key factors in optimal indoor air quality and good health. By simply changing the air in the home we can expel excess moisture created by cooking, cleaning, and breathing, and other sources, greatly reducing condensation and preventing mold and mildew. All of the incoming air is filtered to remove dust, pollens, and other contaminants and at the same time, VOCs (Volatile organic compounds) and odors of all types are expelled from the house, making your home fresher and healthier.
While your thinking of replacing components of your heating system, may we suggest that you consider an HRV. (Heat Recovery Ventilator)
