Tips to Get Healthier in 2017 Published on January 06, 2017 Every year, right about now, people make a vow to themselves to be healthy. This usually means buying a gym membership and saying no to chocolate – at least for a few weeks. But while a healthy eating habit matters, occasionally people forget the many other ways they can stay healthy. Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a couple tips to help you get healthier in the New Year. Get Your Ducts in a Row You can eat all the vegetables you want and run 10 miles a day – but if your home doesn’t have clean air for your to breathe, you aren’t going to be healthy. Begin the year with an air duct cleaning from Mountainwest Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning. The majority of the air in your home enters through your air ducts, and those ducts get dirty over time with microbes, mildew, and bacteria, as well as dirt and dust. Regular cleanings can help make sure the air in your home is safe and healthy. Ditch the Toxins It’s not quite spring, 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 wonderful ways to clean your home safely and without the exacerbating toxins that might cause headaches, nausea, and respiratory issues. Install a UV Light It’s the time of year for colds and flu, and with that brings cold and flu germs. Help ensure your home is germ-free with an Ultraviolet Germicidal Light. These appliances safely give off the highest UV light intensity available, working to help decrease the spread of airborne germs and even help terminate further accumulation of germs in your home and inside your heating and air conditioning system. Vacuum Dust can set off allergies and asthma, making vacuuming a vital routine for anyone who suffers from respiratory illness. Getting the right 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!
