With the winter season fast approaching and the colder air passing by, now is the perfect time to prep to avoid dry skin. While buying lotion and creams can help you avoid cracked skin this winter, you can get more bang for your buck by taking care of your HVAC system! Here is how routine maintenance of your HVAC system can help you reap the benefits of much clearer and healthier skin!


Clean Filters And Your Skin

We know how annoying it can be to clean your filters now and then, but we cannot stress its importance to your health! Regularly cleaning your air filters can help deter mold growth, which not only can wreak havoc on your lungs, but who cares about lung health right now. Dirty air filters can impact your looks! Mold exposure can cause flu-like symptoms like congestion that will make your skin look awful.


Additionally, some people can have allergic reactions that cause rashes or inflammation, making your skin look a mess. Imagine showing up to your holiday dinner with a rash and puffy skin because you forgot to clean your filters? Well, leave that situation for your imagination and take the time to get some early spring cleaning done today.


Air Balancing Benefits

Homeowners can overlook the airflow in their homes and keep track of any negative air pressure. Poor airflow can signify your HVAC system having some issues that luckily can easily be repaired. By getting your home air balanced, you can have better ventilation and airflow to help with your sleep. Nothing can help your skin better and avoid crow’s feet than getting better quality sleep, instead of sleep where you’re waking up every thirty minutes because of poor air quality.


Upgrades And Repair To Help Your Skin

With the colder season here, the biggest damage your skin can face at home is the constant exposure to cold air. Cold air can cause dry skin and atopical dermatitis that can look unpleasant around guests. Thankfully the best way to help stop your skin from cracking this winter is by having your HVAC system inspected to make sure your heat works!


While keeping your home warm helps, the next issue is dry air. Luckily, we recommend looking into a humidifier. Humidifiers in the winter can help cut down on dry air that will cause your skin to flake and crack and even stop that annoying winter nose bleed.
