It’s #WildfireSeason in many places across Canada.
Keep breathing well by making indoor air more breathable.
The best way to protect against the potentially harmful effects of wildfire is to find cleaner air. This can be challenging as many public places may still have restrictions in place during the pandemic. Here are some tips to create clean air at home :
• Use a portable HEPA air purifier in one or more rooms. Run it continuously with doors and windows closed.
• Whenever possible, use air conditioners, heat pumps, evaporative coolers, fans and window shades to keep your cleaner air space comfortably cool on hot days.
• If you have a forced air system in your home, talk to your service provider about different filters and settings that can be used to reduce indoor smoke.
