Monitor humidity levels indoors.
The EPA recommends keeping indoor humidity between 30 and 60 percent. You can measure humidity with a smart thermostat like Nest
Improve air flow in your home.
According to the EPA, as temperatures drop, the air is able to hold less moisture. Without good air flow in your home, that excess moisture may appear on your walls, windows and floors. To increase circulation, open doors between rooms, move furniture away from walls, and open and call your hvac contractor to inspect your ductwork
Install IQA products from your hvac contractor like.
UV lights , Air purifier Knight , Reme-Halo cell etc. contact your hvac contractor for more details.
keep your hvac system up and running properly to prevent high levels of moisture inside your home and regularly system check out and inspections
How important is to replace your air filter.
Replace and maintain air filter is betty important because when your filter gets clogged your system stars having deficiency of air flow though the evaporator coil causing the evaporator coil to freeze and crack creating a refrigerant leak.
An Effective Germicidal UV Air Cleaner Standard Air purifiers have a fundamental flaw. They rely on air being pulled through the unit in order to clean it. This creates an ineffective, high energy cost air purifier. UV TiO2 air purifiers utilize a new generation of technology. UV TiO2 technology does not rely on filters or air passing through the air purifier. This technology simply produces a blanket of redundant oxidizers that not only clean your air, but sanitize surfaces as well eliminating the pollutants.
The stuff floating in the air is 80% dead skin and over 350 different allergy producing air pollutants and contaminants, includingcigarette, cigar and pipe smoke, germs, bacteria, viruses, mold, mildew and fungi, pollen, house dust and dust mites, odors from smoke, pets, mold, mildew, exhaust fumes, food, body sweat, chemical gases (formaldehyde, benzene, etc.) from new carpets, furniture, cleaning products, solvents, furnishings, dry cleaning and construction.
The effects of breathing this allergy producing air pollution include dizziness, irritability, coughing, sneezing, dry eyes, hay fever, allergies, asthma symptoms, sinus problems, ear infections, depression, fatigue, headaches, nausea, breathing problems, respiratory infections, etc.
Physicians are now discovering that the solution to the problems of many of these people is not in medicine but in reducing the pollutants in the air people breathe. But mere filtration is insufficient. Filters can create a breeding ground for pathogens, like molds, bacteria and dust mites and do nothing to combat chemicals or odors.
Medical studies using germicidal ultra-violet air disinfection have proven effective in reducing the spread of tuberculosis, measles, influenza, smallpox, and controlling infection in operating rooms.

Indoor Air Quality
What is mold?
Mold. The very word is enough to make every person concern.
Yes, mold can be good — it's essential in making brie and penicillin, for example, and necessary for the decomposition of organic matter in nature — but it can also be very, very bad, especially when it grows undetected in your home.
Mold spores spread easily and cannot be completely eradicated.
Mold can grow anywhere:
on carpet, clothing, food, paper, and even in places you can't see, such as the backside of drywall, areas inside walls around leaking or condensing pipes, and above ceiling tiles.
Not only is a mold problem difficult and costly to fix, but mold can also produce allergens and irritants (and, rarely, toxins) that may compromise your health.
So what can you do if you're concerned about mold growing in your home?
The key to mold prevention is simple:moisture control.
How does mold enter a home?
Mold spreads by creating reproductive cells called spores and sending them into the environment.
Mold spores are too small to detect with the naked eye. They are everywhere around us and you cannot avoid being exposed to them
Mold spores travel in the air and attach to people's skin, clothing, shoes, shopping bags and belongings. Other ways spores can enter your home invisibly are:
•through open doors and windows
•through your home's heating and air conditioning system
•on the fur of a pet

The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) recommends the use of ultraviolet light with simultaneous use of HEPA air filters.
The U.S. government now specifies that UV light should be used in air handling units to improve indoor air quality in government buildings, by controlling airborne and surface microbial growth.
The Air Institute of Respiratory Education suggests UV lights be used in buildings for indoor air quality purposes, and states that may be the final line of defense against those diseases that have developed resistance to drugs, such as tuberculosis and others.
According to the Aerobiological Engineering Dept. at Penn State University, the ultraviolet component of sunlight is the main reason microbes die in the outdoor air. The die-off rate in the outdoors varies from one pathogen to another, but can be anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes for a 90-99% kill of viruses or contagious bacteria.
The Centers of Disease Control (CDC) recommends UV lights in homeless shelters to prevent the spread of disease, particularly TB (tuberculosis).
A study by Air & Waste Management Association found the combination of a HEPA air filter and germicidal UV lamp reduced bacteria by 80% in a 3072 cubic foot chamber.
