From getting better sleep to dealing with the winter cold, here are 3 of the top tips to keep your home as healthy as possible this autumn and winter.

From poor ability to heat the home to making the cold and flu linger longer than necessary, getting a humidifier can help the problem. Humidifers can provide an effective, efficient and sustainable solution that can work to add vapor back into the air throughout your home.

Cool down the temperature at night for better sleep

Many of us take advantage of our programmable thermostats in the summer or possibly when we go away on vacation. But did you realize you can simply set your thermostat for a lower bedtime temperature, and this small change can actually help improve your sleep?

While it’s different for everyone, having the thermostat turned down at night can help many people actually get a higher quality of sleep…and better sleep means better health!

But just how cold should you set your temperature at night to find optimal sleep but also comfort? According to Time Magazine, having a lower core temperatures help tell the body its time to sleep. Researchers cited found evidence that the ideal temperature at night is around 65 degrees.
