Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Hamilton you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Carefree Heating and Cooling, LLC has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, consider purchasing a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking what an improvement a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Using a quality vacuum once a week will work to battle allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.
Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a wonderful place to start. If someone in your family is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to think about getting a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for your indoor air quality needs. It destroys all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These are the pollutants known to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.
Get Help from Mother Nature
Let mother nature lend you a hand and purify your air in a natural way. As you may recall from science class, plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also battle harmful toxins found inside your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.
If you’re looking into adding some foliage to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study figured out the best plants for such an important task. If you have any furry family members, double-check and make sure any plants you introduce to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to snack on them.
Ventilate Your Home
In working to make homes more energy-efficient, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can cause a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
