Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that the air inside your home can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be nice if every day was the kind of day where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Florissant you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at B & B Heating & Cooling has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, look into buying 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 the quality of air inside your home. Using a quality vacuum once a week will work to combat 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 consider a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for improving your indoor air quality. 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
Mother nature would be happy to help you purify your air in a natural way. As you may recall from science class, plants take in 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’d like add some plants to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined the ideal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you introduce to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to try a bite.
Ventilate Your Home
In working to make homes more energy-efficient, contemporary homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned previously, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
