How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

February 11, 2016

Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Booneville you know that’s often not an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

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 your home’s indoor air quality. 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 good place to start. If anyone in your home 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 improving your indoor air quality. It fights all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. All of these things have been found 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 take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat harmful toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’d like to enlist some plant life to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study identified the ideal plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, double-check and make sure any plants you bring into 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 incredible for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
