Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that your home’s 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 Carson City you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Anderson Heating & A/C has some tips to enhance 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 is surprising what a difference a quality vacuum can make on the quality of air inside your home. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum 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 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 fights all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These three pollutants have been shown 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 consume 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 furry family members, 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 order to make homes more energy-efficient, contemporary homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is incredible for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can cause 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.
