Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that your home’s air 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 Greensburg you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Wallpe Heating & Cooling has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, consider investing in a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It is surprising what an improvement a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Using a quality vacuum each week will work to fight off allergens and dust that collects in your carpets and furniture.
Of course your vacuum can’t pick up everything, but it’s a great place to start. If you have someone in your home that is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to look into a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for improving your indoor air quality. It eradicates 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
Mother nature would be happy to help you purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in science class, plants absorb 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’re looking into adding some foliage to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you bring into 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, modern homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the lack 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 improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
