Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and those studies came to the conclusion 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 Phoenix you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Dial One Mears Air Conditioning & Heating Inc has some tips to enhance 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. You’d be surprised at what an improvement a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. 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 think about getting a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for enhancing your indoor air quality. It eradicates 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
Give mother nature a chance to help you out and purify your air in a natural way. Science class taught us, 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’re looking into adding some foliage to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined 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 try a bite.
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 amazing 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.
