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 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. 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 Chatsworth you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at True Temp Heating & Air Inc 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 the air quality of your home. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum 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 wonderful place to start. If anyone in your home 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 enhancing 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

Mother nature would be happy to help you purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in 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 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 pets, double-check and make sure any plants you add to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to conduct a taste test.

Ventilate Your Home

In an effort 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 lack of ventilation can cause a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a wide range of ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
