Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. 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. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Marshfield you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at House of Heating Incorporated 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 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 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 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 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
Let mother nature lend you a hand and purify your air in a natural way. Science class taught us, 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 figured out the best 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 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 amazing for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can generate 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 improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
