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 Rochester you know that’s often not an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Brogan Heating & AC Inc has some tips to boost 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. You’d be surprised at 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 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 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. 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 we all learned in science class, plants absorb carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous toxins 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 identified the best plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, 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 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 create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned previously, 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.
