Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and those studies came to the conclusion that the air inside your home 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 Bend you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Tri County Climate Control LLC has some tips to enhance 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 the improvement a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Using a quality vacuum each week will work to battle 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 think about getting a PureAir™ Air Purification System. The PureAir™ is a whole-home solution for enhancing your indoor air quality. It destroys 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 fight off dangerous 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 identified the optimal 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 snack on them.
Ventilate Your Home
In working 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 mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a variety of ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
