Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that indoor air can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than the air in metropolitan cities. It would be a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Wharton you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Faust Air Conditioning and Heating 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. You’d be surprised at 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 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
Mother nature would be happy to help you 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 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 figured out the ideal 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 try a bite.
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 incredible for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can cause 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.
