Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that the air inside your home 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 Eastland you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at J & J Air Conditioning has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, look into buying 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 quality of air inside your home. Using a quality vacuum each week 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 you have someone in your home that 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 improving 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
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 battle 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 introduce 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, today’s 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 previously, 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.
