Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. 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 Central Point you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Titan Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips to improve 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 what a difference a quality vacuum can make on the quality of air inside 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 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 fights 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
Let mother nature lend you a hand and purify your air in a natural way. As we all learned in science class, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous 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 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 conduct a taste test.
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 lack of ventilation can create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, 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.
