How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Air Quality

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 nice if every day was the kind of day where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Rock Hill you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at US Air Heating and Cooling has some tips to enhance your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

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 air quality of your home. Using a quality vacuum once a week 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 improving 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 three pollutants have been shown to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Give mother nature a chance to help you out 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 fight off dangerous toxins within 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 figured out the best plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, double-check and make sure any plants you add to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to snack on them.

Ventilate Your Home

In an effort 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 absence of ventilation can cause 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 boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
