Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate 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 a dream to always have the kind of weather where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Muskogee you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc. has some tips to enhance your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, consider purchasing 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 once a 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 great 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 your indoor air quality needs. It eradicates 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
Give mother nature a chance to help you out and purify your air in a natural way. Science class taught us, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat 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 figured out the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, 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, contemporary homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, 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.
