How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. 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. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Alice 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 Rescue Heating & Air has some tips to boost your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider purchasing 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. Vacuuming once a week with a quality vacuum 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 anyone in your home is suffering from allergies or other respiratory problems you may want to look into 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. 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. As we all learned in science class, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat harmful toxins found inside 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 introduce 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 amazing for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, 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.
