How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Air Quality

Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. 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. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Ridgedale and the Branson area you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Branson HVAC, LLC has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider investing in 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 the air quality of 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 someone in your family 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 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. Science class taught us, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat harmful toxins 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 best 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 conduct a taste test.

Ventilate Your Home

In working to make homes more energy-efficient, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the lack 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.
