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 Laguna Niguel you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Ocean Air Conditioning and Heating has some tips to boost your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, look into buying a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking the improvement a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. Using a quality vacuum each 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 anyone in your home 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 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
Mother nature would be happy to help you 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 battle harmful 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 optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry family members, 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, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is incredible for energy-efficiency, the lack 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 wide range of ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
