Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. The EPA has conducted studies and those studies came to the conclusion that your home’s 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 York you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning has some tips to boost your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.
If you haven’t already, consider investing in a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It is surprising what an improvement a quality vacuum can make on the air quality of your home. 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 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 enhancing your indoor air quality. It destroys 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
Let mother nature lend you a hand 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 battle harmful toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.
If you’d like to enlist some plant life to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study determined the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you add to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to conduct a taste test.
Ventilate Your Home
In an effort to make homes more energy-efficient, modern homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can generate 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.
