Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded 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 Georgetown you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Miller Climate Control LLC has some tips to boost 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. You’d be surprised at what a difference a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. Using a quality vacuum once a 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 great place to start. If someone in your family 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 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. Science class taught us, plants consume carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also battle harmful toxins found inside 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 best plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, 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 awesome for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned previously, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a variety of ventilation solutions to enhance your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
The quality of the air inside your home and your comfort is important to the team at Miller Climate Control LLC in Georgetown. We will work to help you breathe healthy and breathe easy.
