Vacuuming carpet to improve air quality

How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be dangerous. 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. It would be nice if every day was the kind of day where you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Denver you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you’d rather not open the windows, the team at Northglenn Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc. 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. It is surprising what a difference 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 great 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 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. 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 you may recall from science class, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous 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 bring into to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to conduct a taste test.

Ventilate Your Home

In order to make homes more energy-efficient, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is amazing for energy-efficiency, the lack of ventilation can cause a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned previously, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
