How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Air Quality

Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that your home’s air 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 Waxahachie you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at C&C Refrigeration 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’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 wonderful 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 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

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 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 identified the ideal 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 try a bite.

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 incredible for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can generate a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned earlier, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer many ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
