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. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Norco and St. Charles Parish you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Mayeuxs AC & Heating has some tips to enhance 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. 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 wonderful place to start. If anyone in your home 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 three pollutants have been shown 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. As we all learned in science class, plants take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also combat 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 identified the best plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, double-check and make sure any plants you introduce to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to try a bite.
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 create a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we all know, opening windows isn’t always an option, we offer a variety of ventilation solutions to boost your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
