How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that indoor 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 Jefferson City you know that’s rarely an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Stieferman Heating Company Inc has some tips to improve your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, consider purchasing 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 the quality of air inside 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 good 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 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 are the pollutants known to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Mother nature would be happy to help you 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 combat harmful toxins contained 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 optimal 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 conduct a taste test.

Ventilate Your Home

In order to make homes more energy-efficient, modern homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is incredible 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 wide range of ventilation solutions to improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
