How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Air Quality

Stagnant air inside your home could be harmful. The EPA has conducted studies and concluded that the air inside your home 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 Tampa Bay you know that’s often not an option. For those days when you can’t open the windows, the team at Langford Cooling has some tips to enhance your indoor air quality and foster a healthier indoor environment.

Keep Clean

If you haven’t already, look into buying a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It is surprising the improvement a quality vacuum can make on the quality of air inside your home. Using a quality vacuum once a 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 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 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 take in carbon dioxide and release oxygen. Not only that, but plants can also fight off dangerous 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 determined the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any furry friends, double-check and make sure any plants you add 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 awesome for energy-efficiency, the absence of ventilation can generate 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.

The quality of the air inside your home and your comfort is important to the team at Langford Cooling in Tampa Bay. We will partner with you to help you breathe healthy and breathe easy.
