How Can I Improve My Indoor Air Quality?

Stagnant air inside your home could be unhealthy. The EPA has conducted studies and the results of those studies indicate that indoor 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 West Palm Beach you know that’s not usually an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Kyzar 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, look into buying a vacuum with a HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Arrestance) filter, strong suction and also rotating brushes. It’s shocking what a difference a quality vacuum can make on your home’s indoor air quality. 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 you have someone in your home that 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 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. All of these things have been found 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 found inside 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 pets, double-check and make sure any plants you introduce to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to snack on them.

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 amazing for energy-efficiency, the shortage of ventilation can cause a buildup of pollutants inside your home. As we mentioned previously, 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.
