Cleaner lungs, fewer allergy symptoms, and improved digestion are just some of the many benefits of inhaling cleaner air. If you need more reasons to upgrade, the list goes on:
- Improved skin appearance
- Decreased risk of arterial, lung, and heart disease
- Stabilized mood
- Improved sleep patterns and quality
- Fewer bad odors
- Fewer pollutants
Indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than the particles outdoors, which is scary, considering humans spend 90% of their time indoors! Fortunately, there are ways you can keep your air clean in your own home.
Prevent mold before it starts to grow
Mold is a fungus that appears when walls and ceilings are damp from condensation or humidity. It produces allergens and sometimes even toxic substances. If a person comes into contact with mold, it can cause severe physical reactions, and commonly asthma attacks.
There are natural remedies you can try, such as white vinegar, which, when sprayed on damp surfaces, prevents mold from growing. You could also bring in purifying plants such as Orchids and English Ivy. In addition, burning beeswax candles releases negative ions into the air, rendering the pollutants harmless.
If mold is already growing in the home, try black mold remover to eliminate it!
Install a New HVAC system
An HVAC unit is a heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system. Installing an electric heat pump furnace in the home is a one-stop-shop to cleaner air! These sophisticated systems inexpensively take care of your home’s air quality and heat levels.
They work by pumping heat from one location to another using a compressor. It attains 300% efficiency and requires little maintenance throughout its long lifespan.
This system’s biggest benefits are its availability (it’s the only dependant on electricity) and its subsequent carbon emission reduction. However, it also provides cleaner air for cleaner skin and lungs and a lower electricity bill than its alternatives. Set it to cool or heat your home and enjoy!
Open the windows
Natural airflow can be a great natural way to eliminate dirty air from the home and replace it with fresh, clean air. Doing this regularly helps to ensure that homeowners can breathe easier and enjoy clean air!
Don’t smoke indoors
Smoking has many associated health risks, and when smoking indoors, 85% of particles breathed out are invisible and odorless. This means that the smoke, although undetectable, lingers in the air with no means of escape.
Smoking indoors isn’t just bad for your lungs; it’s bad for your home!
Test the air quality in your home
Installing a carbon monoxide alarm isn’t just sensible – it can save lives! They detect and alarm homeowners when there is CO present in the air. Carbon monoxide can leak from a number of appliances in the home, such as cooking systems.
You can also have your home tested for Radon – the biggest cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. Like CO, it’s odorless and invisible.
Installing an HVAC system and keeping the home clean and dry are the most effective and effortless ways to get cleaner air in the home! However, natural ventilation, prevention, and maintenance shouldn’t be underestimated.
Give your family and your home the clean air they deserve!
