Now is more pertinent than ever to be mindful of your home’s indoor air quality. The air that you and your family breathe in on a daily basis can take a toll on your mood and your health without your knowledge. There are many factors that contribute to poor indoor air quality, including outdoor pollution, poor building materials, or emissions from your indoor appliances.
Whether you’ve done a home air quality test to determine how bad your air quality is or you’re simply ready to take the steps toward a healthier lifestyle, here are some tips from our heating and cooling company.
Airflow is one of the most important factors to improve your indoor air quality. If your air is stagnant, there’s no opportunity for the air quality to improve. While it’s an option to simply open up the windows to create more airflow, doing so in the middle of Chicago might not result in cleaner air. We offer products that can help ventilate and improve your air quality as well! If you’re interested in learning about our ventilation products, get in touch with one of our team members!
Clean Your Sheets & Clothes Often
Did you know that dust mites are one of the leading causes of poor indoor air quality? Dust mites live on your sheets and on your clothing. They easily irritate your nose and your throat, resulting in tiredness and lethargy. In order to keep dust mites to a minimum, wash your clothes and your sheets often. This also helps reduce the buildup of pet hair if you have a furry friend running around.
If you have a green thumb, bring your love for plants inside. Certain houseplants are an easy way to remove toxins from your home while also providing oxygen. Good examples include bamboo palm, English ivy, gerbera daisy and red-edged dracaena.
