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. We wish the weather were always nice enough that you could open the windows and let in some fresh air, but living in Lodi you know that’s often not an option. For those days when the weather doesn’t allow you to open the windows, the team at Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning 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 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 great 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 enhancing your indoor air quality. It fights all three types of pollutants which are: airborne particles, germs and bacteria along with chemical odors and vapors. These three pollutants have been shown to aggravate those of us with asthma and allergies.

Get Help from Mother Nature

Let mother nature lend you a hand 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 battle harmful toxins contained within your home such as: formaldehyde, trichloroethylene and benzene.

If you’d like add some plants to fight your pollutants, read the Clean Air Study conducted by NASA. The study figured out the optimal plants for such an important task. If you have any pets, double-check and make sure any plants you bring into to your home are not harmful if your pets decide to conduct a taste test.

Ventilate Your Home

In working to make homes more energy-efficient, today’s homes are being built to keep the outdoor air outside. While this is awesome for energy-efficiency, the lack 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 variety of ventilation solutions to improve your indoor air quality and keep your indoor air feeling fresh.
