Perhaps you read the title of this blog post and thought to yourself, “Why is an HVAC company talking to me about cleaning my house?” Well, because we probably aren’t talking about the kind of cleaning you’re thinking about. A large part of our professional services includes indoor air quality services, such as the installation of air purifiers and filtration systems, humidity balancing systems, and heat and energy recovery ventilators.
Most homeowners don’t realize this, but without the right indoor air quality solutions in place, your indoor air quality can actually be worse than that of outdoors! Fortunately, we have the solutions you need for cleaner, greener air in your home–in translation, healthier air. Read on for a few great tips we have.
Have an Air Purifier Installed
We aren’t just talking about those small, portable air purifiers you can buy at a home supply store. These are great if you just need them for one room or even a small studio apartment, but for true, whole-home air purification, you’ll want to consider a professionally installed air purifier that gets integrated with your HVAC system.
A whole-house air purifier can:
- Eliminate Odors
- Eliminate Contaminants in the Air
- Make Your HVAC Systems More Efficient
- Rid Your Ductwork of Bacteria and Microorganisms (in the case of a UV air purifier)
There are different types of air purifiers on the market, and you may find a combination of a couple that gives you the best results. Reach out to our team to learn more about your options and what might be best for your specific needs.
Maintain Your Indoor Air Quality Products
You should always invest in routine maintenance for your HVAC systems, and this includes your air purifier(s). With maintenance, we can help you ensure that your systems are functioning as efficiently and effectively as they should, and keeping your home clean, green, and comfortable.
Get Some Indoor Plants!
Did you know that your houseplants can purify your indoor air? Especially if you’re replacing artificial plants with them! Think about it–artificial plants collect dust over time, and with all their nooks and crannies, it can be hard to get them thoroughly cleaned off, leaving you susceptible to allergy symptoms.
Houseplants, however, naturally purify the air, and you don’t have to dust them off! They’re actually less maintenance than fake plants when you think about it.
Are you a pet owner?
One thing to keep in mind with houseplants is that some can be toxic when ingested. While it’s easy to keep houseplants out of reach of a small child, it might not be as easy if you have a furry, four-legged companion who likes to jump on high spaces (here’s looking at your cat, moms and dads). Therefore, before you rush out and buy some pretty plants, we encourage you to do your research to see which are pet-safe, and which are not.
