Do you or a loved one suffer from allergies or asthma? If so, it’s important to have clean and filtered air circulating in your Granbury, Texas home. Improve the indoor air quality of your home in cost-effective ways such as using plants, air filters, purifiers and ventilators.
Buy Air-Filtering Plants
An indoor plant can be a cost-effective way to naturally improve indoor air quality. Choose plants that are budget-friendly and easy to care for, like the spider plant. This houseplant loves bright, indirect light and removes pollutants like formaldehyde and benzene from the air. English ivy is another great choice that removes harmful chemicals. It’s a versatile plant that you can leave in the sun or shade.
Change the Air Filters
Air filters catch all the things you don’t want to inhale. The fibers of an efficient filter can catch pet dander, dust, pollen and more. As a result, it prevents these contaminants from recirculating through the HVAC system and breathed into delicate lungs. Remember to change your air filters at least once every 90 days. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, you should change your air filters every month.
Invest in an IAQ Solution
An air purifier or cleaner removes contaminants from the air you breathe inside your home. An air purifier is particularly helpful to those with asthma or allergies as it removes almost 100 percent of common allergens and triggers. A ventilator is worth investing in because you can’t always open your windows for fresh air in Texas. This system works by exchanging stale indoor air with cooled and cleaned outdoor air.
