How to Improve your Indoor Air Quality

What’s scarier than a horror film? Your indoor air quality! Of course, poor air quality won’t chase you around the house wearing a Halloween mask — but it will linger around inside, which will eventually contaminate your central heating/cooling unit. However, there’s no need to panic, because we have a few wonderful solutions to help rid of this “menace” once and for all:

Invest in an Air Scrubber

Looking to scrub the air clean of invisible pollutants? Look no further than the Air Scrubber Plus®! This excellent device, initially manufactured for NASA, will thoroughly clean the air in your home or business without soap and or a sponge. Specifically, if your space happens to suffer from an array of cigarette smoke, pet dander, or strongly scented cooking, then this device is the one to have — and Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing can make it happen by installing it for you!

The reason why we’re so passionate about the Air Scrubber Plus® is due to its ActivePure™ technology. This scientific breakthrough can transform any environment within minutes, with minimal effort on your end. When one of our licensed technicians from the Mainstream Electric, Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing team installs the Air Scrubber Plus®, you’ll notice a difference right away — and in the years to come! From fresher air to more pleasing smells, you’ll love this indoor air quality-saving device!

Open the Windows

Another great way to improve your indoor air quality is to open the windows. Whether it be the middle of winter or in the heat of the summer, it’s important to take the time to use these incredible features in your home! When you happen to open the windows, it will not only clear any debris from the air, but it will also help relieve some of the odor from your home, too (even if you don’t notice it and become nose-blind)!

Sometimes, one window won’t do the trick — but if you happen to open all of the windows in a room (at once), then it will purify the air in your home instantly! One of the best solutions to speed up the process is to create some cross-ventilation. This simply means to open the windows in the front and back of a room, to create a crossing breeze in your home. Doing this method will give you the clean air that you rightfully deserve — and you’ll notice the difference right away, too!

Keep it Green

In search of a method to keep the air as clean as possible in your home? Then it would be best to opt for eco-friendly cleaning agents, rather than chemical-based cleaners. The reason being is this: chemical cleaners will emit harmful airborne toxins, which will linger around your home — even when you open the windows. This will not only tarnish the air quality, but it will also take a toll on your respiratory health, too.

When you opt for green cleaning solutions, this will take your home and turn it into a safe breathing space. These types of eco-friendly cleaning agents will emit nothing but a clean, fragrant smell — without tarnishing your home. Additionally, since hast chemicals aren’t present, it will preserve your appliances, without stripping them of their details. Once you start using green cleaners, you’ll notice the difference right away — and won’t be tempted to go back to chemical cleaners ever again!

Replace your Air Filter

One of the best ways to maintain your indoor air quality it to change your air filter as often as possible. Sure, you might do this already — but most homeowners overlook this significant detail. If you’re not sure when you should replace your air filter, then it’s best to examine it on a bi-weekly basis. However, if your air filter looks fine upon inspection, then it’s important to know when you installed it. If it was more than three-to-four months ago, then you should replace it immediately.

In the world of air filters, the more frequently you change the filter, the better your central air unit will function. Of course, there is the possibility that if you have pets, you might have to change it every 60 days (approximately three months) — but that will only improve your indoor air quality and not diminish it. When you do go change your air filter, you’ll then notice a pleasant difference within minutes — and, of course, you’ll thank yourself in the long run!
