Why You Need Clean Air, and the 3 Best Ways to Get it

The best air to surround yourself with is fresh, clean air. Quality air cleanses your lungs and brings more oxygen to the cells in your body leading to the overall better physical, and mental health of your family.

We like to think that San Diego has an abundance of clean, fresh, outdoor air, but the fact is, that San Diego received an “F” ranking on the top 25 list for most polluted cities in the U.S. according to American Lung Association’s “State of the Air 2016. 

Even if San Diego’s air quality had a top ranking, the reality is that work schedules and other indoor obligations require that we spend a large part of our days inside of our homes, and offices. This is why we should all make indoor air quality a priority.

Here are 3 tips you can do to improve the air quality in your homes:

  1. Get a plant

Yes, it can be as simple as it sounds. Plants purify indoor air and look beautiful in homes if maintained properly. Live Science states,  “Scientists have found that Japanese royal ferns, peace lilies and aloe vera are just a few plants that can best purify your air conditions.”

  1. Make sure your air conditioner is being maintained:

Pacific Heating & Air Conditioning Inc. in San Diego has maintenance packages that can assist you in keeping your indoor air clean and healthy at an affordable price.

  1. Have your carpets cleaned regularly

Carpets work as a filter for debris and pollutants in the air, so it is imperative that you schedule a deep clean of your carpets twice a year. Vacuuming a few times per week can also help keep indoor pollutants at a minimum. Don’t forget to also change and clean your vacuum bags often.

Never underestimate the power of clean air in and out of your homes! The health of you and your family are counting on it!
