While carbon monoxide and other types of silent gas detectors are more and more common, one thing many homeowners don’t always think about is the overall air quality in their home.
There are several ways you can start improving the air quality in your home today. The first way is a little obvious – live plants. Certain plants, like spider plants and peace lilies, actively filter the air. Another quick change you can make is your filters…your heating and air conditioning filters, to be exact. While you’re at it, make sure all of your vents are clean. (This will also help with your system’s overall efficiency). Finally, make sure you’re using safe materials if you’re making any improvements on your home. Using low VOC (volatile organic compound) paints and building materials can make a huge difference now and in the future.
