How Indoor Plants Help Eliminate Indoor Toxins
Concerned about indoor air quality? Put your green thumb to work. Plants not only thrive in spite of household air contaminants, but also help to remove them from the air. Airborne formaldehyde (a carcinogen that comes from materials like plywood, adhesives, carpet and paint) and carbon monoxide (produced by heating or cooking equipment) are two examples of toxins eliminated by houseplants. Combine this idea with additional tips and equipment options designed to improve the air your family breathes. Contact us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, for more information today.
Tips for Making Your Attic Air Tight
If you want to reduce energy costs, start by looking for air leaks in your attic. Cover gaps where chimneys and furnace flues penetrate your attic floor with flashing or seal with heat resistant caulk. Seal holes or tears in air ducts with mastic or foil tape. Then insulate. Contact us, the Westinghouse HVAC experts, for help with conducting a complete energy audit of your home. With just a few simple suggestions, we can help you increase comfort and save money, too.
When to Air Out the Inside
Did you know that your efforts to save energy could be compromising your indoor air quality? That’s because harmful elements can’t escape an airtight environment, and become concentrated indoors instead. We recommend that you “air out” your home about once a week. In the winter, turn off your heating system and open a few windows while you make a run to the grocery store or take a walk around the neighborhood. In the summer, open windows at night and keep them closed during the heat of the day. As Westinghouse heating and air experts, we can recommend additional products and practices to improve the air quality of your home. Call us for a consultation today.
