Minimizing Exposure to Indoor Air Pollution

June 20, 2019

At Cooper Heating & Cooling, we know that it can be difficult to keep indoor air clean and safe throughout the winter in Denver, CO. Pollution in the form of bacteria, viruses, volatile organic compounds, and particulates can adversely affect your health. Indoor air pollution is especially bad during the winters when doors and windows tend to be closed. Taking a few steps to improve your indoor air quality could provide many health benefits.

Install New Air Filters

An easy way to keep the air circulating in your home clean is to ensure that your air filters are clean and functional. Having a professional install new filters or an air purifier can remove harmful bacteria and particulates from the air.

Keep Your Home Ventilated

Getting fresh air into your house is important. Whenever you have a chance, open windows, and doors to let old air out and new air in.

Keep House Plants

Plants have an amazing ability to absorb harmful chemicals from the air while releasing clean oxygen to breathe. Keeping plants around your home can greatly improve the overall quality of the air that you’re breathing. Bamboo, areca palm, Boston fern, and a variety of other plants are especially effective.

Keep Pollution Out

Controlling what’s in your house can greatly reduce the pollution that gets circulated. Painting your home can release volatile organic compounds and should only be done when you can keep doors and windows open during and after the painting process.

Putting out a large doormat to keep dirt from getting tracked into your home can reduce the particulate load in the air. In addition, having everyone take his or her shoes off can keep dirt and bacteria outside.
