Posted on March 30th, 2015 by Jupiter Tequesta

A recent survey found that 43 percent of people are concerned about indoor air quality. Did you know that mold growth within your air ducts can affect the quality of the air you and your family breathe? Below, we’ve laid out a few more tips on indoor air quality. Follow these pointers for cleaner, more breathable air!

1. UV air sanitizing

When moisture enters your air handling system, it creates the perfect breeding ground for dangerous molds and microorganisms. Not only does mold growth within your air ducts impact the performance of your air conditioning system, but it also distributes the mold throughout your living environment. The experts of Jupiter-Tequesta Air Conditioning, Plumbing & Electric utilize  UVC Light systems combined with PHI Technology to combat this mold growth. Read more about our process here.

2. Indoor plants

“A more benign addition to air filtration could be the use of houseplants,” advises Environmental Health Perspectives. The process of photosynthesis removes carbon dioxide from the air and replaces it with oxygen. Moreover, plants have the ability to metabolize toxic chemicals. The following plants in particular are effective at removing harmful substances:

  • Devil’s ivy
  • Japanese royal fern
  • Spanish moss

3. Keep chemical pollutants to a minimum

For example, tobacco smoke comprises thousands of pollutants at excessive concentrations. Harsh cleaners should also be avoided, as they contain chemicals that can irritate eyes, skin and lungs.
