We want to help you improve the air quality in your country home.

Let’s get started discussing how to improve your home’s air quality.

Improving Air Quality

I’m guessing that one of the reasons you moved to a home in the country, was to escape dirty urban air. You want to breathe better, feel better, and experience better health.

Billions of people in urban and rural areas, use traditional stoves and open fires that are propelled by coal, biomass, and even kerosene. These cooking methods, using polluting stoves, are linked to 4 million premature deaths every year --- per the World Health Organization. This is due to different illnesses brought on by home air pollution.

Home air pollution is also linked to strokes, heart disease, lung cancer, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Living in the countryside should be safer, relaxing, and less polluted. And we want to help you get there.

Let’s discuss some proven strategies for improving your indoor air quality.

Identify/Eliminate the Source

One of the best ways to lessen or stop indoor air pollution is to get rid of the emission source.

Sources include chemicals, insecticides, fumes from wood burners and kerosene, as well as dust mites.

To get rid of these pollutants, you can use various methods.

Example: You can replace non-toxic pesticides or install easy-to-clean hard flooring instead of carpeting. It is also a good idea to change your home’s air filters regularly. Also, consider installing a kitchen ventilation system to lessen emissions. These are some effective ways to lessen emissions.

Lessen Carbon Monoxide

Wood stoves, central heating systems, gas-powered water heaters, and unventilated kerosene heaters can increase carbon monoxide levels.

Carbon monoxide levels also rise due to faulty chimneys and broken furnaces.

Make sure all combustion equipment works properly. Also, check to see that they are adjusted to lessen or eliminate any toxic fume emissions.

Check the doors of your wood stove (if applicable). They must shut tightly. Have all these fixtures thoroughly inspected by qualified professionals regularly. This will ensure that the carbon monoxide levels are eliminated or are set to the lowest levels.

Boost Air Ventilation

When your home has proper ventilation, all the dangerous air pollutants, emissions, and allergen particles end up outside.

This leads to far less exposure to emissions and harmful air.

It is also important to keep some windows cracked open --- even during the cold months of winter. Keep the attic fan open. This will help fresh air circulate throughout your house.

Improve Air Quality

Cleaning the air inside your home can be an easy task.

You just need to determine all the possible sources of emissions and pollution. Then, find the right strategy to get rid of them.

If possible, schedule regular inspections with skilled professionals. This will help ensure that your air quality at home remains at healthy levels.
