Today’s modern, energy-efficient homes are well insulated from the outside elements. Unfortunately, this can sometimes mean your home gets a bit stuffy and closed-in. Rather than waste energy heating or cooling your home after opening up the windows, you can use Mother Nature’s own methods of clearing the air.
Freshen Indoor Air With Water
Do you love the way the air smells after a good rain? That freshness comes from the negative ions generated by moving water. These ions literally attract dust, dirt and odors, pulling them out of the air. What’s left behind is a pure, fresh breeze.
With an indoor fountain, you can clean the air inside your home using this same method. Indoor fountains are available in a broad array of sizes and styles; you’ll be sure to find one to suit your décor. They’re easy to maintain and run on very little electricity. Try one in your bedroom and fall asleep to the soothing sounds of running water.
Houseplants Will Clean Your Air
Taking another cue from nature, plants and trees naturally exchange the air we breathe. To varying degrees, houseplants will clear your air of volatile organic compounds, or VOCs. Some of the best air-scrubbing houseplants include:
- Spider plant
- Golden pothos
- English ivy
- Peace lilies
Aim for one or two plants per room and you’ll enjoy improved air quality throughout your home.
