Ensuring fresh indoor air is one of the most important tasks of a modern family. Living in unclean air might heavily damage your health, so try preventing this as soon as possible. Of course, you can’t keep your windows open all the time – which would, after all, be the best solution – but applying several other techniques might do the trick. Here’s what you can do.

Open the Windows

This is literally the easiest, yet still undoubtedly the most effective way to purify the air in your home – simply open the windows and let nature do its magic. No matter what time of the day it is, you can freshen up your home in a matter of minutes. Some experts even say that ventilating during winter is surprisingly good for your health.

Fresh air will give you energy, help you wake up, relieve your stress and boost your circulation. Most people love letting the fresh air in as soon as they wake up or before going to bed, so do that – starting today!

Natural Solutions

Instead of purchasing expensive cooling systems, opting for natural ideas makes more sense. It’s certainly better for your health and it saves you a ton of money in the long run. Therefore, looking into ceiling fans might be a good idea – these were popular a few decades ago and are now making a huge comeback since they’re cheap, effective and easy to maintain.

Additionally, you could regulate the air by minimizing the production of heat in your home.

Appliances like the TV, oven, fridge, washing machine and tumble dryer produce lots of heat which reduced the air quality in your home. And since it’s better to be safe than sorry, try purifying your air by controlling the usage of these appliances.

Purify and Enjoy

One of the most effective solutions available to you are air purifiers. These handy devices will solve all your problems and elevate air quality without you even knowing it. Their work consists of catching and eliminating all those dust particles and other harmful contaminants you don’t want in your home. Once these are trapped in a purifier, you can be sure they won’t enter your indoor air ever again.

However, if you want your purifiers to do their job properly, you need to clean and replace their filters on a regular basis and also change them from time to time. Only this way can you ensure the health of your family.

Slow-Burning Ionization

All fans of slow-burning candles know how effective these are when setting a romantic mood or organizing a pleasant evening with your family. However, what some of them might not know is that beeswax candles are also among the best air purifiers on the market and quite an affordable way to ensure your home is always full of fresh air.

What these candles do is ionize the indoor air and thus neutralize all toxic and dangerous elements found in your home. Unlike paraffin candles, they can’t harm your health or produce additional problems in the future. Ultimately, since these are slow-burning candles, you won’t have to purchase new ones that frequently.

More Green Solutions

Houseplants don’t just look nice and make your proud every time someone complements you on your collection, but are also irreplaceable when it comes to air purification. They’ll capture and neutralize toxins, successfully filtering your air all day long – and the best part is that you don’t have to spend a fortune on their maintenance! Yes, watering the plants will take some of your energy, but the results are worth the struggle.

Some of the best houseplants that guarantee fresh air for the years to come are spider plant, lady palm, dracaena, ficus and butterfly palm. Some of them, like chrysanthemum, English ivy or bamboo will also add to the overall appeal of your living area and prove to be the best decorations you could find.

Other Ideas

Besides putting these ideas into practice, you can purify your home by getting salt lamps and bamboo charcoal, dusting your ceilings and regularly washing your towels, mats and bed linen. Only this way will your family stay safe and protected, so you can be sure that the air they’re breathing is of the highest quality.
