Living a Healthy Lifestyle Doesn’t Stop at a Better Diet
Many people count spring as their favorite season. It’s a time when flowers are blooming, the weather is becoming warmer and days are becoming longer. It’s also the time that people begin to see the dust that has settled in their home over the winter months. This usually spurs the spring cleaning ritual; the time to get the old out and the new in. With this in mind, plus the outdoor pollen, it can create an intolerable time for allergy and asthma sufferers.
Cleaning out the dark corners by dusting and mopping is a great start, but this may not be enough. It’s hard to realize that many Americans spend up to 90% of their time indoors. With this in mind, it’s crucial to have good indoor air quality. Indoor air pollution is the major cause of poor indoor air quality. These indoor allergens are significant to the trigger of asthma and allergy attacks. Poor air quality can happen when there is improper ventilation of the house, which can contribute to poor health. Besides allergies and asthma, poor indoor air can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea and fatigue. The American Lung Association recommends the first line of defense against poor indoor air is finding ways to keep the pollutants from the air. The appropriate ventilation with clean and fresh air entering the home can reduce the levels of indoor air pollutants. At Bonney, we strive to bring only the best and most effective products to your home. Our technicians are experts at providing air filtration and air purifying products that work hand in hand with your specific central heating and air conditioning system. Variable speed blower motors are products that slowly keep the air in your home circulated while using the least amount of energy and cost as possible. These can also be retrofitted to your existing system. Keeping your air ducts clean is also an important step in reducing pollutants in your home. We can help you clean your air ducts or replace them completely if needed. We can also provide high efficiency filters to keep your system free of contaminates in the future.
Another important part of your household to keep clean is your water system. What many people don’t realize is that several contaminants can get into your tap water when it travels to your home. The Natural Resources Defense Council reported that while many urban residents could drink tap water without serious health threats, some contaminants pose risk to infants, pregnant women and people with deficiencies in their immune systems. Keeping your water safe in your home is a crucial step in creating a clean and healthy lifestyle. The Bonney team can help you find the right water treatment solution for your home. The benefits of a water filter solution are healthier and softer skin, great tasting water straight from the tap, no hard water spots on appliances, clothes that last longer and cost-efficient operation. Over time, water filter systems will eliminate the need for bottled water or filters like Brita, reducing soap and detergent usage and providing a healthier lifestyle.
