Improve Indoor Air Quality in the Home
Going green not only benefits the environment, it also benefits your home. It’s also not just in the capital where air pollution levels are reaching record highs. In Norfolk, last year pollution levels ( which are measured on an air quality scale of 1-10) reached an astonishing 10. This proves that it’s not only cities with high levels of congestion, factories and traffic which are affect it is also the countryside.
Here are some ways you can look to improve air quality indoors at home:
- Most of our energy comes from the burning of fossil fuels ( oil, gas and coal). It is the emission from the burning of these gases that are the primary cause of carbon dioxide. You can help combat this by reducing your energy intake.
- Invest in a product such as The Icynene Insulation System . An eco-friendly insulation which reduces your carbon emission as well as bills. It also keeps your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
- Caulk or weather strip cracks and holes, as well as windows or doors.
- Plant a tree such as a deciduous tree outside your home to keep out the heat in summer whilst keeping warm in winter.
