These can be installed by HVAC [heating, ventilation and air-conditioning] companies and will allow for a cleaner air-quality environment, he said. And on days when it is warm outdoors, try “natural ventilation”—one of the EPA’s website recommendations is to open windows and doors. Air purifiers: Air purifiers with HEPA filters are good for removing dust and irritants. There are purifiers that work through an HVAC system, and there are portable air purifiers. Check out the EPA Indoor Air Quality website (epa.gov) for a short consumer guide that provides information on portable air cleaners and on HVAC and furnace filters. Pets and dander Air purifiers are also recommended for the dander that our snuggly pets add to our household air. Harvard Health suggests regularly cleaning bedding, drapes and other items that tend to attract allergens; The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology recommends washing them in water that is at least 130 degrees. They also suggest putting dust mite–proof covers on pillows, mattresses and box springs. Keep the humidity up: Mr. Cliff suggests keeping a kettle of water on the wood stove; this will act as a humidifier and help control dust. Many of us who own wood stoves also have a humidifier in the bedroom. There are tabletop humidifiers—both warm mist and cool mist—which are good for small rooms, larger console models for bigger areas, and whole-house humidifiers. It is best to do some research to see which fits your needs. Some practical actions: Leave the fan off in your bathroom when you shower, and let the steam out. And on days when you don't hang clothes on the clothesline outside, use indoor racks, which adds some moisture to the air inside (and avoids using the energy-consuming dryer.) Plants: Do houseplants help with air quality? They do take in carbon dioxide and emit oxygen, but do they—as NASA concluded in a 1989 study—make a major contribution to purifying indoor air of such toxins as benzene and formaldehyde? That is up for discussion, because some people say plants grown in a laboratory for research with the optimal amount of light for photosynthesis cannot be compared with plants in your house. But whether the impact is major or minimal, just having plants in your house—especially in winter—is soothing and may reduce stress. Terry Soares of Soares Nursery says many plants can flourish in the low light of winter in south-facing windows. She recommends cactus and other succulents, African violets, peace lilies, fiddle plants, and some of the larger plants, such as ficus and rubber trees. Just don’t overwater them, she cautions—let the plants get dry in the winter. 12 | FALL HOME & GARDEN The Enterprise • Fall 2019 What does the i stand for in iKitchens? innovative design • incredible communication impeccable execution • inspirational spaces Est 2006 Kitchens - Baths - Mudrooms - Basements - Etc. www.iKitchensEtc.com Visit our Design Studio @ 321 East Falmouth Hwy.
