In our last blog, Tips to Help Improve The Indoor Air Quality in Your Home or Business, we discussed several tips to help reduce unhealthy indoor air quality. Indoor air quality is an important aspect of creating a comfortable and healthy living environment. Poor indoor air quality can lead to asthma triggers, cold-like symptoms and respiratory issues. One of the tips discussed was air filtering house plants. Plants such as Aloe Vera, Spider Plant, Snake Plant and English Ivy are very effective at doubling as air filters. Let's take a closer look at these 4 indoor plants that will work to help keep your air clean and healthy.

  1. Aloe Vera: This a great choice of a plant to grow indoors. You can grow these right on your kitchen windowsill. Not only will the Aloe Vera help purify the air indoors, but you can use the gel inside the blades to treat sunburn and other ailments.
  2. Spider Plant: Not only is this a long-lasting, durable plant that even the most green-thumbed challenged person can’t kill, it looks great and works hard for you. The spider plant will battle all sorts of indoor allergens and toxins to help keep you feeling healthy in your home.
  3. Snake Plant: It wouldn’t be right to mention the spider plant without also pointing out the snake plant. The snake plants can grow in low light and will take up arms against chemicals in the air that are typically found in common household items.
  4. English Ivy: English Ivy has been found to filter out air-borne fecal particles and formaldehyde that is also commonly found in household items. It, too, is an easy plant to tend to and looks great around the home.

Utilizing air filtering indoor plants in your home is not only great for decorating purposes, but is a green and inexpensive method of improving indoor air quality. Give the experts at Anchor Heating & Air Co. a call today to advise you on how you can improve the indoor air quality of your home or business.
