Inside or Outside, Clean Air Should be a Priority


There are so many things that are affected by pollution in the air. The smog and pollution affect the plants and animals. Fortunately, trees help to clean the air and make it more breathable.

We celebrate trees on May 16 which is National Love a Tree Day. We’re going to talk about how clean air helps you, how you can keep the air inside your home clean and how you can celebrate the day yourself.

Clean Air Can Improve Your Mood

Putting in an air conditioner, which will provide you with clean air, usually will lower depression and make you feel happier.

Generally, when you have clean air, you also feel healthier, so that can help you with having a better mood. It’s amazing what a huge difference clean air can make in your life.

Give the Home’s HVAC System a Good Checkup

hvacsystemEven though you’d like to have the windows open to let the fresh air in, that also lets a lot of pollution in. That’s why having an HVAC system is so important to keep you cool during the summer. But you also want to make sure that you’re keeping up on its maintenance to have clean air inside.

If you have a maintenance plan for your HVAC system, it also will include a complete inspection of the cooling and heating system. A technician is going to check the unit for broken or malfunctioning components, grimy and dirty coils, leaks and other kinds of issues.

These types of issues can affect the ability of the system to cool the home down and maintain the right humidity levels. This can result in harmful growth of mold and mildew. Proper repair and maintenance can help with reducing the chances of harmful allergens and particles in the air in your home.

Celebrate by Learning the Trees in the Area

loveatreeNo matter where you’re living, chances are that there are trees in the area. Look closely at a few of them. Are those trees the same trees? Are the trees skinny and tall or do they have round tops?

What kind of bark do they have? What are the bark’s texture and color? Does it have smooth or scaly bark? How about its flowers or buds? Look at the leaves’ shape and color. Do they have needle-shaped or flat leaves? Are they leaflets or one piece?

You also can make some rubbings of leaves and use those rubbings for studying the structure of leaves. Trees have so many cool and interesting variations.
