Winter Air Quality
In winter, we seal our homes up as tight as drums to help keep our homes cozy and prevent outrageous heating costs. The disadvantage to this is that winter often sends our indoor air quality levels plummeting to year-long lows. And boy, do we feel it. The air just seems stale, and almost sickly. Nothing like the fresh, healthy, inspiring air that travels freely through our homes when we throw open the windows during warm spring days. Here at South Nashville Heating & Cooling, we care about your comfort. That’s why we’re sharing with you our list of the Top 10 Plants for Indoor Air Quality, as well as the toxins they combat; followed by a couple more great solutions. Enjoy!
