Our HVAC Company Explains the Benefits of Indoor Plants

When it comes to enjoying your home, it’s important that you take care of it in many ways. For instance, cleaning little by little every day is essential. From doing the dishes to vacuuming, these minor chores can lead to a much more enjoyable environment in your home. Another thing that contributes to an enjoyable household environment is decorating. Mirrors, photos, and art are all things that can improve your environment, just with their presence alone. Add plants to any room in your home and you’ve got functional decor.

Plants are proven to improve your home’s indoor air quality. However, they have to be the right type of plants in order to get the results that you seek. Here are some plants that will help to improve your indoor air quality.

  • Spider Plant – This plant is extremely easy to grow as long as it lives in direct sunlight. At their healthiest, these plants remove pollutants, such as formaldehyde and xylene, from the air in your home. 
  • Ficus or Weeping Fig – A ficus can typically grow to be between two and 10 feet tall, but, as an indoor plant, you won’t see this height. However, you will benefit from the elimination of pollutants, like benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. Simply place this plant in a bright room away from direct sunlight and reap the benefits of clean air. This is a low-maintenance plant so it will be easy to keep alive! 
  • Boston Fern – Place this plant in a room with high humidity and indirect sunlight. The lower the humidity, the more you need to water it, as this plant must remain moist to stay alive. Placing a Boston Fern in your home will help to eliminate formaldehyde and xylene from the air. Breathe easy with this greenery in your home. 
  • Bamboo Palm – Place this beautiful palm in front of a window for direct sunlight. These plants can grow to be anywhere from four to 10 feet tall, even indoors. The bamboo palm will help remove pollutants, like formaldehyde, benzene, and trichloroethylene. 
  • Aloe Vera – Aloe Vera is great for multiple reasons, but who knew that it helped to purify the air in your home? This low-maintenance plant is great for removing the formaldehyde in the air and is also an anti-inflammatory. We think it’s safe to call aloe vera a super plant! 
  • Peace Lily – This beautiful plant does a great job at removing pollutants from the air, such as ammonia, benzene, formaldehyde, and trichloroethylene. Place this greenery in a shady area for the best growth and health of this plant.
