Improving the indoor climate

Bad indoor climate affects well-being. However, there are suitable measures that significantly improve the climate.

Simple Measures - Ventilation & Temperature

A regular exchange of air ensures a healthy indoor climate. This is achieved by opening the windows two to three times a day for 5 to 10 minutes. Also, the room temperature should not exceed 20 degrees as possible. Because this applies, according to the Office for Occupational Safety and Environmental Protection as comfort temperature. On the other hand, rooms that are too warm cause a decrease in performance and concentration in mental activities.

Water tanks improve humidity

Heating during the cold season affects the indoor climate. The remedy is to use flat commercial containers that are filled with water and hung on the heater. Thus, the liquid gradually evaporates, thereby improving the humidity in the room. To control the humidity, a hygrometer can be used. This can be read at any time the relative humidity and take regulatory action if necessary. For orientation, the recommended values ​​are 40 to 65 percent for ideal humidity.

Indoor plants for a healthy indoor climate

Indoor plants are not only decorative, but also improve the indoor climate. Because they can filter carbon dioxide and pollutants from the air and provide humidity. This is done by the constant evaporation of the irrigation water, which is released in this way back to the room air. Some indoor plants are particularly effective in this capacity. These include, among others, the birch fig, the mountain palm, the Areca palm, the dragon tree, the single leaf and the rubber tree.

Suitable floor coverings for living rooms

The floor covering can also influence the indoor climate. In contrast to the widespread opinion that carpets are unhygienic, they can bind fine dust. As a result, you can contribute to air purification and thus improve the living environment. For this reason, carpets are also particularly suitable for house dust allergy sufferers and asthmatics. This has resulted in a study of the German Allergy and Asthma Federation. Thus, a carpet can reduce the particulate matter in the air even up to 50 percent. Dense carpet structures with short pile are especially recommended. In addition, the flooring should be tested for harmful substances and therefore be certified with a GUT seal.
