How to Build a Healthier Home

posted by Chris Valentine

Wellness is a term you’ve likely heard floating around conversations over the last couple of years. It’s a term that brings light to personal health and wellbeing — be it diet, exercise routine, or the simple act of taking care of your self with activities such as massage therapy or meditation.

Wellness is also making itself known in the world of housing and home renovations. People are recognizing the need to build homes that keep us healthy, clean, and safe.

There are many ways to improve the wellness of your home. Does someone in your home suffer from allergies? You’d be shocked at the amount of dust and mold that accumulates over time. Or perhaps you’re not getting enough sunlight and vitamin D due to poor window installation.

This is the perfect time of year to start planning home renovations for the spring. Consider how you can make your house healthier with these three home wellness tips.

Sustainable Renovations

Making your home healthy and clean requires a little bit of time and hard work. It’s an investment that will save you money in the long run; it will increase your home’s value, and you’ll have peace of mind knowing that it’s a safe haven for your family and friends. To begin the healthy home process, consider renovation options to create a cleaner and more sustainable household.

Start from the inside out and install eco friendly windows and doors for a home that is clean and sustainable.

When you choose to work with a company that offers sustainable windows and doors, not only will you save money on energy bills, but you’ll also enjoy more exposure to natural light and an increased level of comfort all year long.

With sustainable windows and doors, you won’t need to hike up the thermostat in the winter or the air conditioner in the summer because they provide outstanding insulation. They’re efficient ways to save energy and in addition to this, you’re being eco-friendly and helping the planet conserve energy.

You’ll also find there will be more natural light filling your house because eco-friendly windows don’t require any tint to perform. You’ll feel warm in winter and cool in the summer, and you’ll get your daily dose of Vitamin D.

Install an Air Purifier

It’s another investment, but so worth it. Dust, mold, pet dander, and other home particles live in your vents and float around the air in your house. It’s impossible to see, but they’re there.

Install a whole-home air purifier to rid your home of any hazardous particles. They produce allergies and can get into your lungs and cause breathing problems. If a whole home device isn’t possible, you can also purchase smaller, electric air purifiers that will also do the trick.

Get Rid of the Carpet

Speaking dust and other nasty home particles, carpets are nesting grounds for those tiny health hazards. Even if you vacuum on the daily, the dust and mold cling on to carpets for years.

Strip your floors and enjoy the beauty of hardwood floors. They’re beautiful to look at and also a lot easier to clean!

These three tips will help you to build a healthy, happy home. Wellness is important to remember in all aspects of life, and your house is no exception.
