There is arguably nothing more important than the air that we breathe. That’s why it is of the utmost importance to ensure that we have clean air supply so we can stay healthy and thriving.
Our trees play an important role in making sure we have clean air as they reduce carbon dioxide levels as well as remove harmful pollutants from the air by trapping odors on their leaves and bark.
National Love A Tree Day is a holiday created to remind us to take some time out to truly appreciate the trees and show gratitude for all that they do for our wellbeing!
The Benefits of Clean Air
There are countless health benefits to be reaped from breathing in clean air. Some of the many benefits include but are not limited to:
- Reduced greenhouse gases.
- Reduced ecosystem effects.
- Prevention of lung disease and other respiratory illnesses.
- Protection of crops and vegetation.
- Improvement in visibility.
As mentioned above, trees play a huge role in removing harmful toxins from the air and improving the overall quality of it. Trees clean the air by absorbing polluted particles and harmful particles. Harmful toxins such as ammonia, nitrogen oxide, and sulfur dioxide are absorbed by tree leaves and bark making for a cleaner and healthier air supply.
Not only do trees clean the air but they also grant us with fresh oxygen every day! This is why taking the time to care for the trees around your home is essential. It can be as simple as watering your favorite ones or getting involved in the community to plant new ones. The more neighbors you get involved, the better everyone will feel this May!
The Role of Your HVAC System
As our world changes, so does the environment, and not exactly for the better. With the rise of corporations and the growth of the world’s population, our clean air supply is drastically decreasing.
We need trees now more than ever to cleanse our air and remove harmful pollutants from the outdoor air. Inside, that responsibility lands on your heater and air conditioner. By investing in a quality HVAC system, you can make sure that your family’s health is protected.
You can also make sure that your home is receiving clean air. Whether that’s a quality air filtration system, cleaner ducts, or ongoing maintenance, the more care you put into your HVAC system, the cleaner the air inside your home will be.
National Love A Tree Day is a great start to changing the relationship we have with trees. There are various ways to celebrate such as stepping outside to water the trees and plants or taking the extra mile to plant your own! At Honest Abe’s Home Services, we’re dedicated to our community and do our best to help it.
Our environment is drastically changing and the only way to combat the negative effects our growth has is by taking a stand and making a difference! How are you celebrating National Love A Tree Day this year? Let us know in comments!
