When summer comes along we all jump straight to our A/C’s and ceiling fans to combat the heat; however these same appliances may also trigger seasonal allergies and put out toxins into the air. Did you know air purifying plants can help lower the temperature at home while keeping it clean to breathe?
According to a NASA study plants go through a process called transpiration, giving them a “sweaty” appearance. When plants go through this process they begin to release water that evaporates and absorbs heat! Air purifying plants reduce heat by maintaining humidity and moisture in the air.
Here are some of the most effective humidifying plants!
Not only does the Chinese Evergreen have a high humidifying rate but it also detoxes the air from toxins such as benzene, carbon monoxide, and formaldehyde.
Aloe Vera doesn’t just relieve your body from a bad sunburn but it also reduces the temperature too. Aloe Vera has a high water content making it ideal to cool and purify your home.
Like Aloe Vera the Snake Plant is high in water content; however it’s not just it’s natural cooling process that brings down the temperature but it’s size too. Snake Plants love the sun, you can place it in front of a window to block the heat while still getting some natural light.
Peace Lilies are a transpiration powerhouse. The bigger the leaf the most likely you’re going to receive an abundance of oxygen and fresh air.
