It’s tempting to go out and buy an air-conditioner isn’t it? Don’t worry, there is a much cheaper, and environmentally friendly way to lower the temperature down in your house: plants.
You might already have a pot or two lying at home for decor reasons however, certain plants not only look good but can also keep the air cool and help flush out toxins as well.
The air is cooled down because these plants lose water during transpiration, cooling the air around them and leaving it purified and fresh.
A professor at a University in Vermont Dr. Leonard Perry, adds that “a USDA estimate is that proper use of plants could decrease air temperature in an office by as much as ten degrees. Plus, the moisture released by these plants helps maintain indoor humidity in the human comfort zone of 30 to 60 percent, and helps prevent materials such as wood from cracking when dried out.”
