Libraries in Albuquerque, Huning Highlands

Huning Highlands is home to the Old Main Library. The Old Main Library is now a Special Collections Library and is considered a historic landmark. It was built in 1925, after a multi-purpose building that housed the library sustained some damage in a fire the previous year. The new library was built exclusively for books, and they built an addition in 1947. By the early 1970s, it became evident that the library had outgrown the building, and they made a new main library for the city downtown. But, they’ve done a great job of preserving the Old Main Library and if you are curious about Albuquerque history, you’ve got to check it out.

Air Purifiers and Ozonators for Albuquerque Homes and Businesses

For those concerned with the indoor air quality of their home or workplaces, there are other solutions as well. Ask the team at Bosque about UV lights that improve the air quality of a space, and also the option to install an Ozonator. These machines put a safe percentage of ozone into the air in your home or business to help purify the air. 

I live in a new home in Huning Highlands Historic District. Why would I need to worry about the indoor air quality?

It is counterintuitive, but actually new homes are full of potential toxins that seep out of building materials like flooring and paint. In fact, your indoor air quality isn’t “pure” unless you take actions to make it so. Without any air purification steps, the air outside is much cleaner than the air in your home.
