The air we breathe has a significant impact on our health and well-being. While many of us focus on the quality of the air we are exposed to outside, it’s essential to remember that the air inside our homes is even more important. Indoor air pollution is something that we are exposed to on a daily basis, and it can come from a variety of sources, including cleaning products, pet dander, and outdoor pollutants that make their way indoors. Exposure to poor indoor air quality can cause a variety of health issues like respiratory problems, allergy symptoms, and headaches. Conditions that may contribute to poor air quality in your home include:
1. Lack of Ventilation
Proper ventilation is essential for maintaining adequate indoor air quality. A mechanical ventilation system can circulate filtered fresh air into your home, which helps reduce indoor concentrations of air pollutants.
2. Improper Humidity Levels
In the winter, low humidity levels in your home cause dry skin, irritated eyes, and other health issues. A Whole-house humidifier can be incorporated into your existing HVAC system to ensure the proper humidity level in your home to improve air quality.
3. Indoor Air Pollutants
Indoor air pollutants can come from a variety of sources like cleaning products, cooking fumes, smoke, and pet dander. Common indoor pollutants include particulate matter, VOCs, and biological irritants like mold and bacteria. A whole home air purifier can be installed to reduce these pollutants in the air your family breathes.
