Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)
Most Americans spend more time inside than outside. Yet most people take the air they breathe for granted. Chances are, you have billions of unwanted contaminants living in your home. Dust mites, mold, mildew, skin flakes, pollen, pet dander, to name a few. Isn’t it time you take control of your air quality?
Risks of Poor IAQ
Poor Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) can affect health and even cause a number of illnesses. Itchy eyes, headaches, fatigue, and problems concentrating have all been listed as symptoms of poor IAQ by the US Department of Labor, Occupational Safety & Health Administration. Today’s insulated and tightened homes worsen the problem, circulating and re-circulating the same stale contaminated air without allowing the introduction of fresh air.
The air you breathe is affected by two primary factors; air pollutants and the amount of ventilation. It’s quite easy to improve IAQ. The simplest way is better ventilation. Open windows. Use fans to reduce fumes and let in fresh air. Consider the installation of a ventilation system or air purifying system.
Ventilators are designed to remove stale air from your home, while preventing valuable energy from escaping. Not only do ventilators work quietly and efficiently, bringing fresh air into your home year round, they pre-condition the incoming air to better match the inside air temperature.
State-of-the-art purifying systems collect and kill bacteria, viruses, mold spores, allergens and other pollutants in the conditioned air and remove them from the air you breathe. Air purifiers clean indoor air as many as eight times an hour.
Steam output dehumidifiers offer precise control over humidity. Water flows between electrodes to create steam which is then dispersed into the ductwork. Fan-powered dehumidifiers quietly blow moisture directly into ductwork and spread comforting humidity throughout your home.
UV lamps kill the mold and mildew that collects on the indoor coil of your cooling system. Eliminating these organisms not only improves IAQ but increases your system performance as well.
