Signs of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is one of the most important health concerns today, especially given the fact that the average American spends 90 percent of their time indoors. Although children and the elderly are particularly susceptible to pollutants, no one is immune to poor air quality.
Particulate matter, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), combustion pollutants, and other contaminants can be a sserious problem for nearly any building. If your home or workplace suffers from poor IAQ, you may experience a variety of symptoms, including:
- Sinus congestion
- Respiratory discomfort
- Eye irritation
Air Cleaners and Ventilators for Allergens and Chemical Irritants
Air filters and air purifiers can be effective at removing particulates, but these devices work best when there is already adequate ventilation. While conventional HVAC filters collect larger particles, some whole-house air cleaners can remove up to 99% of microscopic pollutants, including germs.
- Blue-Tube 24v UV lights help to improve your indoor air quality by sterilizing bacteria, viruses, other microbes, and allergens from the air as it passes through the central AC system.
- The REME HALO® system is a whole home, in-duct air purifier that’s capable of purifying all of the air that blows through your central AC system.
- iWave air purifying systems can be installed in any ducted AC system and use ionized particles to break down pollutants into harmless compounds like water vapor, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nitrogen.
VOCs, found in countless household products, are a class of pollutants that everyone should be aware of. Long-term exposure to these chemicals can damage the kidneys, liver, and central nervous system, in addition to being linked to certain types of cancer. An energy recovery ventilator exhausts pollutants, collects fresh air, and balances the temperature to save energy.
Humidification and Dehumidification Systems for Moisture Control
Humidity has a dramatic effect on your home’s air quality. If there’s too much moisture, dust mites and microbes can flourish. If there’s not enough, you may experience airway irritation and respiratory discomfort. As a homeowner, you can choose from several humidifiers and dehumidifiers that will infuse the air with water vapor or collect excess moisture.
