Did you know that the air you breathe inside your home influences your health? Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of indoor air as it pertains to your health and comfort.
The majority of homeowners often neglect this important aspect of indoor living, which can lead to negative health effects. Indoor air quality should be everyone’s concern. Studies have shown that we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors.
Ultimately the indoor environment has a huge effect on our immediate and long-term health. Respiratory issues including asthma, allergies, COPD, and emphysema are all affected by the air we breathe. Our long term health is affected by the chemicals in our home, from the products we use every day, to the materials the home was built with.
Indoor air quality issues naturally develop over time. The severity of indoor air quality issues depends on a large number of factors, including location, season, lifestyle, activities, condition of HVAC equipment, and presence of building components and furnishings. Any of these issues can create IAQ problems or perpetuate existing ones that negatively impact your health.
For example, pollen can be a major IAQ concern for specific areas during the spring, particularly to individuals who suffer from allergies. Lifestyle can seriously impact indoor air quality; if a homeowner smokes indoors, the quality of the air in the home suffers severely.
The condition of the HVAC equipment is an important factor in determining a building’s indoor air quality. Leaky or dirty ductwork can compromise the quality of the air you breathe. Finally, building components and furnishings are unexpected contributors to poor indoor air quality due to their release of volatile organic compounds, which are dangerous to your health.
It’s clear that there’s a need for an effective solution to poor quality air in your home or business and the threats associated with it. TemperaturePro offers industry-leading indoor air quality services that address even the most complex indoor air quality issues.
The following list of products are among the best in the industry for cleaning the air inside your home or business:
Air purifiers pull contaminants directly from the air. Think of an air purifier as your first line of defense against common household air pollutants. The purification process is simple, effective, and beneficial to your health.
One factor that plays into indoor air quality is the humidity level. Humidity is damaging to your indoor air quality both when it is too high and when it is too low. High levels of humidity facilitate the growth of mold, and mold spores are damaging to your health when breathed in. Low levels of humidity allow air pollutants to remain suspended in the air, inevitably being breathed in by a building’s inhabitants.
By controlling and maintaining a consistent, appropriate level of humidity, your air is healthier to breathe because air pollutants sink to the floor and are unlikely to be inhaled. Good humidity levels also help to improve dry skin conditions and prevent wood furniture from cracking.
Fresh air is one of the best ways to improve indoor air quality. Mechanical ventilators attach to your air distribution system and introduce a controlled amount of outdoor air into the home or business.
As outdoor air is drawn into the ductwork, an equal amount of stale indoor air is removed from the living area. Replenishing your home with fresh air can make a huge difference in your home’s or business’s indoor air quality.
Using a dehumidifier in your home removes the extra moisture from the air causing it to feel cooler in your home. This lets you set your thermostat higher in the warmer months and reduces your overall energy bill.
Not only does it make your home feel cooler, but it also reduces the chances of the reproduction of mold, mildew, and other bacteria.
Harmful bacteria pose a threat to your family’s health. To reduce illnesses in your home, UV lamps can be installed in your system’s ductwork. These lights will destroy harmful bacteria with ultraviolet light before they can make it into your home’s indoor air.
