Today’s homes are more energy efficient than ever, sealed tightly to keep the extreme weather elements out. This is great news for our wallets and the environment, cutting down on energy consumption and utility costs. However, it’s not so great for our indoor air quality.
According to the EPA, the concentration of indoor pollutants is often 2 to 5 times higher than you would find outdoors. This is especially true in the cold winter and hot summer months when people try to escape from the outdoors and seal their home off from fresh air.
Thankfully, there are many ways to improve the air quality inside your home and make it safer for you and your family to live in. First and foremost, regularly changing the air filters in your heating and cooling units is extremely important, as is regularly cleaning your home. Sometimes that’s not enough, however, particularly for homes with young children, older adults, or anyone suffering from breathing issues.
If you fall into that category, fear not. Our experienced team of licensed, insured HVAC technicians will work with you to find the best air quality improvement solution(s) for your home or business.
Cold winters bring dry air, which can exacerbate asthma, cause sore throats and nose bleeds, as well as dry, irritated skin conditions. Humidifiers help add moisture back into your home.
Too much moisture in your home encourages the growth of harmful bacteria, viruses, mold, and other pollutants. Dehumidifiers help take unwanted moisture out of the air.
Ultraviolet (UV) lights have been shown to effectively sanitize air and equipment. A qualified HVAC technician can help install a UV light in your HVAC system to keep mold, bacteria, and viruses from growing inside, as well as kill any pollutants that enter.
