Causes of Poor Indoor Air Quality
Today’s better-insulated homes are great for energy-efficient heating and cooling, but the downside is less air exchange between the indoors and outside. This results in contaminants becoming trapped inside the home. The pollutants have a number of causes, from dirty heating and cooling systems to pets and household chemicals.
Indoor air can be contaminated by:
- Dust and dust mites
- Pet dander
Poor indoor air quality can have an impact on health and comfort. While indoor air pollutants are bad for everyone, they are particularly dangerous to people with allergies, asthma, and respiratory conditions. Indoor air pollutants can aggravate these conditions and have a negative impact on long term health and wellness.
Products to Improve Air Quality
Finding the right solution to better indoor air quality in Racine starts with determining what pollutants are contaminating your air. If you are worried about allergens, humidity levels, mold, or bacteria, identifying the improvements that need to be made is always the best way to start. A variety of products are available to remove specific contaminants.
We install equipment to improve indoor air quality, including:
- High-efficiency filters – Filters are available in different efficiencies to help filter particles from the air in your home.
- Dehumidifiers – In the summer, the air conditioner needs to lower the air temperature and the humidity level to make the house comfortable. If the air conditioning system isn’t reducing humidity sufficiently, a dehumidifier can help.
- Humidifiers – When the air is too dry, you may experience dryness in your eyes, nose, and throat, and dry skin. Too little humidity can also be damaging to your wood flooring and furnishings, causing them to dry out or crack.
- UV lights – Ultraviolet lights are effective for killing bacteria, viruses, and mold.
