We have a number of indoor air quality products and services to help improve your indoor air quality, which can actually be worse than the outdoor air quality in your area. This is particularly true this time of year. One of the biggest threats to this air quality is a poorly maintained HVAC system, or damaged ductwork.
Regular maintenance appointments will help you fend off problems with your HVAC unit, but it’s important to know everything that can threaten your indoor air quality. This is less about convenience and comfort and more about keeping you healthy. The lack of good indoor air quality can affect even the healthiest of homeowners. Below are some of the factors that can have a negative impact on this air quality.
Homes today are built in such a way that allows for little air to escape. This tighter construction is great for HVAC efficiency! However, it’s not so great for your indoor air quality. Fresh air must be able to reach your living space in order to rid the space of emissions like fumes, vapors, gases, and cigarette smoke. One device we offer that will help with this is the energy recovery ventilator.
Too much moisture, combined with high temperatures, can cause major problems for your indoor air quality. Your home’s relative humidity level should be between 30-50%, though this number is clearly much higher in the summertime in Florida! This excessive humidity causes mold to develop, and this can cause property damage in addition to an unhealthy situation for you and your family.
Outdoor Pollution Sources
There are many household products, like cleaning solutions and hairspray, which can negatively impact your indoor air quality. Outside pollutants also play a significant role. These include radon, pesticides, allergens, and smog. Not only are these irritating, they can cause ill effects for you and other members of your household.
