The Importance Of The Air Quality In Your Home
Generally, people don’t give very much thought to the quality of the air they breathe in their homes. If they knew, however, just how much it could impact their health and well-being, perhaps they wouldn’t take it for granted. It is not out of the ordinary for a home to become polluted with mold spores, chemicals, and dust, as well as many other toxins.
Indoor air quality or IAQ refers to the overall quality of the air as it relates to the health and comfort of its occupants.
UV Air Sanitizers
The filter in your HVAC system has only a limited ability to remove airborne bacteria and dust. That means that some of the dust and bacteria is allowed to travel through the ductwork and back into your home.
The best way to eliminate virtually all of these harmful particles is to have a UV air sanitizer professionally installed. These devices use ultraviolet light to incinerate bacteria and dust particles, giving you clean, healthy air in your home that is virtually free of dust and germs.
Elevated humidity levels in your home can lead to the growth of harmful mold and mildew. The Environmental Protection Agency suggests that the most effective way to curb the growth of mold in your home is to maintain the relative humidity between 30 and 60%.
Having a whole home dehumidifier installed is a great way to control the indoor relative humidity in your home.
Did you know that approximately 40 pounds of dust are generated annually through normal daily activity in an average six room home? We also release ample amounts of air pollutants and contaminants during our regular daily life.
Since some dust and bacteria can make their way into your ductwork despite the presence of an air filter, it is a good idea to have your ducts cleaned regularly to help prevent their spread throughout your home.
