Why Indoor Air Quality Is Important
It’s an unfortunate fact that air quality problems are on the rise in the country inside homes. The U.S. EPA lists indoor air quality problems as one of the nation’s major health risks. The reason that air quality is declining is because the effective insulation heat sealing on homes makes it difficult for fresh air to enter a house and replace stale and pollutant–filled air. This can lead to the indoor air being three to four times less healthy than the air outside.
Poor air quality triggers a number of problems. It decreases comfort and exposes people to a variety of contaminants that cause respiratory issues, insomnia, fatigue, and other ailments. People with allergies and asthma are particularly susceptible health problem because of low indoor air quality. Professionals can help protect your household from all these troubles with the proper measures and installations.
Your Options for Indoor Air Quality Systems
What is the best solution the low indoor air quality in your home? You will have to contact professionals to discover this. Our technicians will identify the specific issues in your home’s air, and then recommend an air quality system (or systems) to counteract it. There are a number of different options. Here are some of them:
Air cleaners are popular options to eliminate contaminants from circulating through a house. An air cleaner is installed into the HVAC system, where it traps dust, dirt, pollen, dander, and even smaller particles as they move through the ducts. Some air cleaners are mechanical filters, while others work through electricity to ionize particles in the air. Your professional installer will help you determine what type will work best for your home.
The growth of toxic molds, viruses, and bacteria inside the ventilation system can create major health hazards in a home. UV germicidal lights can get rid of these pollutants without harming your air; they use ultraviolet light to disrupt the cells of organic contamination, which destroys them and keeps them from coming back. If your home suffers from organic contaminants in the HVAC system, let our IAQ experts handle it with UV germicidal lights.
Low humidity can be a major problem in Salt Lake City. Not only does low humidity make colder temperatures feel worse, but it can cause cracks along wooden surfaces, promote the rapid spread of illnesses, and lead to irritated skin, eyes, and nose. A whole–house humidifier, properly sized by a professional, will balance your home’s humidity and take care of these problems.
An energy recovery ventilator (ERV) allows you to bring fresh air into your home without causing either the heater or the air conditioner to struggle and raise your energy bills. ERVs use a process that runs a current of outdoor fresh air through a current of indoor air, transferring heat energy and pre–cooling or pre–heating the fresh air. You must have a professional handle installation of an ERV.
