Indoor Air Quality Problems and Resolutions

Did you know that the air inside your home could be more polluted than air outside the home? According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside and results from indoor air tests across North America support this finding. Approximately 96% of homes in the United States (almost everyone) had at least one indoor air quality problem. Poor indoor air quality can lead to increased allergies, decreased breathing, and many other health problems. Installing a Central Air system (HVAC) can help resolve a number of these problems contributing to indoor air pollution. Here are a few of the many reasons to consider installing an HVAC system for better air quality.

  1. Elimination of Micro Organisms - Dust mites, mold, bacteria, pet dander, viruses, and many of those other micro organisms commonly found throughout the home can significantly pollute the air you breath. A central air units recycles air throughout the home and processes all air through a high quality air filter which removes all of these micro organisms and increases air quality. Germicidal lights within the central air system also eliminate these pollutants.
  2. Purification of Vapors and Odors - Pet smells, cooking fumes, cleaning supplies, and any other odors are naturally removed from the air within the home through the centralized air recycle system with an HVAC unit. The central air system purifies all air throughout the home. It's similar to having a constant air purifier in each room.
  3. Humidity Control - Too much humidity in the home can contribute to an increase in mold, mildew and bacteria. HVAC systems automate and regulate the air control within the home so that humidity never rises over an acceptable threshold thus eliminating any type of moisture or humidity issues that may occur without an HVAC system.
  4. Ventilation - Many areas of the home lack proper ventilation, especially areas in the basement or without windows. HVAC systems are able to push high quality air throughout each room within the home and thus increases ventilation and circulation.

An HVAC system will provide high quality fresh air throughout the entire home and will also help reduce any allergens and potential health problems that can naturally build up in many homes. Speak with an HVAC professional to discuss a system that can significantly increase the air quality of your home.
