Is Indoor Air Quality A Concern For Your Home?
On December, 15, 2018
As a homeowner, your goal is to get through those tasks you have on your to-do list, not add to them. So it can be tempting to ignore the fact that one of the things that you should be including on that list is working towards improving the indoor air quality of your home. It is easy to assume the quality is fine, partly because the contaminants that negatively impact the air you and your family breathes, are not visible to the naked eye.
Yet, you should not let that fool you; this can have very serious implications on the health of you and your loved ones. While this is especially a big concern for anyone in your household that may suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory related health issues, you also want to be able to feel that you are helping prevent this from becoming an issue for members of your household that do not already have this problem. Instead of ignoring the problem and hoping it goes away, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to educate yourself on indoor air quality and the options you have for improving it.
What You Need to Know
For starters, let’s clear the air about the common misconception that the air inside your home is much safer to breathe than outside. Research now indicates that interior pollution can make the air you breathe anywhere from 2-100 times more contaminated. Since we also happen to spend an average of 90% of our time indoors, this should be an alarming factor to consider. Even if your home is brand new, you need to take steps to prevent letting you and your loved ones breathe recirculated, contaminated air.
One of the best options that you have is an air cleaner which does, as the name implies, clean your air. Think of this as being similar to a filter you would use before drinking or using water from a faucet. This helps ensure that the air going through your ducts and vents back into the room you watch TV in, or eat with your family or sleep at night. Help protect your household, and find out about getting an air cleaner installed professionally in your home.
