Indoor Air Quality
You think the air inside your home is clean? You could be breathing polluted air.
Studies such as one conducted by the EPA have shown that your indoor air can actually be significantly more polluted than the air outdoors. How is this possible?
Modern homes and buildings are sealed tightly to conserve energy. This helps keep energy costs down, but it also seals in toxins (household cleaners, etc.) mold, pollen, bacteria, pet dander and other pollutants. Basically your home's air conditioning system can act as a contaminate recycling system, affecting your air quality and health. The EPA has even ranked it as one of their top health concerns, and you can read about it on their website: Introduction to Indoor Air Quality.
The good news is that indoor air quality products exist to purify your air. These products integrate into your HVAC system and include ventilators, air cleaners, UV lights and humidifiers (also dehumidifiers). Each has a specific function to help enhance the indoor air quality in your home.
