Whether it’s at work or at home, it’s a safe bet that you spend the majority of your time indoors (most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors). And whether you’re sleeping, working, watching TV or reading a book — when you’re indoors, you’re breathing in the air indoors too. That’s why good indoor air quality is so important, as it doesn’t just help provide a comfortable environment, but a safe environment as well.
Some popular types of indoor air hazards include second-hand smoke, combustion pollutants, pollen, radon, nitrogen dioxide, excessive dust, mildew, mold, pet dander, dust mites, viruses and carbon monoxide.
Residential Indoor Air Quality
As you can see, it is important to maintaining a safe, comfortable environment. After all, it’s estimated that the average human inhales more than 15,000 quarts of air per day. Thankfully, there are many solutions available at AirPlus Heating & Cooling, that can help promote this healthy, safe environment either through preventative or corrective measures.
Commercial Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality has been linked to symptoms like headaches, the trigger of allergic symptoms, eye irritation and fatigue. In more dire circumstances, it can also lead to more long-term health effects, such as asthma, certain cancers and lung disease. To put it into perspective, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that indoor air has the potential to be up to five times dirtier than outside air. In fact, it has ranked indoor air quality as one of its top five environmental dangers. Contact us today for more information on the importance of commercial indoor air quality.
Indoor Air Quality Products
Here’s a look at some of the AirPlus key products and solutions that we can offer you in the way of improving or maintaining premium indoor air quality. Our air quality products are designed keep your family healthy, safe & comfortable all year long:
- Air Cleaners: Air cleaners trap dust and remove allergens from the air. They help minimize potential allergy triggers to protect the health of your home or commercial facility.
- UV Lite: These products can be installed directly into the central air system and control microbes and odors as the system works. Not only does it help control contaminants that are potentially spread throughout the central air system, but it also helps to extend the life of the HVAC system by keeping it clean and contaminant-free.
- Humidifiers: Dry air can lead to cracked skin, bloody noses and other issues — and that’s where a humidifier can come in handy. Humidifiers work to increase moisture levels in the air by emitting vapor or steam. Like UVLite, they can be installed on the central air system to offer whole house humidification. Humidifiers can also help relieve cold-like symptoms.
