Indoor air pollution is highly affected by outdoor pollution; construction, vehicle emissions, and waste management, are just a few examples of outdoor pollutants. The particles from these pollutants can travel through different house openings, such as windows and doors, and make their way into your home. Aside from external pollutants, your home is already polluted by several factors: pet dander, dust, dirt, mold, and other debris. Understanding how to reduce indoor air pollution is important to assure you are living in a healthy environment with good indoor air quality.
Eliminate pollutants, such as dust, dander, and allergens, out of your home with the use of an air cleaner. For individuals who suffer with certain health conditions, such as asthma, indoor air pollutants can be a trigger. Additionally, a home with indoor pollution can lead to health problems such as headaches, sore throat, dizziness, rashes, and may increase the risk of cancer. Investing in an air cleaner safeguards your home from harmful pollutants and reduces the risk of health issues.
A humidifier will allow for a controlled and comfortable level of moisture within your space. When humidity levels are too low you may experience health symptoms such as dry skin, itchy nose, bloody nose, and scratchy throat. When humidity levels are too high, you may experience symptoms such as dehydration, irritated skin, and poor quality of sleep. Aside from health symptoms, your home may also experience symptoms such as mold, wet stains on the walls and ceilings, and split or cracked hardwood flooring. Investing in a home humidifier will improve your personal comfort, well-being, and structure of your home.
Ventilators allow for fresh outdoor air to be brought into your home. You may wonder, why not just open a window? Opening a window for fresh air results in energy loss. With a ventilator, you can experience the fresh air without the energy loss. An added benefit that ventilators offer is that they help remove excess humidity.
