Why Indoor Air Quality Matters
Today’s homes are built to conserve energy. This has resulted in better insulation, tighter windows and doors, and less exchange between the indoor air and the air outside. While this is great for reducing home energy costs, it causes diminished indoor air quality. Because the air is trapped inside the house, any contaminants in the air are also trapped inside.
Common contaminants in the air include:
- Pet dander
- Airborne contaminants
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has listed indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers. The presence of contaminants in the air can put your family at risk of allergy symptoms, respiratory illnesses, and other illnesses, which are caused by viruses and bacteria in the air. Whole house filtration systems can help remove the contaminants from the air to improve air quality.
Types of Whole House Filtration Systems
There are a few different options for cleaning the air in your home. When selecting a system for whole house filtration in Essex County, it is important to consider what needs to be improved in your air. Are you concerned about pet dander, pollen, and other allergens? Do you want a system that kills bacteria, viruses, and fungus?
Indoor air quality can be improved with:
- HEPA filters – HEPA filters are the industry standard for removing airborne particles from the air. As the air passes through the filter, it removes contaminants from the air to improve indoor air quality.
- Air cleaners – These products remove smaller particles than a HEPA filter. Air cleaners are installed in your HVAC system to filter the air and remove the contaminants, leaving your air cleaner and fresher.
- UV germicidal lights – Ultraviolet light is effective for eliminating airborne bacteria, viruses, and mold spores.
- Whole house humidifiers – Low humidity levels can cause dry air, which leads to irritation of the nose and throat. In addition, certain viruses thrive in low humidity environments. A whole house humidifier alleviates dryness and keeps the humidity at optimal levels.
