Indoor Air Quality IAQ: Everyone can benefit from IAQ. According to the EPA the air inside most modern homes is one hundred times worse than the air outside. Even in the cities with the highest smog count, IAQ can help eleviate indoor air pollution. People with allergies and sensitive breating issues can benefit greatly. If you have young children at home, a proper air filter, ultraviolet light or an advanced air scrubber like the REME HALO is a pro-active way of keeping the air and even the surface areas in your home cleaner.
There are other substances that can polute the air in your home including: invisible gases like radon and CO2, as well as gas-emitting chemicals like formaldehyde used in making modern carpeting, drapery, household cleaners, furniture, and building materials.
Common airborne polllutants are pollen, viruses, dust and dust mites. Mold and mildew can grow and breed in damp areas or where there is standing water. Every air conditioning coil is damp and this is an area where all of the indoor air circulating through our house is passing through. A REME HALO air cleaner can destroy these harmful microbes. Combined with a whole house media filter, the air in your home can be scrubbed clean for a healther home.
Today’s homeowners are more aware of the importance of IAQ and should learn about the options for addressing the issues that IAQ can resolve. You owe it to you and your family. Don’t just treat the symptoms — remove the problems from the air in every room of your house — from your bedroom to your basement with an air cleaning system.
There are many types of air cleaners on the market today. An Air Cleaner installed by your heating and cooling contractor can help rid your home of dust, dust mites, pet dander, mold spores, pollen, bacteria and viruses, smoke and more! Don’t rely on cheap 1″ air filters. Some of those cheap filters (especially the fiberglass woven ones) will allow you to pour salt through them. Cheap air filters are inefficient for catching dust in your heating and air system. If you have one of these inefficient filters, try the salt test. Get some fine salt and pour some on your filter. Shake the filter and see if the salt falls through it. Dust particles are much smaller than salt particles
According to the American Lung Association: “Poor indoor air quality can cause or contribute to the development of chronic respiratory diseases such as asthma and hypersensitivity pneumonitis. In addition, it can cause headaches, dry eyes, nasal congestion, nausea, and fatigue. People who already have respiratory diseases are at greater risk.”
