A lot of homeowners don’t realize this, but the air inside their homes can be of worse quality than the air outside. At least, this will be the case if you don’t have the right indoor air quality solutions in place. This is particularly true if your home was built in the last few decades. Today’s dwellings are built “tightly,” which allows for high energy efficiency since no conditioned or heated air, depending on the season, can escape.
This is fantastic news for HVAC efficiency, and will help keep your utility bills low, but it’s not such great news if you suffer from allergies or asthma symptoms. Since no air can get out, this also means that contaminants such as pollen, dirt, dust, and pet dander don’t have a way out as well. Even the healthiest individual can be negatively impacted by poor indoor air quality. So, what’s the answer? Read on as we uncover how to prioritize the health of your indoor air.
