With all the airborne particles that the average person is exposed to every day, it isn’t hard to understand that these pollutants affect our well-being. Air quality isn’t only relevant to the 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies. It affects everyone’s general health.
Fortunately, more and more people are recognizing the importance of indoor air quality. If you’re interested in making your home safer and more comfortable, One Call Heating and Air offers a number of air cleaners, ventilators, and related solutions.
Air Cleaners and Products for Managing Indoor Pollutants
The air inside your home is filled with an ever-changing assortment of allergens. Studies also show that chemicals from common household products can reach high concentrations inside homes and other confined spaces. In some cases, different management systems are needed for each type of pollutant.
- Particulates, including pollen, dust, pet dander and carpet fibers, are extremely diverse contaminants. They often cause airway irritation and trigger allergy symptoms. To control these allergens, we recommend air purifiers that work with your HVAC system to remove up to 99 percent of particulates.
- Volatile organic compounds are a group of gaseous chemicals that are released by many household products. These include paint, adhesives, cleaning products, fragrance-laden personal care items, and much more. Mechanical ventilators dilute pollutants like formaldehyde by replacing stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air.
- Germs are a fact of life, but you can control them. Germicidal air purifiers use electricity to disable bacteria and viruses that cause seasonal illnesses. UV lamps eliminate unpleasant odors by controlling microbes that live in the damp recesses of your HVAC system.
Humidity and Indoor Air Quality
Your home’s relative humidity has a significant effect on your indoor air quality. Different problems may occur depending on whether there’s too much or too little moisture. If your home is too humid, you may have trouble with foggy windows, organic growth, and allergens. If the air is too dry, you may experience respiratory discomfort among other issues.
To maintain a healthy indoor environment, we strive to keep the relative humidity between 40 and 50 percent. If you find that your home is too dry in the winter, we can install an air humidifier that releases precise amounts of water vapor. These products are ideal for balancing your home’s relative humidity throughout the year.
