Many Ways to Breathe Easier at Home
Decades ago, builders started constructing homes that were more air tight so people wouldn’t lose as much cooled and heated air because of gaps and other defects, like poor insulation. But this limited ventilation and trapped stale air inside. More problems were caused by the products people were bringing into their homes. Carpeting, disinfectants, fragrances, cosmetics and other common household items all were found to emit harmful toxins.
Since that time, there has been a troubling rise in the rates of respiratory illnesses like asthma. At one point, it was believed that this could be traced to outdoor air pollution. But more studies confirmed that the real problem was indoor air pollution.
Today, the home comfort industry has techniques for analyzing indoor air quality, including the collection of air samples and computer modeling of air flow inside a home. This allows companies like us to understand the reasons why the air inside a home is unhealthy and helps us to offer strategies for improvement. This includes air cleaning systems, air purifiers and humidification systems. Stale indoor air can also be replaced with fresh, clean air from outdoors with a device called an air-to-air exchanger.
