Were you aware that the air within your household can be lower quality than the air outdoors? At least, this is the case if your home isn’t equipped with the right indoor air quality systems and services. It’s even more likely that your air quality is bad if you have a modern home–one built in the last couple of decades or so. The reason being homes today are built very “tightly” to prevent conditioned air from escaping.
This is good news for your HVAC efficiency since there won’t be any heating or cooling loss. Unfortunately, this traps contaminants inside. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, or if anyone in your home does, this definitely isn’t great news. Things like pollen, dirt, dust, and pet dander don’t have a way out of your home, and this is what contributes to the poor air quality. So, what can you do about it?
