Indoor Air Quality
Healthy Indoor Air Quality Solutions for Better Living
Complete home comfort is about more than just temperature – it’s also about maintaining a healthy home with indoor air quality.
We exercise and watch what we eat. But what about the air in our homes? Is it healthy? Probably not. Dust, dirt, pollen, mold spores, smoke, etc., make untreated indoor air up to 100 times worse than outdoor air.
Dusty, dirty homes at any temperature can mean discomfort. The air in today’s tightly-sealed, well-insulated homes can become stale as the same indoor air is circulated and re-circulated.
In fact, indoor air quality is among the Environmental Protection Agency’s top 3 health concerns. The agency reports that with dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, skin flakes, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke, Radon gas and more, the air inside your home can be up to five times dirtier than the air outside. And since we spend 90% of our time indoors, here are some things to consider.
A clean home includes having clean air. Pollen, animal dander, smoke, bacteria and other pollutants naked to the human eye exist in our homes. A Carrier air purifer traps and kills pollutants as small as 0.01 microns – that’s 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin.
Improve your home’s health by enhancing the quality of the air inside. Humidifiers help you control air moisture, ventilators bring fresh air into your home, air filters clean the air before it circulates, advanced ultraviolet lamps eliminate germs and bacteria, and carbon monoxide alarms measure and detect CO levels in the home.
