Your home is the one place where you can truly relax: alone or with your family, doing activities or just spending a lazy Sunday on the couch. Your home is a special place, and you would do anything to keep it safe.
Likewise, in your office or business premises, you spend enormous time doing multiple activities and interacting with others.
But there’s a hidden danger lurking in that safe space that many homeowners don’t consider.
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the way we measure the cleanliness of the air in and around buildings. IAQ also considers the building occupants’ health, which is essential because most people spend about 90% of their lives indoors.
You probably can’t take direct action to change the IAQ of most of the buildings you frequent, but you can make sure that the air in your home is safe to breathe and contributes to a happy, healthy space.
As we discussed earlier, your home’s HVAC system acts like your lungs, and if those lungs are riddled with pollutants, allergenic particles, dirt, and dust, it’s possible that the same stuff can affect your health. That’s why our HVAC technicians are always on the lookout to properly maintain the ventilation and duct systems in your home or office.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that even a single exposure to air pollutants can cause ear, nose and throat irritation, as well as as well as headaches, dizziness and fatigue.
