Every day we are warned about the dangers to our health of outdoor pollutants; however, the quality of our indoor air is even more important. Current research indicates that people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors, especially during cold winter months. This means that most of the air we breathe is indoor air, which is often laden with pollutants like dust, smoke, and mold. Even furniture and cleaning supplies can release harmful particles into the air. These pollutants, left unchecked, can severely damage one’s health and quality of life.
Fortunately, there are measures one can take to reduce home air contaminants. One of the most effective ways to clean the air is with indoor air quality control systems. The benefits of using these systems are numerous. Most importantly, they will improve your health by reducing your exposure to damaging contaminants and increasing your comfort level in the home. This is especially important for homes with children or the elderly, as these individuals are more susceptible to air pollution. In addition, allergy sufferers will greatly benefit by the reduction of dust, animal dander, mold, and pollen from the outdoors. Those with respiratory problems and asthma may also notice a significant change for the better when using indoor air quality control systems.
Haley Comfort Systems approach air quality control with four different technologies: air cleaners, which filter and purify the air, removing harmful contaminants; recovery ventilators, which bring in temperature-controlled fresh air from outdoors; humidifiers and dehumidifiers, to ensure a comfortable moisture level; and ultraviolet (UV) lights, which prevent the growth of bacteria, mold, and fungus. Combining all of these technologies can reduce up to 99% of harmful pollutants in your indoor air, making your home safer and healthier for you and your family. If you have never had your air ducts cleaned you may want to consider that as well to get rid of possible mold, dust and other debris particles.
