Indoor Air Quality Improvement

Jan 18

All of us are exposed to various dangers that we cannot avoid just by being human. Poor indoor air quality is just one of the additional dangers that we can avoid. While many people are aware of the negative effects of air pollution on health but they aren't aware that it has an impact on both the quality of outdoor and indoor air.


One of the things that we have with everyone else in the world is air. If we're to breathe, we have to take measures to ensure that we are consuming high-quality air. We are not in control of the quality of the air outside, but we can control the quality of the air in our homes. For the protection of residents' health, it's essential to be able to control the indoor air quality of their dwellings. This can easily be accomplished by an HVAC company based in Colorado Springs.




According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American spends 90percent of their time inside, where pollutants can be two to five times higher than those who live outside. Air pollution can directly impact the health of a person, with lasting or immediate consequences.


The effects of poor indoor air quality are frequently curable and temporary. Air quality is frequently overlooked due to the fact that the immediate consequences of poor indoor air quality such as coughing and sinus congestion, are often misdiagnosed as typical diseases. The effects that are delayed by air pollution could be fatal for those who are at risk, including the aged, children, and those who have compromised immune systems. The effects that are delayed are usually not visible until it's already too late. This is why it is important to ensure that indoor air quality is maintained.


What are the reasons for AIR POLLUTION at night?


Because pollutants are hard to identify, homeowners are often unaware that they exist. Formaldehyde from new furniture wall paint inadequate insulation, cleaners and lead are all sources of hazardous particles that can contribute to poor indoor air quality. It is known the dangers of pollution. But, it's not known how people will react to it or how they will feel with no clean air.




The index of air quality (AQI) determines the presence of primary air pollutants having a higher score meaning the presence of more dangerous pollution. The index ranges between 0-500, and any pollutant that scores higher than 300 indicates poor air quality. The EPA's indoor quality threshold is 100, with anything that is higher than this being considered unhealthy. This criterion is in place to protect the health of the public.


Many factors determine indoor air QUALITY.


Inorganic, dangerous chemicals and carcinogens are present in every home. In order to maintain the quality of air in your home, it can be as simple as cleaning and using safe paints and cleaning supplies. Air purifiers are a great aid to humidity control however, they will only be effective to a certain extent. Increased ventilation within a house is an easy method to decrease the number of hazardous pollutants, but it will also add to the energy bill. A lot of indoor air quality issues are deep-seated and require the expertise of a specialist to address.


An energy audit of your home will aid in determining how much fresh air is coming into your home. You can then compare that to the health and safety standards to ensure the best quality of indoor air. The home energy audits we provide will also discover spots in which allergens and dust enter your home, affecting your air quality, and also ways to protect the area.
