SAFER INDOOR AIR QUALITY WITH A QUIETCOOL WHOLE HOUSE FANS
Indoor air quality is a crucial aspect of maintaining a healthy and comfortable home. Unfortunately, many homeowners are unaware of the potential dangers that poor indoor air quality can pose to their health and the health of their families. In this article, we will discuss the importance of indoor air quality for homeowners and ways to improve it.
Poor indoor air quality can lead to a variety of health problems, including allergies, asthma, and respiratory infections. This is because the air inside our homes is often more polluted than the air outside, due to a variety of factors such as mold, dust, and chemicals from cleaning products and other household items. In addition, many homes are built to be energy efficient, which can trap pollutants inside. This makes it even more important for homeowners to be aware of the quality of the air in their homes and take steps to improve it.
One of the most effective ways to improve indoor air quality is to increase ventilation.
According to the Lung Association, effective ventilation may also help keep bacteria, viruses, and other pollutants out of the indoor air. Research shows that airflow and ventilation can alter how diseases spread indoors. The more stagnant the air is, the more likely diseases are to spread. Like the lungs, homes need to be able to breathe to make sure that fresh air comes in and dirty air goes out. Indoor air can build up high levels of moisture, odors, gases, dust, and other air pollutants. To keep the air safe indoors, fresh outdoor air is needed to dilute these indoor pollutants.
Further, Harvard University has found that ventilation is a crucial part of how viruses and bacteria spread within indoor environments. Recirculating air in buildings such as your home can lead to a higher risk of infection during outbreaks. Even minimum ventilation can cut influenza transmission by as much as 50 to 60 percent. of the people in the building vaccinated.
