We all close up our homes as tightly as possible during the winter so we don’t lose heat or waste money. But this also traps dust, pet dander, and other contaminants in, too. Poor indoor air quality has become a leading health concern, says the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—and more and more homeowners are asking experts like Roth Heating what they can be doing to improve theirs.
A number of things contribute to poor indoor air quality, including inadequate ventilation, dampness, poor upkeep of your heating and cooling systems, and high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). VOCs are gases emitted from common household products, like:
When high levels of VOCs are present, you may feel dizzy, confused, and fatigued, or experience headaches, coughing, or wheezing. Long-term health effects include worsening of asthma and allergies, or even lung cancer in severe, prolonged cases.
Having your IAQ tested by a professional is a great way to learn more about your home’s air quality and which products can improve it to keep your family safe. Our pros are proud to recommend these effective IAQ products from Carrier®:
You should also replace your air filters regularly (as recommended or when they look dirty), open your windows to let fresh air in as often as you can, and add more live plants to your décor.
Even if you think your air is fine, you might be surprised by what an indoor air analysis finds, and pleasantly surprised by how good you feel after Roth Heating helps you clean the air. Give us a call or contact us today to get started.
