Why Does Air Quality Matter?
Poor indoor air quality negatively affects human health: it may cause symptoms such as itchy eyes, irritated throat, sneezing, wheezing, headaches, dizziness, and fatigue. Long-term exposure to certain pollutants can even lead to respiratory illness, cancer, or heart disease.
What causes poor indoor air quality? Low indoor air quality is typically the result of pollutants inside the house, including tobacco products, cleaning products, building materials, pet dander, fresh paint, new carpeting, fuel-burning appliances, and more. Pollution, pesticides, and gases from outdoor air can also negatively affect indoor air quality. Indoor air quality is also impacted by humidity and poor ventilation inside the home.
Much like outdoor air quality, which is measured by the Air Quality Index, indoor air quality can also be measured. This is done by taking samples of the air, collecting samples from the surfaces inside the house, computer modeling of airflow, and monitoring human exposure.
Types Of Air Purifiers And Air Filtration Systems
A good way to improve indoor air quality in Thibodaux is to install an air purifier or air filtration system. There are several types of systems that can help; these are just a few:
- UV air sanitizer: UV air sanitizers use short-wave ultraviolet light to kill harmful pathogens as the air passes through. There is also a built-in HEPA filter to filter out dust and particles. These are highly effective at eliminating organic microbes, such as viruses, bacteria, and mildew. This option is good for families particularly worried about the spread of illness.
- Air purifier: The traditional air purifier uses a filter to trap harmful pollutants. Some models include humidifiers and dehumidifiers for improved air quality. Many are advanced enough to eliminate smoke, dander, and other microscopic particles. This option is great for homes with no ductwork or places where single-room purification is all that is required.
- Whole-home air purifier: Usually added onto the HVAC system, attached to the furnace, or built into the ductwork, a whole-home air purifier cleans the air with a filter but on a larger scale. It cleans the air before it is delivered through the vents. This option may be best for complete peace of mind.
Humidity is also a common concern in the Louisiana area. Be sure to ask about our dehumidifiers installation services, and take control over the air quality in your home.
Why Professional Installation Is Best
Some types of air cleaners can be set up yourself, but many models are best left to the professionals. This is because trained professionals understand the physics of air movement and will be able to help you choose exactly what type of filtration system you need.
Licensed HVAC technicians already have all the tools needed to install air filtration systems quickly and safely--no need to worry about working with electrical wires or running to the hardware store for an expensive tool.
