Sources of Indoor Air Pollution
Residents in the Longwood, Winter Park, and Orlando, FL regions are often surprised to learn that the air inside the average home is more polluted than the air outdoors. Contaminants originate from a variety of sources. Products like paint, air fresheners, and personal care products often contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which emit chemical vapors continuously into the air.
Allergens like pollen and animal dander hitch a ride indoors on clothing and hair. Vacuuming, dusting, cooking, cleaning — even your normal household activities generate airborne pollutants that get trapped indoors.
Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Good housekeeping helps mitigate the effects of indoor pollution, but it can only go so far. The most dangerous contaminants are the tiny particulates too small to see. Air cleaners installed to work with central HVAC systems help eliminate microscopic particles that get inhaled deep into your lungs.
- Fitted into the ductwork of your HVAC system, correctly sized air filters help prevent contaminants from circulating throughout your home.
- Air purifiers fitted with electrostatic plates can attract, trap, and destroy harmful particulates as small as 0.30 microns in size.
- Designed to work with your AC system, an air dehumidifier will remove unnecessary moisture buildup in the air.
The Importance of Proper Ventilation
With nowhere to go, indoor air pollutants circulate throughout your home repeatedly. Repeated exposure to tiny particulates has long-term effects on your health and well-being. Allow fresh air into your home by opening windows and doors to improve indoor air quality. Unfortunately, that's rarely practical. Energy recovery ventilators offer a cost-effective alternative. These whole-home systems capture energy from the outgoing air to filter that air they bring indoors. You'll enjoy the benefits of fresh, clean air without busting your budget.
