If you have issues with allergies in the spring, then you know firsthand why air quality is important. With families spending more time together at home right now, your indoor air quality (IAQ) is more important than ever.
What is IAQ?
Your indoor air quality is a measure of the condition of the air both inside and around your home. The IAQ can affect not just your comfort but also your health. In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency has declared indoor air pollution to be one of the top five public health environmental risks.
Poor indoor air quality has links to health conditions like chronic headaches, fatigue, sinus congestion, coughing and sneezing, trouble concentrating, as well as irritation of the eyes, nose, throat and lungs. It can also aggravate pre-existing conditions in your family such as asthma or allergies.
Your indoor air quality can be improved by eliminating the sources of pollutants or reducing the effect of their emissions. The first place to start when eliminating pollutants is with regular HVAC system maintenance.
When you schedule a precision tune-up with MoreVent, our experts will check and adjust for proper ventilation, change filters that trap pollutants and clean the system out so that it is not recirculating dust, dirt and pollen through your home.
MoreVent also provides technologies to both filter and humidify the air in your home. The Clean Air Defense System AirRanger™ can trap even the smallest sub-micron particles in order to reduce pathogens, allergy symptoms and circulating dust/debris. It can also remove odors from your home resulting from mold, smoke or pet dander.
Trying to improve the cleanliness or smell in your home can sometimes actually affect your IAQ for the worse, but an air filter can help trap the harmful particles from deodorizers, cleaning chemicals or disinfectant sprays. Pads in the air filter need to be changed consistently, but little other maintenance is required.
UV Germicidal Lamps
Germicidal UVC lamps are another part of the Clean Air Defense System that can kill pathogens in your home’s air. Installed directly into your HVAC system, these lamps use ultraviolet light to attack mold and bacteria that can grow there due to its damp environment. The easy maintenance and quick installation of these lamps make them a simple solution to improve IAQ.
