4 Benefits of Clean Indoor Air

Home comfort and air quality are synonymous, and Wilmington Heating & Cooling goes above and beyond mere HVAC equipment to offer homeowners a healthier indoor air environment year-round. In the following, we list but a few of the benefits of having nutritional indoor air quality:

Improves Sleep Quality

Healthy indoor air quality means those inside the home are less likely to get sick or develop breathing issues. Clean home air quality helps optimize rest, which reduces stress and improves sleep. Cooler temperatures also allow us to sleep better. It’s natural for our bodies to relax in cooler temperatures, and a good AC unit that improves indoor air goes a long way.

Healthier Environment

Nothing makes us appreciate air quality more than a health issue caused by poor quality problems in our home. The more polluted the air in a dwelling, the more easily the people living there can fall prey to allergies, asthma, and other breathing ailments. Even small amounts of indoor pollution can negatively affect our health, well being and levels of stress. Poor air quality hinders optimal health and energy levels.

Decrease in Heating & Cooling Bills

Sometimes, homeowners attempt to keep heating and cooling bills low by turning off the air conditioner and turning back on when they get hot or humid. Turning it off and on is hard on the equipment and it makes your unit work harder. Upgrading to a newer AC will help improve air quality. The better running system enables you to keep your home cool efficiently. Newer equipment is a lot more affordable to run as well, and can even end up paying for itself in a fairly short period of time.

Remove Pollutants & Allergens

When we experience allergic reactions to something, it’s our body’s way of telling us it can’t tolerate whatever it’s taking in, or breathing in. This means the more someone gets exposed to airborne allergens, the more likely they are to get ill. Proper air quality allows the body to recover properly. This way you can be at your best when you do go outside.

What is Indoor Air Quality?

As the name suggests, “Indoor Air Quality” is a term that refers to the quality of air inside buildings and structures, especially as this air can affect the health, well-being, and comfort of the building’s occupants. In most homes, this means those residing in the structure as well as those who are staying and visiting. National studies performed by the EPA indicate indoor air can be 3 to 5 times more polluted or contaminated than outdoor air.

To make matters worse, these air-tight homes don’t have natural ventilation to bring in the fresh air. Meanwhile, everyday living often generates airborne contaminants like dust, dirt, and dander. Homeowners have to be mindful of these things in addition to the use of cleaning supplies, personal hygiene products, and food preparation. All sorts of pollutants end up getting trapped in the home because there’s not enough ventilation and they end up getting recirculated through the home’s air ducts. To improve air quality, Wilmington Heating & Cooling offers a wide range of products and services that work alongside your home’s existing heating and cooling equipment.

Why is IAQ Important?

Many studies conducted throughout the nation show that air pollution in our homes can be more of a health concern than air pollution outside our homes. Indoor pollutant levels are often, in fact, a lot higher or worse than levels outside the home. Essentially, there are three main reasons why indoor air quality is becoming more of a health concern in homes throughout the nation:

  • The average person spends about 90% of their time indoors in the U.S.
  • Toxic chemicals are used inside the home inside of building materials, cleaning solutions, furnishings, pesticides, food preparation, and personal care products.
  • Most homes are made air-tight and often lack ventilation.

Health effects from poor indoor air quality or indoor air pollution range from minor to serious, depending on the sort of problem and the situation. Health effects can include headaches, tiredness, nausea, dizziness, an itchy nose, irritated eyes, and a scratchy throat. These symptoms typically go away when the person being exposed leaves the building or room.
