Poor outdoor air quality due to emissions from automobiles or industrial sources can impact your respiratory health, especially if you suffer from asthma or COPD. However, the air quality inside your Wildwood, FL, home can be just as detrimental to your health. Here are some reasons your indoor air quality is important, why you should improve it, and how to do it.
Safeguard Your Respiratory Health
Indoor air pollutants stem from stovetops, asbestos, household disinfectants, air fresheners, and cosmetics. Airborne particulates can cause coughs and shortness of breath and aggravate existing health conditions.
To maintain your health, improving air quality in your home is essential. Placing an air cleaner inside can minimize the number of particles.
Tobacco smoke and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can cause or worsen allergy symptoms. An energy recovery ventilator reduces the concentrations of vapors and gases inside that may be triggering an allergic reaction.
Simultaneously Reduce Humidity and Temperature
Poor ventilation, muggy conditions, and humidity cause elevated levels of indoor air pollutants. A dehumidifier removes moisture from the air, making your home safer and more comfortable.
Protect Your Child’s Well-Being
Poor indoor air quality has been linked to low birth weights and increased asthma risk in children. Clean indoor air is crucial, especially if you have young kids who are more susceptible to these threats.
As you can see, indoor air quality can have severe negative consequences. Take the time to understand how you can increase the air quality inside your home.
