Indoor Air Quality
– According to the Environmental Protection Agency –
Indoor air can be up to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air.
There are a few things that can be done that may provide better quality air circulating in your home. Air humidifiers and UV lighting systems can both be an effective way of improving the air quality if desired.
Overly dry air is often associated with itchy, cracked skin, dry nasal passages, and damaged woodwork & furniture. Adding a humidifier can help alleviate these problems by creating and circulating more moisture throughout the home.
Humidifiers can also save you money on your energy bills, due to the fact that humidified air actually feels warmer than dry air and therefore your thermostat can be set to a lower temperature.
