In Home Air Exchangers
Indoor air pollution can contribute to a number of health problems, even in healthy persons. There are a number of causes of poor indoor air quality, and these causes include poor ventilation, dust from remodeling, mold, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from cleaning supplies and personal care products, construction materials, and paint are a few of the most common. Treatment begins by providing fresh air with in home air exchangers through the homes heating and air conditioning system.
Specific diseases have been linked directly to specific air contaminants or indoor environments. For example, a direct correlation has been established between asthma and damp indoor environments. Furthermore, exposure to hazards such as asbestos and radon, do not cause immediate symptoms but can lead to cancer many years later.
The research indicates more than 50% of U.S. homes have concentrations of pollutants indoors exceeding those outdoors. Today’s homes are so well sealed and insulated that they trap humidity and pollutants indoors with no means of escape.
Providing clean air begins with ventilation, and the removal of polluted air with in home air exchangers, and air purification through filtration. Sophisticated air exchangers reduce the loss of conditioned air from your heating and air conditioning system, while moving polluted air to the outdoors, and bringing clean air indoors. Ventilation combined with filtration reduces and removes airborne pollutants and excess humidity from indoor air, providing relief for those with respiratory ailments, and prevent illness from contaminants.
