Stay Healthy with an Indoor Air Quality System

We spend about 87% of our lives indoors, but we rarely think of the quality of the air we breathe when indoors. Unlike outdoor air, indoor air is recycled continuously, causing it to trap pollutants that can be detrimental to our health. An excellent indoor air quality system is crucial to staying healthy and living comfortably in your Essex County, MA home. While you can easily install an indoor air quality system in your HVAC system, it’s advisable to work with a professional to ensure proper installation. Similarly, you should seek help from a professional when addressing any issues regarding your system.

When properly installed and maintained, indoor air quality systems can be beneficial.

Top 6 Benefits of an Indoor Air Quality System

1.     Breath Easier

We all tend not to take a keen interest in our breathing until we develop a health problem. Breathing contaminated air increases our chances of flare-ups of allergies, asthma, and other breathing illnesses. Even a small amount of indoor pollutants can increase our stress levels and compromise our health. Indoor air quality systems can help reduce or eliminate the concentration of air pollutants in your home to ensure you breathe easier all year long.

2.     Sleep Better

Airborne pollutants and various contaminants that irritate the respiratory system can deprive you of a good night’s sleep. Breathing in clean air not only means we are less likely to get sick but also allows us to rest easier. This reduction in our stress level means that sleep can come more readily. Additionally, cooler air temperatures can also help us sleep better. A good AC can improve our ability to rest and sleep, especially since our bodies naturally relax in cooler temperatures.

3.     Get Rid of Contaminants and Allergens

Airborne particles, such as dust, mold spores, animal dander, etc., can cause allergies and other respiratory problems. While maintaining good ventilation and frequently vacuuming your house may help, installing an indoor air quality system can do wonders for your home and health. An indoor air quality system can get rid of most contaminants and pollutants, giving you and your family much cleaner air to breathe.

When you have good clean air, you’ll be less likely to become ill, and your body will be better able to rest while you’re indoors.

4.     Balance Humidity

Too little or too much humidity can create a conducive environment for pest infestation. It can also cause mold growth. An indoor air quality system can help ensure that your HVAC runs efficiently. This means balanced humidity and better airflow and ventilation.

5.     Eliminate Odors

When you smell something bad in your home and want to get rid of it, your first instinct would probably be to spray some air freshener. But air fresheners don’t address the problem at the source. An indoor air quality system will actively eliminate any odor-causing contaminants from your indoor air, ensuring that your home air stays fresh.

6.     Lower Utility Bills

Most people try to keep their utility bills low by turning the air conditioner (AC) off and switching it on only when they get hot. This is actually inefficient and makes your AC work harder by having to play catch up. An indoor air quality system can help efficiently keep your home cool by avoiding temperature dips that are difficult to recover from.
