The quality of the indoor air depends on many factors; inadequate humidity, chemicals, mold, fungi and other air contaminants as well as poor ventilation alter the quality of the air and cause different problems and health risks
Signs of poor indoor air quality include: low humidity levels and very dry air, that will create the predisposition to allergies and respiratory problems, irritations of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin, headaches, fatigue, sinus congestion and more. These symptoms are known as Sick Building Syndrome or Building-Related Illness.
Littleton and Highlands Ranch HVAC contractors are able to offer many products and solutions designed to improve the indoor air quality in a residential or commercial building: air purification systems, energy recovery ventilators, home humidifiers, smart thermostats and more. However, it is particularly important to control the source of pollutants instead of increasing ventilation and the energy costs along with it, so reduce as much as possible the activities that can generate high levels of pollutants (painting, cooking, doing hobby activities that may involve the use of toxic substances or particles etc.).
Last but not least, keep in mind that one of the basic things you can do to maintain the quality of the indoor air is to regularly check and clean or replace the air filters of your cooling/ ventilating system.
