Indoor Air Quality Facts
IAQ services in the greater Charlotte, North Carolina area.
Most homeowners throughout Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas don’t pay much attention to their indoor air quality (IAQ). The majority of these homeowners are really only concerned with their home comfort and their indoor temperature. When the heat and humidity of summer begins to rise and when the chill of winter begins to surface, it’s imperative to have a properly functioning heating and air conditioning system. But did you know that the temperature in your home is not the only factor in your home comfort? Your IAQ can play a role in your home comfort too. Here are some indoor air quality facts to consider.
Did you know that your Indoor Air Quality can be up to 2 – 5 times more polluted than the air outside?
Your indoor air quality refers to a number of different factors. The humidity level in your home, the amount of pollutants and contaminants in your air, the volatile compounds your appliances produce, the chemicals in your cleaning products & synthetic air fresheners, the amount of dirt, debris, dust, and pollen residing in your HVAC ductwork, and more.
All of these contaminants are not only harmful to your heating and air conditioning system, they are harmful to your health as well. You and your family members can experience symptoms like:
- difficulty breathing,
- and even respiratory disease
