Prioritizing your Seminole, FL, home’s indoor air quality can improve your health and reduce the cost of your energy bills. Here are some other reasons to invest in your indoor air quality.
1. Prevent Allergies and Diseases
You probably spend a lot of time indoors, where you can become ill if the air you breathe contains contaminants such as dust, pet dander or other allergens. Maintaining high indoor air quality lessens the risk of contracting asthma, sinus infections and colds.
2. Control Indoor Humidity
Humid air full of moisture and the presence of air contaminants such as dust negatively affect your indoor air quality. Moist conditions inside your home can cause stuffiness and shorts in electrical appliances. That’s why you need to consider moisture control options like dehumidifiers.
Dry winter air can aggravate breathing complications and skin issues. In the unlikely event that the air in your Seminole, FL, home gets too dry, you can consider installing a humidifier or vaporizer.
3. Save on Energy Bills and Repair Expenses
If your air is free from pollutants, your air filter and ductwork are most likely clean, maintaining good airflow and keeping your HVAC system running efficiently. That will result in lower energy bills and minimal wear and tear on the system’s components. Minimizing strain on your system will also minimize repairs, saving you some hard-earned cash.
4. Boost Productivity
If you own a business or work from home, productivity is key to your success. Poor indoor air quality is one reason for low productivity. Higher levels of CO2 in populated offices can lead to headaches, fatigue, restlessness and drowsiness.
Research shows that CO2 affects human brain functions. Too much of it may interfere with your concentration and even your decision making. Consider investing in indoor air quality techniques to purify and warm your office air.
