Have you considered the effects that the airflow on the inside of your home is having on you or your families health?
We live in California where we have a beautiful landscape and great weather. But sometimes we have to experience pollution and smoke not only outside but also in the areas where we live and grow. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), refers to the condition of the air inside a building or home as it relates to the health of the individuals within. Understanding that our air quality system provides security to our families’ well-being may leave you evaluating your current home ventilation system and air purification. The two main types of pollutants are gaseous and particulate matter.
Gaseous pollutants (also known as Volatile Organic Compounds) like carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide can be produced by home appliances such as clothes dryers, wood/gas stoves, paints/solvents, and modern building materials. Particulate matter includes dust, dirt, soot, and tobacco smoke. Both of these are common contaminants for our household heating and air conditioning units to be rotating throughout the air we breathe.
In an attempt to seal our homes from the outside we end up relying more on our enclosed home ventilation system, which oftentimes creates a breeding ground for dust mites, bacteria/fungi, viruses, pollutants, and cleaning chemicals to circulate through the air systems as we consistently breathe these particles in. Oftentimes retailed air filtration and purifiers use ionizers to help attract these contaminants in order to settle them out of the air. Ionizers are devices that use high voltage to refine air substances by converting the negative atoms into charged molecules typically by striving to remove them altogether.
However, in an attempt to eradicate these pollutants the ionizers can produce ozone gases. These toxins can result in a variety of mild to severe health ramifications. We would advise all customers to not purchase or invest in any air cleaning system that is not regulated for ozone production. Short-term exposure can cause headaches, fatigue, nausea, coughing, allergic reactions as well as exacerbate conditions such as asthma and other lung/respiratory infections in the long term. If the problem goes undealt with serious sometimes fatal health conditions such as cancer and mold toxicity.
