These days, many homeowners are attempting to optimize their living space by making it as healthy and functional as possible. However, many of these homeowners are unaware that indoor air quality can play a primary role in determining the quality of one’s private living space. To learn more about this important issue, please review the brief outline that appears below.
The Importance Of Indoor Air Quality
Indoor air quality is an important topic to discuss for many reasons, including the fact that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that exposure to pollutants in the air can greatly exceed those found outdoors. Although broadly defined, air quality basically references how clean and well-functioning the air coming from your AC is. There are a plethora of factors that can compromise the purity of your air, some of which can include dirt and debris in your filter. When your air becomes impure and you ingest it, you can expose yourself and other loved ones to a plethora of health problems. Some of these problems include dry, itchy eyes and allergy-type symptoms such as watery eyes and sneezing.
Determining Your Indoor Air QualityIn order to determine the air quality of an individual’s home, professionals will collect air samples, monitor human exposure to possible contaminants, and collect samples on the surfaces of the building. Indoor air quality is classified as a component under the broader umbrella of indoor environmental quality (IEQ), and this wider field also includes the psychological and physical aspects of indoor life such as thermal comfort, acoustics, visual quality, and lighting.
What Does An Air Handler Do For My System?
Air handlers are helpful for your AC system because they circulate conditioned air that has been produced by HVAC machines in your house. When you have a high quality air handler, it is quite easy to humidify, dehumidify, or filter your air stream whenever necessary.
