Indoor Air Quality

Did you know that the air you breathe inside your home influences your health? Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of indoor air as it pertains to your comfort and health. Unfortunately, a majority of homeowners often neglect this important aspect of indoor living, which can lead to negative health effects for them and everyone else living in their home. Indoor air quality should be everyone’s concern.

Studies have shown that we spend up to 90 percent of our time indoors, ultimately proving the severity of the situation when indoor air quality is ignored.

Concerns of Poor Indoor Air Quality

Indoor air quality issues naturally develop over time. Indoor air quality issues can range from mild to severe depending on  a large number of factorsincluding location, season, lifestyle, activities, condition of HVAC equipment, and presence of building components and furnishings. Any of these issues can create IAQ problems or perpetuate existing ones that negatively impact your health.

For example, pollen can be a major IAQ concern for specific areas during the spring, particularly to those who suffer from allergies. The homeowner’s lifestyle can also seriously impact indoor air quality; if a homeowner smokes indoors, for example, the quality of the air in the home will suffer severely. The condition of the HVAC equipment is also an important factor in determining a building’s indoor air quality. Leaky or dirty ductwork can compromise the quality of the air you breathe. Finally, building components and furnishings are unexpected contributors to poor indoor air quality due to their release of volatile organic compounds, which are dangerous to your health.

How to Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

It’s clear that there’s a need for an effective solution to poor quality air in your home or business and the threats associated with it. Zen Air offers industry-leading indoor air quality services that address even the most complex indoor air quality issues. The following list of products are among the best in the industry for cleaning the air inside your home or business:

  • Air Purifiers: Air purifiers pull contaminants directly out of the air. Think of it as your first line of defense against common household air pollutants. The purification process is simple, effective, and very beneficial to your health.
  • Air Humidifiers: One factor that plays into indoor air quality is the humidity level. Humidity, both high and low levels, can have major impacts on your indoor air quality. High levels of humidity facilitate the growth of mold, and mold spores are damaging to your health when breathed in. Low levels of humidity allow air pollutants to remain suspended in the air, inevitably being breathed in by a building’s inhabitants. By controlling and maintaining a consistent, appropriate level of humidity, your air is healthier to breathe because air pollutants sink to the floor and are unlikely to be inhaled. Good humidity levels also help to improve dry skin conditions and prevent wood furniture from cracking.
  • Fresh Air Ventilators: Fresh air is one of the best ways to improve indoor air quality. Mechanical ventilators attach to your air distribution system and introduce a controlled amount of outdoor air into the home or business. While the fresh, outdoor air is brough in, an equal amount of stale, indoor air is brought out. Replenishing your home with fresh air can make a huge difference in your home’s or business’s indoor air quality.
  • UV Lamps: Harmful bacteria pose a threat to your family’s health. To reduce illnesses in your home, UV lamps can be installed in your system’s ductwork. These lights will destroy harmful bacteria with ultraviolet light before they make it to the outside air.
