We spend an average of 90% of our time inside. Good indoor air quality is important to our health and wellbeing. While many of us are familiar with the dangers of air pollution in outdoor environments as well as public spaces, we’re not as aware of the negative consequences of breathing impure air when at home! Or at least we don’t tend to focus on improving the indoor air quality. And that is an irony since we spend a large part of our lives … indoors.
Ensuring a clean home environment, with pure air to breathe, is one of the primary requisites of good health and wellness. As such, good indoor air quality is one of our basic necessities and shouldn’t even be an option to consider. However that sadly isn’t the case. Many homeowners are stringent about their housekeeping and dusting schedules to make sure their homes stay spick and span and free of dust – which is important, no doubt. But what about improving the quality of air at home?
The air that you breathe indoors contains multiple pollutants, which may be hazardous to your health. These pollutants range from minor irritants, such as dust and animal dander, to major concerns, like molds and chemical vapor. Since these noxious elements are largely invisible to the naked eye, they go unnoticed and hence untreated, which can lead to serious ill effects for the health of you and your family over the long term.
Why You Need Indoor Air Quality Improvement in Ottawa
Regardless of the type of HVAC system you have in your home, it’s indispensable for maintaining your home temperature at a comfortable range throughout the year. However, the heating and cooling system, with its air ducts and various other components, can also be the breeding ground for harmful bacteria and dust particles.
As the air circulates through the ducts, vents, and other parts of the HVAC system to undergo heating (or cooling), the dust particles commonly found in the air tend to accumulate on them. Over time, a large amount of air passes through the system, which makes the buildup of dust on the surfaces of its components inevitable. Besides dust, other harmful microbes, pollen, dander, and mildew also tend to accumulate there. Hence the need for regular duct cleaning cannot be underestimated.
