A Whole-Home Ventilator is a Wise Investment
You might be surprised to learn that the air in your La Quinta, CA home is more polluted than the outdoor air. According to the University of Rochester Medical Center, exposure to indoor air pollutants may cause serious health effects, especially for babies, children, pregnant women, senior citizens, and people with breathing disorders. Fortunately, a whole-home ventilator offers an efficient way to maintain healthy indoor air all year long. Let’s take a look at what makes these indoor air quality solutions a wise investment.
Reduce Volatile Organic Compounds
Many of the items in your home release volatile organic compounds. The American Lung Association notes that furniture, flooring, paint, adhesives, cleaners, air fresheners, cosmetics, and disinfectants are common sources of these chemicals. Breathing volatile organic compounds into your lungs may irritate your nose, throat, and lungs. These chemicals may trigger asthma symptoms, and some of the chemicals increase your risk of cancer. Whole-home ventilators disperse these chemicals to the outdoors and bring in fresh, clean air for you to breathe.
Everyday activities, including cleaning and cooking, generate odors that make breathing unpleasant. The fumes from cleaning may trigger allergies or asthma symptoms. When cooking odors linger, you may develop nausea or a headache. Whole-home ventilators push the stale, stinky air outdoors and bring in fresh, odor-free air.
Maintain an Ideal Humidity Level
Showering, washing dishes or laundry, and cooking all add humidity to your home. Excess humidity fuels organic growth and other allergens. A whole-home ventilator helps remove some of the excess moisture from your home’s air, making it easier for you to breathe. By helping you keep the indoor humidity level between 30% and 50%, whole-home ventilators also protect belongings made from fabric, paper, wood, and other organic materials from damage.
