Indoor air quality refers to pollution in your Voorhees home or workplace. The concentration of airborne pollutants can be 2–5 times greater than outdoors. Considering that most people spend 90% of their time inside and breathe roughly 3,000 gallons of air each day (according to the American Lung Association), this can eventually lead to problems.
Depending on your specific air quality concerns, solutions include:
Some of the most common sources of pollutants include Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs) such as cleaning or personal care products, fuel-burning utilities and home appliances, and particulate matter like dust, pollen and smoke.
Without A Doubt. Pollutants and particulate matter can promote illnesses and worsen respiratory conditions, particularly for children and the elderly. For certain contaminants like CO, the effects may even be deadly.
Solving indoor air quality concerns can result in a host of benefits to your health and well-being, such as:
If you find yourself cleaning every day or coughing constantly, your indoor air may be the reason why. According to EPA studies, indoor pollutants can reach concentrations as much as 100 times higher than the air outdoors. You can find out your indoor air quality by scheduling a Home Health® Report consultation with Atmostemp Service Experts.
Each homeowner has their definition of “indoor comfort”, especially if someone in your Voorhees home has allergies, asthma or a weak immune system. You may require a single product like a high-performance air filtration system, or multiple. Atmostemp Service Experts can help you find the right pairing of equipment.
No. HVAC air filters are different in quality and design, and some have exclusive features. We generally support using the filter your HVAC manufacturer recommends pairing with your system. All filters are assigned MERV ratings on a scale from 1–20. MERV stands for Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value and can help you identify high-efficiency filters. In most cases, a MERV rating of 11 or lower will be sufficient.
The optimal schedule for cleaning or replacing your air filter depends on multiple factors, like the filter design and MERV rating as well as the current indoor air quality. For standard 1”-3” filters, most brands encourage replacement every 30-90 days. Pets, health conditions and even nearby pollution sources can encourage replacing the filter more often.
Presuming the condition is not your body’s hydration, extremely dry air can irritate your throat and sinuses. Look at buying a whole-home humidifier if you continuously struggle with a dry, itchy throat.
Your HVAC system removes moisture as it operates, leading to situations where humidity levels fall out of balance. Portable humidifiers can resolve humidity concerns in a single room or small area, but a central humidifier ensures balanced humidity throughout the whole home.
For many, comfortable humidity levels are between 30-60%. These levels are particularly hard to maintain in the winter, as cold air does not hold onto moisture as well as warm air. What’s more, your furnace displaces moisture by generating hot, dry heat.
The wisest way to choose an appropriate whole-house humidifier is multiplying the total square footage by the height of the ceiling. This will help determine how many gallons of water/H2O is required every hour to ensure balanced humidity.
You should also consider your available budget, as a humidifier needs maintenance just like any other mechanical device.
That depends entirely on the equipment purchased, but usually whole-house humidifiers average between 1.5 to 12 gallons per day. Obviously, dry climates will use more water to keep humidity balanced.
Routine preventive maintenance is often vital for lasting equipment efficiency, and your humidifier is no different. The humidifier’s reservoir should be routinely drained and cleaned to prevent mold.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless and tasteless gas released by partial fuel combustionthat is frequently caused by insufficient access to oxygen. Appliances relying on natural gas, charcoal, wood or kerosene are common sources of CO gas, particularly if they are not running correctly or have been installed wrong. CO is poisonous to the body and is lethal at high levels or extended exposure.
Initial indicators such as nausea and exhaustion are often incorrectly recognized as a result of the flu. But CO gas exposure can progress, possibly leading to confusion, organ damage or even death. Other symptoms include:
Yes. Getting rid of carbon monoxide should be a key concern because of the risk it poses to your health and well-being. CO gas can be discovered in any Voorhees home or commercial property, making effective ventilation and prevention techniques universally beneficial.
Prevention is the optimum place to start. A few safety precautions to take include:
If carbon monoxide has been detected, you should immediately vacate the building and alert the fire department and utility provider. If a leak is discovered, you should then contact a trusted HVAC company for repairs.
If an air freshener isn’t doing the trick, there may be microbes or contaminants nearby producing the unpleasant odor. Bacteria and mold are typical sources, but they can be resolved with the sanitation properties of a germicidal UV light. They are especially effective against odor-producing microorganisms.
