    What is Indoor Air Quality?

    As suggested by the name, “Indoor Air Quality” is a term referring to the quality of air inside buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the overall health, comfort and well-being of the home or building’s occupants. In residential dwellings here in the Miami Valley, this includes the people who live in the home as well as the people who are visiting. Everyone breathes the same air. While comfort is a top priority, far too few keep IAQ a priority like they need it to be. 

    Recent studies from EPA indicate indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. This increase in indoor pollution is likely due to the fact that most modern day building practices, in addition to things being used in homes. Modern building practices are designed to save money and to be as energy efficient as possible, keeping heated and air conditioned air inside. Today’s homes are constructed airtight with more insulation than ever before. 

    To make matters worse, air tight homes lack natural ventilation to bring in the fresh air. Meanwhile, everyday living often produces various forms of pollution, such as dust, pet dander, dirt and smoke (whether from cooking or smoking). Cooking and bathing produces a wide range of air pollution, combined with indoor cleaning practices which often include chemicals.

    Why is IAQ Important?

    No one questions the need to regulate indoor temperatures to create an atmosphere that is comfortable during the Miami Valley Ohio area’s cold winters and hot and humid summers. But how many homeowners take their Indoor Air Quality seriously? 

    The answer to that is not enough people. Nevertheless, more and more homeowners and business owners are catching on. They understand that their indoor air quality is something that needs to be addressed. They realize it can be enhanced, and if you have indoor air pollution in the home, it can be removed. 

    In fact, indoor air pollution can be more of a health concern than outdoor air pollution. Indoor air pollution is often, a lot higher than levels of air pollution outside the home. Overall, there are three main reasons why indoor air quality is more of a health concern throughout the nation:

    • Harmful chemicals are used inside the home in building materials, cleaning solutions, furnishings, cooking, pesticides, smoking and personal hygiene products. 
    • Modern dwellings are constructed air tight and often lack adequate ventilation. 

      The health effects of poor indoor air quality or poor indoor air pollution range from minor to serious, depending on the type of problem and the situation. Health effects can include nausea, headaches, tiredness, dizziness, itchy nose, irritated eyes, and scratchy throat. The symptoms usually go away when the person leaves the building or room.

That means, the more someone gets exposed to airborne allergens, the more likely they are to become ill. Proper air quality enables the body to recover properly. This way you’ll be at your best when you do go outdoors.

      Dust Buildup on Surfaces

      Do you find yourself dusting your home more frequently than normal? This could mean that the air quality in your residence is worse than usual. Pollutants heavier than air tend to settle on surfaces, meaning they won’t stay suspended indoors forever – and as a result, many places with strong airflow may have noticeably increased levels of debris buildup or dust accumulation near their registers and vent outlets. To assess if this is true at yours, check either for visible dirt build-up around these areas first; if clean furnace filters are unable to help afterward then it might be necessary to consider having ductwork cleaned out!
