What is Indoor Air Quality?

As indicated by the name, “Indoor Air Quality” is a term that refers to the quality and cleanliness of breathing air inside buildings and homes, especially as it pertains to the health and safety of the building’s occupants. In residences, this means people living in the home as well as people visiting. National studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency indicate indoor air can be three to five times more polluted or contaminated than outdoor air. This rise in indoor air pollution and contamination is most likely due to modern day building practices in addition to materials being used in homes. These building practices are designed to save money. To increase the energy efficiency and retain heated and cooled air inside, today’s dwellings are built airtight with more insulation than ever before. 

Increasing our air quality dilemma, modern air tight homes don’t have natural ventilation to bring in fresh air. Everyday living, from pets to kids and guests in and out of the home generates airborne contaminants like dirt, dust, and allergens. Homeowners should be mindful of these contaminants and the effect it can have on their health. Many kinds of pollutants  become trapped in homes due to poor ventilation and are recirculated in the home’s air ducts. To improve air quality and mitigate contaminants, Centerville Heating & Cooling offers a wide array of products and services that work with and inside your HVAC system.

    Why is IAQ Important?

    Many studies nationwide have shown that air pollution and contamination in our homes can be a greater health hazard than outdoor air pollution. Indoor pollutant levels are often, in fact, a lot higher than levels outside your home. Essentially, there are three main reasons why indoor air quality is a more important cause for health concern in homes throughout the nation: 

    • The average American spends about 90% of their time indoors. 
    • Harmful chemicals are used inside the home in insulation and drywall, cleaning solutions, vinyl flooring, pesticides, cooking, and personal hygiene products. 
    • Modern homes are built to be energy efficient and retain the air that has been heated or cooled. 

    Health effects from hazardous indoor air quality and indoor air pollution range from minor irritation to seriously debilitating, depending on the set of contaminants and the situation. Health effects can include headaches, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, sinus issues, irritated eyes, and sore throats. The symptoms usually subside when the person leaves the contaminated  building or room.


      Benefits of Good IAQ

      Comfort and air quality inside your home go hand in hand, and Centerville Heating & Cooling goes beyond home comfort to offer healthier indoor air environments for all inhabitants. Many benefits of  better indoor air quality aren’t just good for your health but also your pocketbook by increasing the efficiency and longevity of the HVAC system.  

      Lower Utility Bills

      Many homeowners intend to lower their utility bills by turning off the air conditioner when they are cool and turning it back on when they’re hot. Nevertheless, this doesn’t work. Cycling the system manually is rough on the equipment, making the unit work harder. Upgrading to a newer AC will help improve air quality. The more efficient system enables you to keep your home cool more cost-effectively. Newer models are inexpensive to run compared to older systems and can even end up paying for themselves fairly quickly.

      Improves Sleep

      Better air quality improves our immune system and wont introduce as many contaminants to our bodies.. It also helps improve rest. Improved air quality helps reduce stress and improves sleep. Cooler temperatures enable us to sleep better. It’s natural for our bodies to relax in well-cooled spaces, a good air conditioning unit that improves and effects our air quality goes a long way and helps us with the peace of mind the air were breathing isn’t making us sick. 

      Improved Health

      People often take clean air for granted or fail to recognize the presence of contaminants in their air. However, this perception quickly changes when it becomes evident that our homes suffer from air quality issues. The higher the concentration of contaminants in our indoor air, the more susceptible we become to allergies, asthma, and other respiratory illnesses. Even minimal levels of indoor air pollution can have a significant impact on our overall well-being and stress levels, hindering our ability to achieve optimal health and energy levels. Trust Centerville Heating & Cooling to help you address your air quality concerns and ensure a healthier living environment for you and your loved ones.

      Remove Pollutants & Allergens

      When we are allergic to something, it’s our body’s natural way of saying it can’t tolerate whatever it’s being exposed to or breathing in. This indicates that the more you are exposed to airborne allergens, the more likely you are to become ill. Proper air quality enables the body to recover quicker without risking falling ill again.

      Warning Signs of Poor IAQ 

      Centerville Air Circulation Problems

      Frequent Allergies & Illness

      The largest reason homeowners should consider their indoor air quality is the affect that poor air quality can have on them and all other members of the household. The EPA says short-term symptoms of poor indoor air quality include eye, sinus, and throat irritation, as well as fatigue, dizziness and headaches. Inadequate air quality and air cleaners in a home also aggravate pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma. 

      Centerville Musty Odor

      Dust Buildup on Surfaces

      A lot of airborne pollutants are heavier than the air. Because of this, they will not stay suspended in your home’s air floating around forever. Poor indoor air quality can lead to more frequent dust buildup on the surfaces around your residence. If you are finding you have to dust more frequently than normal, you might need to consider whether or not your HVAC system’s air filters are enough for your air supply. 

      Centerville Frequent Allergies & Illness

      Musty Odor

      Musty odors are valuable signals of mold growth. If the smell is more obvious near the vent registers or while your HVAC system is running, it’s a major red flag. Mold produces a musty odor because it releases organic microbial compounds and bacteria that are volatile and decompose as it is exposed to hot and cold air.

      General IAQ FAQ

      What are symptoms of poor indoor air quality?

      Symptoms of poor indoor air quality include health issues such as fatigue, shortness of breath, sinuses, headache, dryness, shortness of breath, dizziness. Unusual odors are another sign of poor air quality in addition to having to replace air filters a lot more often than normal. Other symptoms could be related to humidity levels and include static electricity and problems sleeping. 

      How can I improve indoor air quality?

      First you’ll want to test your air quality. Then, you look at source control. Typically, the most effective way to improve indoor air quality is to remove individual sources of air pollution in the home or at least reduce their emissions. Some sources, like those containing asbestos, can be enclosed or sealed. Other sources, such as gas stoves, can be adjusted to reduce the amount of emissions. 

      Why is indoor air quality so important?

      When we breathe polluted air things that aren’t good for us get into our lungs. From there, these harmful substances can enter the bloodstream and be carried to our internal organs such as the brain. This can lead to severe health issues like asthma, cardiovascular diseases, breathing problems and even cancer. Over enough time, if air quality is poor enough, it can reduce the quality and number of years of life.
