Effective Solutions For Cleaner, Healthier Indoor Air
EPA studies show that indoor air pollution is two to five times higher than outdoor levels. Without adequate ventilation, pollutants such as chemicals, smoke, and pollen can become trapped indoors, which can make contaminant levels even worse.
Did You Know? A typical central heating and cooling system recirculates over 1 million cubic feet of air each day. This air includes unfiltered dust particles, germs, gases and contaminates that we breathe over and over again. When we breathe this kind of air it can cause allergic reactions, and triggers more serious health problems like asthma, and respiratory ailments.
Wildfire Smoke In the Home
Of particular concern for Colorado homeowners is wildfire smoke. Even light smoke from wildfires can have a major impact on indoor air quality, creating unsafe conditions for persons with health conditions as well as healthy individuals. Smoke from wildfires contains a variety of pollutants, including fine particulate matter, carbon monoxide, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), all of which can all have serious health effects.

Maintaining Healthy Humidity Levels
An often overlooked part of indoor air quality is the effect of Relative Humidity (RH). Colorado's mountain air can be as dry as a desert during the winter season. This excessively dry air can cause dust and other allergens to become more easily airborne, which can worsen allergy and asthma symptoms. Maintaining a minimum relative humidity between 30-50% helps improve indoor air quality and reduces the amount of airbourne particles.
