When we are in our homes we take for granted that the environment we’ve created for our families is clean and healthy. We take time to prepare wholesome meals, make thoughtful decisions about the cleaning products that we use, and are diligent about teaching and practicing proper hygiene and hand washing habits.

However, did you ever stop to think about what hidden dangers could be lurking in the air you are breathing inside of your home? The air inside of your home can actually be quite harmful to the health of you and your family. In fact, studies conducted by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have proven that the air quality inside of your home can be nearly 100 times more polluted than the air inside, this is true even in large cities where the smog and air pollution are heavy.

What is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is the term used to describe the overall conditions of the air inside of your home. According to the American Lung Association, if your indoor air quality is poor, you and members of your family might experience symptoms like headaches, nasal congestion, fatigue, dry eyes, and nausea. It can even lead to respiratory infections and disease, such as asthma.

Poust Heating and Air Conditioning we carry Aprilaire Whole-Home indoor air quality products, which will work in conjunction with your current HVAC system to regulate and maintain all of the conditions that will impact your indoor air quality.

Having a whole-home system installed as opposed to a portable indoor unit will provide you with more efficient and thorough indoor air quality support. A portable unit is much smaller and will only improve the air that in the immediate vicinity of the unit. However, if you walk away from that area, you will be breathing air that is contaminated. Whole-Home systems from Aprilaire provide improved air quality for your entire house, ensuring that you and your family are breathing clean air no matter what part of the house you’re in.
