Air Quality and Your Health
Air quality is an important issue for many people simply because of the negative health effects associated with breathing dirty air. In many cases, indoor air that is contaminated can irritate your eyes, nose and throat or cause headaches and fatigue. Indoor air pollutants affect everyone differently, making it difficult to identify and eliminate the specific source.
Sources of Indoor Air Pollution
Most people correctly identify indoor air pollution with tobacco smoke or pet dander, but there are also harmful chemicals and gases that are released from common household cleaners and spray fresheners. In addition, some building materials or insulation can be dangerous and outdoor sources like radon or pesticides can leave harmful residue behind. Check-out our detailed description of all the indoor air pollutants for more information.
Solutions for Air Quality Problems
While we can’t eliminate all of the potential sources of air pollution, we can take steps to clean indoor air and make it healthier and more comfortable to breathe in our homes with solutions like air filters and air cleaners in the Lancaster and York PA areas.
Once we have determined the source of your home’s high humidity level, we will be able to make recommendations to bring this property damaging health hazard under control. Our solutions can range from stand-alone dehumidifiers; properly sized cooling equipment; sealing of supply and return air ductwork; insulation enhancements; and air circulation to specific areas of the home. Our goal to provide a healthier environment by maintaining relative humidity levels between 30% and 50%. This will help eliminate mold and mildew growth, prevent wood rot, control odors and enhance overall comfort and indoor air quality.
Most home owners suffer the effects of low indoor humidity in the winter months, these include: Dry itchy skin; dry eyes; nose bleeds; cold and sinus issues; lack of comfort; static electric shock; damaged trim and woodwork; excessive dust. We can help reduce these issues with the installation of a whole house humidifier to automatically bring your home’s humidity to the perfect level. Our home comfort experts will evaluate your home to determine the appropriate type and size of humidifier to best suit your needs.
The average person spends about 90% of their time indoors and inhales about eight thousand liters (or about 2,100 gallons) of air per day. At that rate, we breathe about seven million particles, twenty-eight million bacteria, and countless gas molecules every hour! Those particles, biologicals and gases can promote allergies, asthma, and more serious illness if not prevented, diluted or filtered.
At RSC Heating and Air Conditioning we offer air filtration units that remove up to 95% of the particulate 0.3 microns and larger. To give you some perspective as to the efficiency of our systems, the dust you can see floating in the air is larger than 10.0 microns.
