The Importance of Healthy Indoor Air Quality

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranked indoor pollution among the top five environmental dangers to the public. Their study showed that indoor air could be two to five times more polluted than the worst outside air. This could explain a rise in asthma, allergies, colds, viruses and other respiratory ailments that are easily spread in indoor spaces.

UV Germicidal Lights

UV Germicidal lights target germs and bacteria in the air of your house and reduce the risk of illness for you and your family. Newer air filtration systems effectively remove unwanted pollutants from your home but can miss bacteria and viruses in the air. UV Germicidal Lights supplement your filtration system and increase your indoor air quality.

Common FAQ’s About Indoor Air Quality


What Is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) describes how the air inside homes and businesses can affect your health, comfort, and ability to work. Temperature, humidity, poor ventilation, mold from water damage, and exposure to chemicals all affect Indoor Air Quality.

For many people, exposure to indoor air pollution poses a greater risk than outdoor air pollution. Those who spend the most time inside (like the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill) are more susceptible to the health issues caused by poor IAQ.


What Causes Indoor Air Problems?

The primary cause of IAQ problems in homes is gases or particles in the air. Inadequate ventilation, high temperature, and humidity levels can increase indoor pollutant levels. Having enough fresh outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and exhausting the indoor air pollutants out of the home is essential to good IAQ.


What Are Sources Of Indoor Air Pollutants?

  • Gases or particles into the air
  • Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels
  • Contaminated air brought into the building
  • High temperature
  • Moisture damage
  • Humidity levels
  • Poor upkeep of ventilation, heating, and air-conditioning systems
  • Occupant activities such as construction, remodeling, and smoking inside also contribute to poor indoor air quality.


What Can I Do To Prevent Indoor Air Quality Problems?

Here are some tips to prevent, or reduce, potential Indoor Air Quality problems:

  • In kitchens and bathrooms, install and use exhaust fans that are vented to the outdoors.
  • Vent clothes dryers outdoors.
  • Ventilate the attic and crawl spaces to prevent moisture build-up.
  • Thoroughly clean and dry water-damaged carpets and building materials.
  • Dust mites, pollens, animal dander, and other allergy-causing agents can be reduced through regular cleaning.
  • Don’t smoke at home or permit others to do so. Ask smokers to smoke outdoors.
  • Use proper ventilation when painting or cleaning with heavy chemicals.
  • Conduct monthly carbon monoxide and radon testing.
  • Repair any leaks in your home’s roof, foundation, or ductwork to reduce contaminants in your home and the cost of your energy bills.
  • Clean and perform regular HVAC system maintenance.
  • Schedule an appointment with a technician from Hoffmann Brothers to check for system leaks and to clean AC coils.


How Can I Tell If There Is An Indoor Air Quality Problem?

People living in homes with poor Indoor Air Quality may notice unpleasant or musty odors or may feel that the building is hot and stuffy.
Asthma and some causes of pneumonia have been linked to poor IAQ. Fever, cough, and shortness of breath can be symptoms of a serious problem. If you have symptoms that are not going away or are getting worse, talk to your doctor about them; but it’s important to note that not all exposures cause symptoms.

Call Hoffmann Brothers to help you determine the best way to improve your home’s Indoor Air Quality.
