Indoor air quality is a term which refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Indoor air quality has become an important occupational health and safety issue. In the past few decades, energy conservation measures have led to airtight building construction that can create problems with indoor air quality. Frequently the ventilation systems are set to minimize the amount of fresh air entering and circulating within the building. This restriction impacts indoor air by allowing a build-up of air contaminants within the building that is not properly removed.
Air quality and the health of your family is at the core of today’s concerns. Indoor air pollution constitutes the highest risk factor for our health. It is said that the air inside a home may be more polluted than outdoor air.
Indoor air quality can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates, microbial contaminants (mould, bacteria) or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions. Source control, filtration and the use of ventilation to dilute contaminants are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality in most buildings.
Our air exchangers, air purifiers, humidifiers and dehumidifiers are highly effective solutions to eliminate air contaminants and to ensure a clean and healthy environment.
