Do You Know What The Air Quality Of Your Home Is?

Here are some common problem areas that should be tested.

According to the EPA, levels for many pollutants may be 2 to 5 times higher indoors than outdoors.

We close up our houses in the winter to keep cold air out and warm air in. This simple action of closing up the house for winter potentially traps pollutants and allergens in your home, creating an unhealthy indoor environment with poor air quality. Ironically, the more efficient your windows and doors are, the more it affects indoor air quality. This is particular true for newer homes constructed with tightly sealed windows and doors to reduce heating and cooling costs.

Indoor air pollutants cause a range of health consequences, some more serious than others but all unwelcome. From a stuffy nose or scratchy throat to fatigue, headaches, and nausea, poor indoor air quality is to blame. Though these symptoms are often mistaken for cold or flu symptoms, it could be the quality of your home’s air. Indoor air pollutants also trigger symptoms in those who suffer from allergies or asthma, and they may cause complications for pregnant women, the elderly, and those with breathing issues.

DID YOU KNOW…

  • 7% of homes in North American have at least one of six common indoor air quality problems (dust, mold, pollen etc.)
  • Particle allergens such as dust, dander, pollen, and spores are the most common, occurring in 91% of all homes.
  • Asthma is the leading cause of school absence for children aged 5 to 17 years; Particle allergens are a trigger for asthmatic symptoms.

Air filtration systems for your Calgary home

Indoor Air filtration in Calgary — better for the environment, better for your family

Air ventilators and filtration systems from Distinct Heating & Cooling can help reduce concentrations of micro-organisms such as mildew, mold, bacteria, and viruses from your HVAC system in addition to cleaning the air and helping to control dust and odor levels in your home.

A Heat Recovery Ventilator works with your Calgary heating and cooling system to exchange stale indoor air for fresh outside air at regular intervals. Whereas an air filtration system cleans air of particulates, and keeps dust and dirt out of vital equipment. This ensures your heating and cooling system performs at peak efficiency, which can help reduce maintenance and energy costs.

Does your home need air ventilation or filtration? Consider this:

  • A single person inhales more than 3,500 gallons of air on a daily basis.
  • 94% of all respiratory problems are attributable to polluted air, whether from dust, smog, cigarette smoke etc.
  • There are more than 3 million diagnoses cases of asthma in Canada; about 1 in 10 are children under 18.
  • Approximately 10-15% of the population is allergic to cat or dog danger, another common household allergen.
  • Dust mites are a common household allergen. More than 40,000 dust mites live in a single ounce of dust.
  • Did you know household dust is partly composed of dead skin cells? A single person sheds up to 700,000 skin flakes daily.
