Indoor Air Quality Products
When rainy Portland weather keeps you indoors working, playing, relaxing and entertaining, the quality of the air you breathe affects your physical health as well as that of your family or coworkers. Fortunately, we have a number of proven ways to help you ramp up your indoor air quality, feel healthier and breathe easier almost instantly.
Benefits of Indoor Air Quality Products
You don’t have to suffer in silence when your indoor air quality is poor. By learning how to control harmful pollutants in the ambient air, you can minimize your risk of respiratory ailments, according to EPA. Some pollutants can have an immediate effect while others build up in your system over time, causing serious health problems. Keeping your air clean, healthy and fresh helps prevent a variety of issues, including:
- Chronic cough
- Skin irritation
- Eye irritation
- Respiratory infection
- Cardiovascular disease
- Lung cancer
- Difficulty concentrating
By using an air cleaner that is correctly sized for your work or living space, you can eliminate such irritants as smoke, pet dander, mold spores and pollen that cause red eyes, headaches and allergy symptoms. Air cleaners also remove small airborne particles that can build up in your system, leading to more deep-seated respiratory ailments. You can choose from a room-sized air cleaner or a whole-house, HEPA-certified air cleaner if you have family members who are particularly vulnerable to contaminants.
Air that is overly dry can irritate your throat, lungs and eyes. Our humidifiers work right along with your heating and cooling systems to keep a healthy moisture level in your air. It may surprise you to learn that a little humidity in your indoor environment also helps you stay warmer in winter at a lower thermostat setting.
Keeping your living space closed up tight can fight energy loss during cold Portland winters, but this also traps air, odors, bacteria and allergens in the air you are breathing. The ventilation equipment we provide uses a uniquely designed energy exchange system to keep your indoor atmosphere circulating and fresh without drastic changes in temperature. Our ventilators draw stale indoor air and fresh outdoor air into a heat exchanger where temperature equalization takes place. Then, they send the stale air outside and flood your living space with warmed, fresh air. This cost-effective equipment preserves as much as 84 percent of your heating, so your fuel costs remain stable.
