There aren’t many needs more important than the air we breathe. Poor air quality can not only cause discomfort, but it can lead to sickness and compromised health. While outdoor pollutants, such as smog and allergens often dominate discussions about air quality, the reality is, indoor air is often much more contaminated than outdoor air. In fact, the concentration of certain pollutants and contaminants can be up to two to five times higher in homes and offices than outdoors. The following items often contribute to subpar air quality:
- Cleaning chemicals
- Pet dander
- Smoke (cigarette, cooking, etc.)
- Construction materials
- And more
Fortunately, a professionally-installed ventilation system can protect health and wellness. Whether you’re interested in circulating clean, fresh air for your family at home or your employees at the office, consider the following health advantages a ventilation system can offer.
