Indoor Air Quality

It is easy to get carried away thinking about how the temperature of the air around us feels, but what about the breathing quality of that same air? Indoor air quality (IAQ) concerns us all, especially when you consider that the air indoors is estimated to be up to five times more contaminated than the air outside.

Are You Suffering From the Symptoms of Poor IAQ?

In small doses, the contaminants that are recirculating your indoor air may not pose much of a threat to your health. But after the thousands of breaths you and your family members take each day, you may begin to see symptoms stemming from the quality of your air. The symptoms of poor IAQ very closely mimic seasonal allergies, and include: 

  • Congestion 
  • Coughing/sneezing/wheezing
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent headaches

If you notice relief from your symptoms when you leave your home in the morning, but they return at night, you may be in need of a boost in IAQ. 

What Is In Your Air?

The harmful particles that enter your breathing air come from many sources, inside and outside the home. These particles can include:

  • Viruses & bacteria
  • Radon
  • Volatile organic compounds from cleaners and aerosols
  • Smoke
  • Dirt & dust
  • Mold

Is Air Purification and Filtration Necessary?

Even if your only health issues are the occasional seasonal allergy, your air may still be affecting your health. As contaminants like pollen, dirt, bacteria, viruses, pet dander, and VOCs (volatile organic compounds) enter your hair through open windows, doors, and nearly invisible cracks or holes throughout your home, they are absorbed by your heating and cooling system. 

Unless these contaminants are removed by an air filter or an air purifier, they will continue to recirculate your breathing air. This gives each contaminant a much higher chance of entering the lungs of you or your family members and causing health issues. Common symptoms of poor IAQ include:

  • Sinus irritation (including sneezing or congestion)
  • Dry and itchy eyes
  • Insomnia
  • Coughing
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Frequent headaches

Your HVAC system should already have an air filter included—but if your filters are not regularly changed and cleaned, or if your home is particularly prone to outdoor contaminants, it may be beneficial to the overall health of your home to install additional air purification and filtration for your Pittsburgh home. 

Air Filtration

There are a couple of ways to upgrade the filtration in your home with the experts at Calfo. First, we can increase the filtration rating of the filter in your existing system to be more tailored to your needs. For example, upgrading to a HEPA filter can remove 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any airborne particles with a size of 0.3 microns (µm), according to the EPA.

We can also install separate whole-home filtration systems to give your existing air filters a helping hand. 

Air Purification

An air purifier destroys the harmful contaminants and viruses before they have a chance to recirculate your breathing air. This can also be done using a few different combinations of technologies, like UV-C exposure, ionization, activated carbon, and ozone gas, and purifiers can often be installed onto your existing heating and cooling system.
