How’s the air quality in your New Jersey home? Good? Pretty good most of the time? Not great?
It’s hard to be sure—and you can’t trust your nose. Indoor pollutants like dust buildup and pet dander can lurk undetected along with toxins like mold, radon and carbon monoxide. Combined with the more obvious pollutants created by cleaning products, new furnishings and carpets, the air quality in many households can actually be making the people who live in them sick.
Indoor pollutants can cause everything from dizziness, fatigue and headaches to respiratory diseases, heart disease and even cancer. A whole-house ventilation system will protect your family by minimizing these pollutants in your home.
It’s been a nice summer in Cherry Hill and Southern New Jersey, so maybe you’ve kept your windows open. While opening windows can help air out your home, it also allows pollen and other outdoor pollutants in. And with the cold months just around the corner, you’ll be closing those windows soon! A ventilation system will let you continue to get fresh air—without the pollutants.
Why Indoor Air Quality Matters
Indoor pollutant levels, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be 2–5 times—and even up to 100 times—greater than the pollutants outdoors. With Americans spending about 90% of their time indoors, indoor air quality, or IAQ, matters.
Improving the indoor air quality of your home has several immediate benefits:
Reduce your exposure to mold and allergens like pollen, dust and pet dander.
Keep your home smelling fresh.
Minimize moisture levels for your health and to safeguard your house.
Ensure proper ventilation of your heating and cooling equipment.
Protect your family by ensuring your air is healthy to breathe.
We’ll determine if there are issues with all the common sources of indoor air pollution, including radon and mold, as well as carbon monoxide and other gases from HVAC systems and gas ranges. Since many exhaust fans don’t vent properly, they allow moist air to recirculate throughout your home and encourage mold and mildew. Allied will ensure your fans properly exhaust and check that your home is properly weatherized to prevent moisture from entering.
Last, we’ll install a whole-house ventilation system for a comprehensive ventilation strategy that ensures a healthy environment for you and your family.
