Air quality…It’s something around us that immediately affects us, 24/7/365. However, it isn’t something that most of us give a lot of thought to, until we start sneezing and coughing.
But here at Air Specialist, we believe that several untreated health conditions are caused by polluted air, and we’re committed to improving your indoor air quality!
Symptoms of exposure to bad air include irritated eyes and throat, tiredness, and headaches.
Those symptoms of course look almost identical to fall allergies, which is why you should take note of when and where your symptoms occur.
Do your symptoms actually get better when you go outside? Well then, it’s probably not the pollen allergy you thought it was…but instead, you’re sensitive to a biological or chemical irritant in your own home!
There are other signs and symptoms in a home with poor air quality, too. Has moisture condensed on your windows? Does the air smell bad? Does your HVAC equipment, like your vents and air filter, get dirty quickly?
And of course, this insidious indoor air problem – where the indoors can be up to 100 times more polluted than the outdoors – isn’t just limited to your own home.
The air in your office could be polluted, too, from dirty vents, water damage, and building materials like carpet, paint, and even printers or copy machines.
So now that we’ve established that these particles are everywhere, why are they so dangerous?
Well, the issue goes beyond just short-term health effects. It goes beyond just feeling icky whenever you have to spend a long time indoors. Over time, high levels of indoor air pollution can increase your risk of lung disease. It can even cause heart disease or cancer!
So, even if you don’t experience any symptoms of air pollution and don’t suspect your home of being polluted…It’s better to be safe than sorry!
Air Specialist offers a variety of solutions to help filter and humidify your air. We’ll stop bacteria, viruses, dust, pet dander, and particles from insects from spreading around your home.
According to the EPA, controlling the humidity in your home also controls the growth of these pollutants. We can prevent your home from becoming a breeding ground for gross microorganisms and contaminants, with our top name brand dehumidifiers.
Or, perhaps it isn’t your home’s humidity that’s the issue, but just the general purity of the air.
We also offer air purifier filtration systems, which have the latest in germicidal technology to kill off bacteria and viruses.
The air purifier comes on as many as 8 times an hour, removing up to 99.98% of contaminants. If you’re thinking, “I already have an air filter, don’t I?” Well, the whole house air purifier is about 100 times more effective. This was confirmed by Environmental Protection Agency and leading experts at the Harvard School of Public Health!
Do you want cleaner air? Of course you do, especially as it gets colder here in Texas, and bacteria and viruses are more likely to snuggle indoors with you!
