Whitepaper: Clearing the Air about Ventilation

Posted on: October 30th, 2012 | No Comments

As Winter rolls in, homeowners change a lot of their habits. Unfortunately, a lot of our wintertime habits affect our home’s air quality – and not in a good way.

 

To save on energy costs, you probably keep your doors and windows closed in the winter. Instead of our summertime screen doors and windows, air is trapped in our houses, recycled over and over.

 

For ambiance or for heating, you may use a wood-burning fireplace. As you can imagine, the smoke and pollutants in the wood are now released into your home – wrecking havoc on your air quality.

 

Even something as innocent as a humidifier can be adding to the problem. Adding too much moisture to your home’s air can make linens, draperies, or even your clothes attractive to mold.

 

Without the proper ventilation, these seemingly innocent wintertime habits can cause your home harm. The fact is that the average American now spends 90% of their time breathing indoor air, which is 2 to 5 more times polluted than outdoor air.

 

So how do you keep your home’s air quality in check? We’ve recently published a white paper on that exact topic. While there are a lot of online myths about home air quality, we’re setting the record straight.

 

Learn what it takes to make your home a safe and healthy environment for you and your family.
