Indoor Air Quality
Complete home comfort is about more than just temperature—it’s also about maintaining a healthy home with indoor air quality.
Dusty, dirty homes at any temperature can mean discomfort. The air in today’s tightly-sealed, well-insulated homes can become stale as the same indoor air is circulated and re-circulated. In fact, indoor air quality is among the Environmental Protection Agency’s top 3 health concerns. The agency reports that with dust, pollen, pet dander, mold, skin flakes, chemical fumes, cigarette smoke, Radon gas and more, the air inside your home can be 2-5 times dirtier than the air outside.
Although we usually can’t see them, air pollutants are all around us, already inside our homes, and waiting to come in from outside. From our yards to our kitchens, dangerous air pollutants threaten our home health and air quality. Plus, each season brings its own dangers, from mold in the fall and winter to pollens and high humidity in the spring and summer.
Fortunately, Carrier’s wide range of air quality solutions, including humidifiers, ventilators, UV lamps, media filters and air cleaners, can together eliminate many of the pollutants threatening your home’s health and improve indoor air quality.
