Why Energy Efficiency Can Lead to Poor Indoor Air Quality

While it’s all well and good to want to reduce both energy use and costs with the heating and cooling products you use in your home, this has also made new homes tighter and less able to “breathe.” Between this and the combination of tight construction using new building materials, indoor air pollutants, and allergens, many homes suffer from poor indoor air quality. It is therefore important to get fresh air in and get rid of as many pollutants and dust particles as you can.

A home that is lacking in air quality can lead to the following effects:

  • Health and respiratory problems for residents.

  • Overall lack of comfort in the home.

What’s needed in order to ensure a healthier atmosphere in a house is proper humidity, ventilation and temperature control. If you’re not sure how to achieve these things let us show you how.
