Some Possible Consequences of Inadequate Ventilation
Poor ventilation can cause health problems and reduce comfort levels in your Atlanta, GA home. Improving your indoor air quality can help ensure that you and your family remain safe and healthy for many years to come. Here are some of the most important reasons to invest in indoor air quality devices this year.
Exposure to Concentrated Pollutants
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission warns that lack of ventilation can allow pollutants to build up to dangerous levels inside homes and businesses. These pollutants can come from a variety of sources, including the following:
- Smoke produced during cooking or during the use of tobacco products
- Building materials, including insulation, carpet, and cabinetry
- Certain cleaning and pest control products
- Air fresheners
- HVAC systems that are not properly maintained
- Paint strippers, glues, and other chemical compounds
Improving ventilation and scheduling regular HVAC maintenance visits will typically allow you to reduce concentrations of pollutants in your indoor air to keep your family safer from these serious threats to your health.
Health Risks for You and Your Family
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has identified inadequate ventilation and resulting poor indoor air quality as risk factors for a variety of diseases and health problems. High concentrations of pollutants in poorly ventilated areas can cause immediate health effects that may include headaches, respiratory issues, irritation of the eyes or nasal tissue, and dizziness. Over time, exposure to pollutants can potentially lead to heart disease, certain forms of cancer, and respiratory disease.
Reduced Indoor Comfort
Stale indoor air can result from inadequate ventilation and can seriously affect your enjoyment of your Atlanta home. Inline ventilator systems are an outstanding way to eliminate stale, stuffy indoor air and to promote the healthiest environment for yourself and your family.
