Indoor Air Quality
Poor indoor air quality can aggravate asthma, trigger allergy symptoms, increase exposure to toxins, and impact long-term health. There are many sources of indoor pollution in Silicon Valley homes, including smog, particles from cooking, pet dander, pollen and dust.
Indoor air quality is impacted by temperature, air freshness, air purity and humidity levels. Aprilaire systems can address all of these important aspects of air quality that affect Santa Clara Valley homeowners, while promoting energy efficiency.
Allergic reactions can take many forms and range from mild to severe in nature. Sneezing, itchy eyes and headaches are all signs of allergies caused by poor indoor air quality.
According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA), a staggering 50 million Americans suffer from nasal allergies, including up to 30% of adults and 40% of children. Allergies are a reaction to common substances, such as dust, pollen, mildew, pet dander and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
Improving indoor air quality in your home is an effective way to naturally relieve or eliminate allergy symptoms. Maintaining ideal humidity levels creates an inhospitable environment for dust mites and mold growth, and prevents the triggering of allergy symptoms.
Aprilaire whole-house ventilation solutions remove air filled with pet dander, pollen and dust, and supply clean fresh air to your home. These quiet and reliable systems work behind the scenes to keep your air clean.
Asthma causes swollen or inflamed airways, making it difficult to breath. Wheezing, chronic coughing and shortness of breath are all common symptoms. An estimated 25.9 million Americans have asthma, according to the AAFA.
Reducing common asthma triggers can minimize asthma symptoms. Pollen, pet dander, mold, mildew and dust mites are common culprits. Aprilaire solutions can remove up to 99% of airborne pollen and mold, while maintaining humidity levels unsuitable for dust mite and mildew growth.
