The quality of indoor air is typically much worse than it is outside. During the summer, there are times when the air quality index is so low as to be the subject of health advisories. In fact, the Fraser Valley corridor is particularly prone to this problem. Air traveling from west to east carries the airborne pollutants from the industrial areas in the coastal mainland all the way to Chilliwack and Hope.
We tend to have our doors and windows closed, limiting the amount of fresh air into our homes. If we restrict the air into our homes, then we reduce or eliminate the dilution effect on the air indoors.
Poor indoor air quality can make living with allergies, asthma, asthma triggers or other respiratory problems a real challenge.
There are different ways to deal with indoor air quality problems. Filtration, humidity control, UV germicidal lights, hepa filtration and heat recovery ventilation can all play a part in controlling the problems that poor indoor quality can bring. We can help you understand the different strategies for controlling indoor air quality, and select the correct solution for your needs.
