If you find yourself waking up with itchy eyes or a runny nose after a night of sleep, poor air quality may be to blame. In-home pollutants, from dust to cooking fumes, can cause an array of unpleasant symptoms and exacerbate allergies. While you can’t rid your surroundings of these irritants completely, you can improve the air quality of your home by investing in a whole-home installation. Here, the HVAC systemprofessionals of Gold Coast Home Comfort in Jericho, NY, explain the benefits.
According to the EPA, ventilation is essential to maintaining good air quality in your home. Modern whole-home cooling and heating systems feature advanced mechanics that bring outdoor air into the home in a controlled manner, thereby increasing ventilation. While they promote air movement, these systems also minimize pollutants from outside by filtering pollen and dust.
Another benefit of these systems is their cost efficiency. Depending on the type of installation you choose, they are relatively inexpensive and easy to put in place, and they reduce heating and cooling costs overall.
It’s well worth investing in a whole-home HVAC system to improve your house’s air quality. Indoor air pollution can have a serious impact on the long-term health of a building’s inhabitants. A 2012 study published in the European Respiratory Journal showed certain air pollutants can be five times more concentrated indoors than outdoors.
