Indoor Air Quality Products & Services
Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the condition of the indoor air in a building. Air quality is an important feature to consider as it can affect the health and comfort of all occupants. Common indoor pollutants can impact IAQ, and controlling these contaminants will reduce your exposure to them and prevent negative health effects in the future.
With IAQ products from Dalton Heating & Air, you will notice a difference in the air you breathe. Protect your family’s health and enhance your quality of life by taking a stance against harmful airborne particles.
Common Indoor Air Pollutants
Pollutants or irritants in your indoor space are more common than you think. While they might seem harmless, exposure to these pollutants, especially in high concentrations over time, can cause damage to your health. Bear in mind, too, that many of these particles are colorless and odorless.
Common irritants and pollutants include:
- Dust, dirt and pet dander
- Environmental tobacco smoke (secondhand smoke)
- Lead particles
- Radon, a common odorless and colorless gas that can be harmful in high levels
- Nitrogen dioxide, a toxic gas
- Asbestos, a hazardous air pollutant
- Bacteria, fungi and viruses
How Indoor Air Quality Affects Your Health
While IAQ has a significant impact on your health, not all of its effects will show up immediately. Indoor air pollutants can result in reactions that emerge right after exposure, and they can also result in health concerns that come up years after exposure.
Immediate effects of indoor pollutants include:
- Allergic reactions, such as irritated eyes, nose and throat
- Asthma symptoms
These symptoms are typically short-term and treatable, but their effects on an individual depend on his or her age and sensitivity. However, with continued exposure, they can worsen over time. Long-term effects of indoor pollutants include:
- Respiratory diseases or disorders
- Heart disease
These serious effects can be fatal. Since every individual reacts differently to air pollutants, it is vital to reduce exposure and improve IAQ even in minor cases.
