The Dangers

The World Health Organization has found that 99% of the world lives in areas that have levels of pollutants higher than WHO’s guidelines. The World Health Organization also has found that around 2.6 billion people are exposed to dangerous levels of household air pollution. These figures are no doubt frightening and are legitimate reasons for concern, especially when that is combined with pollen seasons that are longer and more intense each year due to climate change. However there are still ways to keep you and your loved ones safe and comfortable inside your home with a variety of air quality solutions.
To avoid such undesirable occurrences, you can call or text 973-283-0300 to be set up with the following options.

UV Lights

Bacteria, fungi, viruses, and mold are some of the most dangerous air pollutants, and a UV light is a superb way to combat these pests. The ultraviolet light breaks down the DNA of these organisms and greatly reduces the health threats that are these single cell invaders.

Humidifiers and Dehumidifiers

For homes with dry air, using a Whole-Home Humidifier is one of the most effective ways to add the proper amount of humidity to your indoor air and prevent the problems caused by dry air. During the winter months the problem is even worse, due to the reduction of relative humidity in the outside air.
Dry air in your home causes higher energy costs by making you feel cold at normal temperatures, leading you to turn up the thermostat. It can also damage your home and its contents, including electronics, wood and instruments. Dry air is also bad for your health by increasing your chances of getting colds, upper respiratory problems, bloody noses, dry mouth and eyes, sore throats and cracked, itchy skin.
For homes with too much humidity however, a dehumidifier is recommended. Too much humidity in your home can make you feel miserable, make your home a breeding ground for insects, make your house smell musty and can make you sweat even at normal indoor temperatures. Too much humidity can also cause health problems such as allergies and asthma when it creates mold and mildew and a perfect environment for dust mites.

Whole House Air Cleaners

With a whole home purification system up to 99% of the harmful particles in your air will be removed. Common allergens such as dust, pet dander and pollen are virtually eliminated when you have a whole home air purification system. The particles are collected and trapped from every nook and cranny of your home.

An air purifier will reduce all of these odors and you won’t have to worry about breathing in the unpleasant smells and harmful vapors.
Whole home air purification systems take barely any energy to run. They are very energy efficient while keeping your air fresh and safe to breathe plus they keep your HVAC unit running more efficiently due to the removal of the harmful particles in the air.

Exhaust Fans

Exhaust fans are somewhat simple, yet effective nonetheless. They work by taking air circulating inside the home and redirecting the dirty air to be released outside of the home while the clean air gets sent back into the house for comfortable and healthy breathing.
Exhaust fans are most commonly installed over stoves and in bathrooms as those are two hot zones for contaminated air to be produced
