Indoor air quality (IAQ) refers to the quality of the air inside a building. IAQ matters because it impacts human health in many ways. Poor IAQ affects everyone, but persons with allergies, respiratory problems, or compromised immune systems are more susceptible.

The Consequences of Poor IAQ
Poor IAQ can have both short-term and long-term consequences. In the short term, a person exposed to a pollutant such as pollen may suffer headaches, itchy eyes or fatigue. These immediate symptoms would likely go away after removing the particles.
The long-term effects of poor IAQ can have serious consequences in some cases. Heart and lung disease and cancer result from prolonged exposure to contaminants like smoke and certain fungi. Contact Cool Connections, Inc. today to learn about air cleaning solutions that can get rid of up to 99.98% of harmful airborne particles.

- Mechanical ventilation is the HVAC fix for stale indoor air; a mechanical ventilator draws stagnant air out of the home while ushering in the fresh air. These devices are easy to use and maintain.
- Whole-home air purifiers connect to your HVAC system. Alternatively, you could invest in a portable air purifier. Some of these devices focus on eradicating harmful particles from the air; others are geared toward the elimination of odors or specific gases.
- Dehumidifiers are popular in our area where the high moisture content of the indoor air causes ongoing problems with spores and other fungi. A whole home system can help to improve your air quality and also curb the risk of structural damage to your walls, wood floors, window sills and decorative trim.
