Spending time together is part of summer fun for most families. Taking steps to protect indoor air quality (IAQ) is essential for your health and your family’s health. With children spending more time outdoors during school breaks or family activities, the potential for tracking in dirt, pollen, and other allergens is significantly increased during the summer months. Grass and ragweed pollen can have a dramatic effect on the quality of the air your family breathes during the summer months. Here are some of the benefits of improving IAQ for your Fredericksburg, Virginia, home.
Reduced Exposure to Allergens
According to the Indoor Air Quality Scientific Findings Resource Bank at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, pollen from plants can cause serious allergic responses. Allergies can cause respiratory issues and discomfort for those affected. By taking steps to reduce allergens in your home, you can prevent allergies from affecting your indoor fun this summer.
Added Protection for Vulnerable Individuals
People with respiratory illnesses like asthma and emphysema can be negatively affected by IAQ issues. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) includes mold, dust mites and pet dander as some of the most common triggers for asthma attacks inside homes and buildings. Actively improving your home’s IAQ is essential to protect those with asthma, emphysema and other respiratory issues from episodes that could affect their health and comfort this year.
Better Health for Your Whole Family
The right IAQ system can work with your air conditioning system to create comfortable and clean air for your Fredericksburg home. This can help you ensure fewer issues with respiratory problems for yourself and your family.
