Indoor Air Quality
DID YOU KNOW? The average American spends 90% of their time indoors. Poor indoor air quality is ranked as one of the top five environmental risks to human health. With fuel costs on the rise, today’s homes are sealed and insulated better than ever. While this helps reduce utility bills by keeping heated or cooled air from escaping, it can create uncomfortable or even unhealthy living conditions in your home. That’s because the same air is continuously circulated throughout your home without filtration or purification. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to improve your home’s indoor air quality. With better indoor air quality, your family will be able to breathe easier. Fewer debris particles and chemicals in the air can also mean fewer headaches and allergy flare-ups.
Call Rumpca Services for any of your indoor air quality and ventilation needs. We can repair and go over any issues you may be having with the air quality in your home. We have air cleaners and air purifiers to help reduce the dust particles, debris, and odors in the air, as well as help protect your heating and cooling units so it can last longer and run more efficiently. UV lights can also help reduce viruses, bacteria, and mold in the air. Humidifiers can add moisture to the air in the winter when the air is dry and causing static electricity and bloody noses. For health reasons, it is recommended to keep the humidity levels in your home between 35% to 50%. We also offer air exchangers to bring in fresh air from outside into your home and blow out the bad air from inside your home without losing any the heat or energy.

Steps To Improve Your Home’s Air:
Filtration: An air filtration system can capture even the smallest contaminants, such as pollen, mold, and pet dander. For best results, choose a professionally-installed, whole-house system.
Humidification: For optimal comfort and health, national studies indicate your home’s relative humidity levels should range between 35 and 50 percent. A humidity gauge or hygrometer from your local hardware store can help you monitor moisture levels. One way to manage humidity levels in the winter time is to have your local HVAC and ventilation contractor install a humidifier in your home.
Ventilation: Lack of fresh air can make the air feel heavy, clammy, or stale. It can also lead to humidity imbalances and put homes at risk for damage from mold. An energy-efficient way to improve indoor air quality and air circulation would be to consider a new ventilation system or an air exchanger, which exchanges stale indoor air with fresher, cleaner outdoor air.
Green Thinking: Common houseplants like Boston ferns and spider plants have been found to absorb toxic gases emitted by products like paints and solvents.
