Why Air Quality Is Important

Did you know that a study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that indoor air can be more polluted than the air outdoors? (read the report). Considering that most Americans spend up to 90 percent of each day indoors, you may be experiencing indoor air pollution without even knowing it. Poor indoor air quality can have significant and harmful health effects.

Common Indoor Air Pollutants:

There are many sources of indoor air pollution in a home including, but not limited to:

  • Combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, or wood,
  • Tobacco product
  • Building materials and furnishings,
  • Asbestos-containing insulation
  • Wet or damp carpets
  • Cabinetry/furniture made of certain pressed wood product
  • Products for household cleaning and personal care
  • Outdoor sources such as radon and pesticides

Effects of Poor Air Quality:

  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Coughing
  • Allergic reactions
  • Irritation of the eyes, nose or throat
  • Respiratory & heart diseases (long-term)

How You Can Improve Your Home's Air Quality

Today, homes and buildings are sealed more tightly to conserve energy. Unfortunately, this seals in mold, pollen, bacteria and other pollutants. Harry Clark specializes at high performing indoor air quality products to purify the air you breathe!

Ventilation systems replace a portion of stale indoor air with fresh outdoor air, reducing energy loss in the process. Air exchangers for instance, let users manually or automatically adjust the fresh air flow. The units retain energy used to heat or cool, saving money on utility bills.
Ultraviolet air treatment systems or UV Lamps are designed to prevent mold spore growth on air conditioning coils. This technology, used for decades in water treatment, helps reduce allergic reactions to mold while enhancing overall air quality.
Air cleaners offer an effective way to remove up to 99.98% of the particles - dust, pollens, pet dander, plant spores, fungi, bacteria, tobacco smoke, etc. - from the air that passes through the home. York offers both electronic and media air cleaners.

Whole home humidifiers replenish the much-needed moisture in the air inside. This is important because warm, dry air absorbs moisture from everything around it, and breathing this air can be difficult.
