Help Achieve a Healthy Home with an APCO Whole-House Air Purifier Published on May 01, 2016 Many recent improvements have been made to better the efficiency of our homes, which in theory is wonderful, but there can also be a problem. Buildings now can be so well-insulated and air-tight that contaminants, including humidity, bacteria, germs, and mold, could become caught inside, unable to get free. Not only are they stuck in the air we breathe, but our heating and cooling systems are continuously recirculating the same air in our home so those contaminants gets moved around throughout the whole home. This matter is causing the air inside to be more polluted than our outdoor air. The Environmental Protection Agency has stated that indoor air quality is one of the top five environmental health risks today. Numerous homeowners have tried implementing single-room air cleaners, such as electronic air cleaners, but they can produce ozone, which has shown to be unhealthy, and certain air cleaners are only impactful in compact spaces so they don’t provide a complete solution for your home. So you are breathing in poor quality air, possibly worsening symptoms of asthma and other respiratory disorders, and in addition to bacteria floating around in your air, there may be chemicals from cleaning products, odors from cooking and laundry, as well as fumes from building materials such as paint or odor killers, all trapped inside your home.
