Your home is your sanctuary. It is the place you should feel the safest. However, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average American home is highly polluted. According to the EPA, air in homes is between 2 and 5 times more polluted than air in the outdoors.
Don’t panic. EZ Breathe offers an easy and convenient way to ensure that the air quality in your home improves. This whole home ventilation system plays an important role in improving the air quality in your home.
Many homes today are built for energy efficiency. They are therefore airtight. This means that the interior of the home is completely closed off from the exterior. The problem with this is that the air inside the home is stale and loaded with pollutants such as carbon monoxide, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon dioxide and much more.
EZ Breathe allows for the circulation of air in and out of the home. The system ensures that polluted and stale indoor air is removed from the home and replaced with fresh air from the outdoors.
Toxic paints and finishes
Many of the paints and finishes that are used in homes today are loaded with VOCs. Carpets and other household furnishings are also known to emit toxic VOCs. It is important to seek products that do not emit or have reduced levels of VOCs to improve the quality of air in your home.
A full home ventilation system will also help to reduce the volume of VOCs you are exposed to by venting polluted air out of the home and replacing it with fresh air.
Cleaning products can be toxic
Many cleaning products such as detergents, deodorizers, polishes, waxes and cleaning agents contain VOCs and other toxic substances. These fumes can be harmful when present in large concentrations.
You can reduce your exposure to these harmful substances by using alternative products for cleaning. Natural products such as vinegar are just as effective and are completely harmless. You can also rely on a full home ventilation system to remove polluted air and minimize exposure to harmful fumes from cleaning products.
Mold and mildew
Mold and mildew are health hazards. Exposure to their spores can result in the development of various health problems as well as the worsening of others.
You can prevent mold and mildew growth by keeping your home dry and controlling humidity levels. This will help to keep humidity levels down by removing humid air from the interior of the home and replacing it with fresh air with lower humidity levels.
