Madison Air Quality Experts: Better Breathing in Southern Wisconsin
A shocking but true fact is that the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) now ranks indoor air pollution as one of the top environmental issues facing our country. In studies of homes across America, researchers are finding indoor air can be as much as 100 times more polluted than the air outside. The root cause: pollutants that are so commonplace we don’t even think about them. Fortunately, Southport Home Services is here to help you fight those pollutants. We offer indoor air quality services in Wisconsin designed to help everyone in your home breathe easier and feel better.
The Benefits of Residential Indoor Air Quality Systems
Indoor air pollutants can cause everything from irritated noses and scratchy throats to dizziness and fatigue to potential respiratory disease. If there is anyone in your home with allergy issues or breathing problems, it is an extremely good idea to call for indoor air quality service. However, even if everyone in your home seems completely healthy, it’s still a good idea to make efforts to improve indoor air quality, as there are harmful contaminants and allergens in the average home most of us don’t even think about. That’s why Southport Home Services offers a range of indoor air quality systems to fit every homeowner’s needs.
What can an indoor air quality system do for my property?
- Eliminate: Everything from dust and debris to mold and mildew, to pet dander and pollen can affect your indoor air quality. And this is to say nothing of deadly pollutants like carbon monoxide, radon, nitrogen dioxide, and lead that are still found in many homes. Even the average chemical cleaner can have negative effects on your air when used excessively. Calling for professional duct cleaning can help prevent your heating or cooling system from spreading these contaminants, but to eliminate them as much as possible, you may want to consider purchasing an air purification system.
- Ventilate: Poor ventilation in your home can increase indoor air pollution. Mechanical ventilation systems such as Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRV) or Energy Recovery Ventilators (ERV) may help balance your air, bringing in a fresh supply from outdoors while removing stale air from inside your house. These systems can also capture energy and use it to heat or cool the incoming air for increased energy-efficiency and comfort.
- Filtrate: By installing air cleaners and filters as part of your central air system, you can help reduce the number of contaminants in your air supply. Not only have these products been found to remove as much as 97.5% of household dust and 99.9% of allergy-causing spores and pollen, but they can also help filter out airborne pathogens, including bacteria and viruses. Reducing microscopic, biological threats is extremely important for the health of everyone in your property, which is why Southport Home Services offers cutting-edge technology that can actually capture and kill a high number of pathogens.
