Can you tell if your indoor air quality (IAQ) is unhealthy? Unlike humidity or uncomfortable temperatures, poor IAQ is impossible to detect without specific instruments. Even so, it can negatively impact your health and wellbeing by triggering allergy or asthma symptoms, or worse, in the long-term. COVID-19 has made many people more aware than ever of the importance of having good IAQ at home, and this movement towards cleaner, healthier air is here to stay.
Read on for everything North Shore, MA and Seacoast, NH homeowners should know about IAQ, and how iWave technology can make a huge difference for the health of your home.
Why Should I Be Concerned About my Home’s Indoor Air Quality?
We’ve all heard about the dangers of outdoor pollution, but what about indoor air pollution? According to the EPA, “most people spend about 90% of their time indoors,” where pollutants can be “2 to 5 times — and occasionally more than 100 times — higher than outdoor levels.”
Though opening windows for fresh air is an option, effective air circulation still tends to be low, and if you live in a high-traffic area like a city, an active suburban area, near construction, a school, etc., opening windows is unlikely to improve your indoor air quality by much anyway.
What is an iWave and How Can it Benefit My Home’s IAQ?
iWave is an air purifying system that can be installed in any ducted air conditioning or heating system. The iWave produces ions that diminish the impact of pet dander, dust mites, and generally reduces allergens, making the iWave one of the best air purifiers for allergies.
There are many benefits to the iWave system, including:
Quick and easy installation
Self cleaning with no maintenance needs
Cost effective with a 3 year warranty
Eliminates the need to install standing air purification eyesores that take up space in your home
