Balanced Humidity Levels for Healthier Indoor Air Quality
The Environmental Protection Agency advises maintaining home humidity levels between 30% and 50% for optimum health and comfort. Considering that people spend an average of 90% of their time indoors, proper humidity levels in the home are crucial for overall health.
Signs of a Humidity Problem in Your Home
SIgns of low humidity levels include dry skin, irritated nasal passages, and chapped lips. Conversely, high indoor humidity levels can be the perfect breeding ground for common home allergens like mold, mildew, and dust mites. These allergens can cause occupant symptoms like sneezing and coughing, as well as advanced symptoms like worsened asthma and other respiratory problems.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms while at home, it’s time to consider a humidity solution. Our whole-house humidifiers and dehumidifiers will ensure that you have proper humidity levels throughout your home.
Reduce Allergies & Allergy Symptoms with an Air Purifier
Did you know that 50 million Americans suffer for nasal allergies, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)? Many North Shore, Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire residents suffer from seasonal allergies or asthma. Sneezing, itchy eyes, and headaches are all signs of allergies caused by poor indoor air quality.
Maintaining good air quality within your home creates an inhospitable environment for dust mites and mold growth, and helps to prevent the triggering of allergy symptoms. Air purifiers and humidity-balancing products can help prevent allergy symptoms and asthma triggers from affecting you and your family’s health at home.
