Lake in the Hills Air Quality Services


The average person spends upwards of 90% of their time indoors. And while most people are well aware of the dangers of outdoor air pollution, far less understand the threat posed by indoor air pollution.

In fact, the Environmental Protection Agency recently named indoor air pollution as one of the biggest environmental risks to public health in this country. According to that same report, the air inside many homes can be up to 100 times more polluted than the air outside.

Common Sources of Indoor Air Pollution

  • Fumes from oil or gas combustion in your heating equipment
  • Deteriorating or poor quality insulation
  • Smoke from tobacco products
  • Mold and mildew growth
  • Chemicals applied to upholstered furniture and pressed-wood products
  • Chemicals released by new, damp or wet carpeting
  • Radon and pesticides
  • Household cleaning products

Indoor Air Pollution and Health

It is unfortunate, but true, that the home—a place most people consider safe – actually exposes them to elevated levels of hazardous pollutants. Depending on the particular make-up of your indoor air, you may be exposing yourself to a whole range of health risks both short and long-term.

Short Term Effects:

  • Irritation of the eyes, nose and throat
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Trigger asthma attacks

Long Term Effects: Prolonged exposure to contaminates in your air may pose long-term health risks for your family.

How You Can Improve Your Indoor Air Quality

You can fight back against indoor air pollution with a variety of high-tech systems:

  • Whole House Air Cleaners purify your air and eliminate any airborne pollutants before they have a chance to enter the home and be inhaled by its occupants
  • Whole House Humidifiers distribute humidity and moisture throughout the home, decreasing overall bacteria levels and soothing asthma or allergy prone respiratory systems
  • Whole House Ventilation Systems ensure that polluted indoor air can be freely replaced with fresh outdoor air, keeping you and your family breathing easy
  • Ultraviolet (UV) Lamps improve indoor air quality by destroying airborne particulate contaminants

While each of these systems will help improve the air quality of your home, the best option for you will depend on your personal preference and the unique challenges of your home.
