Studies have shown that the air inside of some homes, especially during the winter months, can actually be more seriously polluted than some industrial cities. For those that suffer from allergies or respiratory issues; fresh, clean air is vital. We spend a large majority of our free time in our homes so proper ventilation is important. One way to ensure clean air is circulating through your home is by installing an in-home air exchanger.
What are the Benefits of an In-Home Air Exchanger?
When a home doesn’t receive fresh air from the outside, the circulated indoor air becomes saturated with bacteria, chemicals, dust, mold, and other contaminants. By installing an Air Exchange Ventilator (AEV) you are able to reduce these harmful elements resulting in improved indoor air quality. In addition these systems work nicely with existing HVAC equipment such as a high velocity or central air conditioning systems and furnaces. Quality Air Exchangers from Blue Ox Heating and Air can:
- Increase the airflow between your outdoor and indoor space
- Create a clean air environment by replacing stagnant indoor air with fresh outdoor air
- Reduce the toxins and pollutants in your home
How Does an Air Exchanger Work?
Much as its name implies, air exchangers are used to exchange the air between an outdoor and indoor space. An air exchanger will replenish particulate and toxin rich indoor air with natural, fresh outdoor air. Quality exchangers have an air filter attached to ensure the air coming into your home is protected from allergens, dust or pollutants. To make things easier, the experts at Blue Ox can install a new exchanger into your existing air conditioning or heating system.
Will an Air Exchanger Contribute to Better Health?
The air circulating within your home can be surprisingly polluted. In fact, it can be so dirty that it causes or aggravates serious conditions such as asthma, lung infections, and other chronic respiratory diseases. Occupants may also suffer from fatigue, dry eyes, headaches, and nasal congestion due to air contaminants. The American Lung Association recommends ventilating your home with a device like an air exchanger year round to prevent in-home air levels from becoming dangerously polluted.
