The quality of air inside today’s homes is often worse than the air lingering outside. Viruses, bacteria, allergens, dust mites, gasses and other contaminants circulate inside, creating breathing hazards and bad odors. Homes with the best insulation, unfortunately, tend to trap odors, pollen and other contaminants within their airtight walls due to a lack of airflow most commonly found in older homes.
Indoor air pollution is among the five top environmental health risks, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.
Installing a whole-home cooling and heating room system is a good way to ensure better, fresher air.
