Indoor Air Quality

Breathe Easy: Indoor Air Quality and Your Health

We spend most of our lives indoors, but the air inside our homes and workplaces can be surprisingly polluted. Dust, pollen, mold spores, pet dander, and even volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from furniture and cleaning products can all contribute to poor indoor air quality (IAQ).

Why does Indoor Air Quality matter?

Poor air quality can lead to a variety of health problems, including allergies, asthma, respiratory infections, and even headaches and fatigue. It can also irritate your eyes, nose, and throat, making it harder to sleep and concentrate.Better Indoor Air Quality with Westerhouse and products that help you breathe better at home and in the office.

Here’s where air cleaners and humidifiers come in:

Air cleaners: These devices act as filters, trapping and removing harmful pollutants from the air. Westerhouse installs the PREIMIEROne Media Filter and Germicidal Air Purifier for customers. 

Humidifiers: Dry air can irritate your respiratory system and make allergy symptoms worse. Humidifiers add moisture to the air, making it more comfortable and potentially reducing allergy symptoms. We chose the Aprilaire brand of home humidification to keep customers hydrated. 

Investing in an air cleaner and humidifier can improve the air quality in your home or office, creating a healthier and more comfortable environment for everyone.

Additional tips for improving IAQ:

  • Open windows regularly to let fresh air in.
  • Reduce dust and allergens by vacuuming and cleaning regularly.
  • Avoid using harsh chemicals and air fresheners.
  • Plant indoor air-purifying plants.

Remember, you deserve to breathe easy! Take control of your indoor air quality and enjoy the benefits of a healthier home or workplace.
