Understanding Indoor Air Quality

1. Sources of Indoor Air Pollutants

Indoor air pollutants can originate from various sources within the home, such as cooking appliances, cleaning products, furniture, and even the outdoors. These contaminants can negatively impact your home’s air quality, leading to unpleasant odours, allergens, and respiratory irritants that affect your family’s health.

2. Health Concerns

Poor indoor air quality can trigger or exacerbate allergies, asthma, and other respiratory issues. It can also cause headaches, fatigue, dizziness, and eye, nose, or throat irritation. By addressing indoor air pollution through proper filtration systems, you can significantly reduce these health concerns and promote a cleaner, healthier living environment.

Types of Air Filtration Systems

1. Mechanical Filters

Mechanical filters, such as HEPA filters, capture and trap airborne particles using a fibrous material. These filters effectively remove common household pollutants like dust, pollen, pet dander, and mould spores. Remember to change the filters regularly for optimal performance.

2. Electronic Air Cleaners

Electronic air cleaners use electrostatic attraction to trap charged particles, such as dust and allergens. Some electronic air cleaners, like electrostatic precipitators and ion generators, may produce trace amounts of ozone, which can irritate some individuals.

3. UV Germicidal Lamps

Ultraviolet (UV) germicidal lamps emit a specific wavelength of UV light that targets and destroys microorganisms, such as bacteria, viruses, and mould. They are often installed as part of a larger air filtration system, complementing other filtration methods to achieve comprehensive air purification.

4. Activated Carbon Filters

Activated carbon filters utilize porous carbon to adsorb volatile organic compounds (VOCs), odours, and gaseous pollutants, which mechanical or electronic filters do not typically capture. They are an excellent option for households addressing chemical sensitivities or persistent odours.
