Breathe Cleaner Air Today!
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is defined as the quality of air within a residential dwelling or other building, and how this relates to the health, general well-being, and comfort of the people who are breathing the air.
When most people think of air contamination or pollution, they think of it as being an outdoor problem, centered primarily in big industrialized cities where smog and congestion can be seen as a haze or fog floating around in the air. Often people visualize images of smokestacks and chimneys in the distance, or exhaust pipes dissipating fumes amid a maze of traffic. In all of this, most people rarely imagine that the air inside their homes is actually more polluted than outdoor air.
However, it’s a fact that our everyday activities alter our indoor air quality. Cooking, showering, smoking, owning a pet; all can have an effect on the air we breathe if we don’t make efforts to improve our air quality.
Dehumidifiers in Lebanon, OH
4 Types of Dehumidifiers
Portable dehumidifiers are the most common type. These dehumidifiers are generally capable of dehumidifying medium-sized rooms very reliably. You can also purchase larger portable dehumidifiers that will be capable of working well in larger spaces, but these are not meant to dehumidify an entire home. They work great in the room that you place them in, and they will make things much more comfortable for you.
Chemical Absorbent Dehumidifiers
Also known as desiccant dehumidifiers, they consist of hydrophilic materials, such as silica gel. Many residential units contain single-use desiccant-type cartridges, gel, and powder.
Heat Pump Dehumidifiers
These dehumidifiers need a fan, heat pump, and heat exchange coils to remove moisture from the air. Using a fan, air gets sent past the heat exchange coils, which are extremely cold. Moisture then condenses and collects. Prices range from around $150 to over $1,500.
Similar to how it sounds, this humidifier works by using an exhaust fan to expel air outside. It uses a sensor and exhaust fan and is most often used in basements, attics, and crawlspaces.

6 Tips to Improve Indoor Air Quality
With a little preventative maintenance and some basic understanding, you can take immediate steps to improve your indoor air quality today.
Clean Rugs & Carpets Often
Designate a "No-Smoking Zone"
Check your air ducts.
Air ducts are responsible for distributing hot and cold air throughout your home, providing a comfortable climate in every room. But ducts that are not installed properly or maintained can distribute contaminants from one room to another. Over time, dust, dander, and even mold can accumulate in your ducts, reducing the overall air quality. Hire a professional to make sure your ducts are circulating fresh, clean air.
Create a Safe Space
Anything that is flammable or combustible should be kept at least 3 feet away from all heating equipment and heat sources, including furnaces, fireplaces, and portable space heaters. This space should also be a “kid-free zone.”
Use a Programmable Thermostat
Using a programmable thermostat to turn the temperature lower while you sleep or work can decrease your energy consumption up to 25% without having to remember. Learn more about programmable thermostats today.
