Sick Homes = Sick Occupants
THE AIR YOU BREATHE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US
What occupants of better-insulated homes all have in common are various health-related problems which vary from severe allergies to sinus problems and chronic headaches. Serious breathing problems like asthma will develop among occupants of such homes.
The four major chemicals affecting indoor air quality are FORMALDEHYDE, TOLUENE, PHENOL, and ETHANOL, all common components of building materials, paints, sealant, furniture, etc... The most frequent symptoms of environmental sensitivity are chronic asthma, headaches, skin problems, and numerous allergic reactions. So far, family doctors have been led to treat symptoms of sick building syndrome. Medication can't solve all problems, especially when it's the home's environment that is sick. Doctors have good intentions but often cannot make the connections with indoor air quality problems as air pollutants are simply not visible.
THE CHANGES ARE EASY
For decades now, we have been treating water problems through the use of water treatment techniques and equipment. The solution is easy. If the home has an indoor air quality problem one needs to treat the source of the problem. Until we do just that, these familiar heath-related problems aren't going to go away on their own. As we service hundreds of homes annually, we find that puffers are becoming a standard to many households occupants. IT'S SCARY!
The real connection between indoor air quality and "sick-bugling syndrome" is the lack of natural ventilation going through homes. By replacing windows and doors with high efficiency options, ventilation is reduced and occupants become more sensitive to allergic reactions and respiratory problems.
As the energy crisis of our times is forcing homeowners to conserve valuable energy by tightening up their homes, the only way around restoring GOOD-HEALTH INDOOR AIR QUALITY is to install an MPIII Heat Recovery Ventilation system.
Humidifiers are not the answer to dry throats, nose bleeds and sinus problems. More humidity indoors will attract viruses, dust mites, and told (mildew) around the home, resulting in more health-related problems.
