Air quality is about more than just being comfortable. Some of us spend up to 90% of our time indoors. Now that we are insulating our homes better these days, it can mean that our indoor air pollution is worse than the air pollution outside.
Sources of indoor air pollution can include:
The goal of air filtration and purification is to remove harmful gasses and particles from the air. Physical filters, including HEPA filters, are designed to trap microbes and dust mites that are so small we donot even know they are there. The furnace filters you can buy in the hardware store will only trap particles of a certain size , generally 10% of the particles, viruses and spores that are floating around your home. Air filtration systems are all assigned a MERV (minimum efficiency reporting value) rating. The higher the MERV number, the more types of particles it can trap because it can trap smaller particles. MERV values range from 1 , 20. You can see a chart of what the different MERV values typically do here.
Maintaining the proper level of humidity in our homes can be challenging. In winter, our heating systems tend to dry the air too much, and in summer there can be too much humidity trapped indoors.
Lack of humidity in winter can cause wood flooring and furniture to warp, and to increased colds and sore throats. It also causes some people to turn the heat up higher, because dry air can feel colder. Too much humidity increases the risk of a mold or mildew problem developing. In some homes, inadequate ventilation or moisture proofing is the issue, but sometimes it is a matter of proper control of the humidity level in the air.
