Energy Efficiency and Indoor Air Quality: The Best of Both Worlds
Posted on November 14th, 2014 by BlueMountain
Homeowners are jumping on the energy efficient bandwagon like never before. However, many people have not given a second thought to how energy efficiency impacts indoor air quality. Fortunately, energy efficiency actually improves indoor air quality. It’s a win-win situation!
This is particularly good news because indoor air quality affects your overall health. Poor indoor air quality can aggravate existing health problems. Good indoor air quality, on the other hand, is advantageous for your health.
Typically, energy efficient homes have better indoor air quality. This is due to the fact that energy conservation features reduce the amount of air pollutants in the home. Efficiently designed HVAC systems minimize the amount of moisture in the air. In return, it is less likely for an energy efficient home to accumulate mildew and mold.
We understand that poor indoor air quality is a serious problem in this country. One way to correct this problem is installing energy efficient appliances in your home.
