Indoor Air Quality Services by Byrd for Savannah, GA, Residents
Many people are surprised to learn that indoor air quality (IAQ) in Savannah homes and businesses can be considerably more polluted than the air outside. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Association (OSHA), polluted air inside a home or business can have health consequences that include allergies, headaches, irritability, fatigue, and problems with concentration. Air pollution indoors can also cause health problems like respiratory distress, asthma, dizziness, nausea, and skin irritations.
Causes Behind Bad Indoor Air Quality
Air quality can be compromised by too much or too little humidity, a lack of ventilation, and airborne contaminants like pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, mold, viruses, dust, and pesticides. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), “given the fact that many people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors, the health risk due to indoor air pollutants is a significant public health concern.” At Byrd Heating and Air Conditioning, we are concerned about our customers’ comfort and that includes healthy IAQ. So, how can you get cleaner air in your home or business?
