Save Your Sinuses with These Easy IAQ Upgrades
Spring in Nashville is an exciting time with temperatures rising and people spending more and more time outdoors. If you suffer from allergies, however, it can also be a dreaded time when you experience symptoms like coughing, sneezing, itching, and watery eyes. You may find yourself staying indoors just to feel comfortable, only to experience little relief from your symptoms.
What many people with allergies don’t realize is that indoor air can be much more polluted than outdoor air. This makes it all the more important to do what you can to improve your home’s indoor air quality (IAQ). For a healthier home and better protection against allergy symptoms, be sure to consider these IAQ upgrades for your home.
Spray Foam Insulation for a Tighter Home
Better indoor air quality starts with professional air sealing and insulation. Air sealing with spray foam insulation eliminates holes and cracks that allow outdoor pollutants to enter your home, making your home more airtight and protecting you from airborne allergens.
Whole-Home Ventilation for Clean & Fresh Indoor Air
Once your home has been properly air sealed, it’s important to ventilate. Ventilation removes stale indoor air that contains humidity and odors and replaces it with fresh and filtered outdoor air. We recommend installing an energy recovery ventilator (ERV) for cleaner and fresher air throughout your home.
Dehumidification for Greater Home Health
Nashville summers can be especially humid, and that means many homes in the area have high indoor humidity averaging at around 70%. This excess moisture can quickly lead to allergy-causing mold growth. A whole-home dehumidifier keeps indoor humidity levels between 30% and 60%, giving you an overall healthier home.
Radon Mitigation for Greater Home Safety
The naturally occurring radioactive gas radon may not cause immediate allergy symptoms; but it is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Due to the dangers of prolonged exposure to radon, it’s important to make sure this harmful gas isn’t seeping into your home. A radon mitigation system will keep you and your family safe from radon exposure.
