Clean indoor air quality (IAQ) is as important to our health as exercise, restful sleep, and wholesome nutrition. For example, proper IAQ improves cognitive function, helps reduce symptoms of asthma and allergies, and provides every cell in the body with a good supply of oxygen for energy production. Are you shopping around for an air purifier for your home? Here are some things to look for and some things to avoid when it comes to air filters and purifiers...
Last fall, a family of young professionals purchased their first home, an older home in the 12 South neighborhood that had fallen somewhat into disrepair after years on the rental market. The new owners wanted E3’s help to ensure their new home would be a healthy living space for their young family.
As we move into the winter season, you may notice that the summer humidity is gone and the lack-their-of is now causing other types of problems. Dry indoor conditions can be just as miserable as high humidity levels, but for different reasons. When indoor humidity is low, we experience not only dry, itchy skin but also static electricity, dry respiratory pathways, and we create more desirable breading conditions for bacteria and viruses. Low humidity levels can also affect wood furniture, musical instruments, and hardwood floors.
People often call us and say, “I saw your vehicles in my neighborhood the other day. What do you y’all do?” Well, the short answer is, we do a lot! E3 helps existing homeowners fix issues related to comfort, moisture, indoor air quality, and high energy bills. We also help homeowners and builders design, build, commission, and test new high performance and fully integrated homes.
