We live at the foot of the Bighorn Mountains, the sky is clear and blue, so why be worried about indoor air quality?
It’s not the air outside that we are concerned about, it’s the air inside. As homes are built for improved energy efficiently they are tighter and do not let much fresh air come inside. So when we close our homes up, they trap; household cleaners, microorganisms like mildew, bacteria and mold, dust, pet dander and radon in our homes. In the spring and summer pollen can be an irritant for some people. Humidity is typically too low in the winter, creating static electricity, dry noses and shrinking wood.
What You Can Control
- How clean your indoor air is
- How much fresh air is introduced into your home
