Improving Indoor Air Quality With Carrier

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), indoor air quality can be worse than outdoor air quality. The products you use and have in your home contain chemicals and contaminants that can affect the overall health of your family. However, there are home appliances that you can use that can greatly reduce indoor air pollution.

Air purification systems clean the air in your home. These products provide air cleaning, filtering, and disinfecting, so you breathe in healthier air. Air purifiers pull in air, clean it through a variety of methods, and then release the air back into the room. 

Dehumidifiers and humidifiers are two more home appliances that improve the air in your home. Dehumidifiers are particularly important for hot and humid regions. These appliances remove moisture from the air, making a home cooler and more comfortable. Dehumidifiers also help to reduce the growth of mold which thrives in damp and hot areas. Mold often grows in attics, basements, and bathrooms, anywhere where there is little to no air circulation and also hot and humid temperatures.

Humidifiers add moisture to the air. This helps in hot and dry climates or during the winter months. Home heating systems dry out the air causing dry, itchy skin, eyes, sinuses, mouths and throats. To alleviate this unpleasant feeling, many homeowners use humidifiers. With humidifiers you have a choice of a cool mist or a warm mist. The former is better for the summer months and the latter is better for the winter months.

Zone dampers and control systems offer a convenient way to regulate and maintain the air flow and temperature in specific zones in your home. These zones can be the dining room and kitchen, living room, upstairs bedrooms or any other created zone. The controls offer energy savings by keeping the inhabitants of a home physically comfortable in whatever zone they are in. By not heating or cooling an entire home, you can save energy and lower your energy bill.

Efficient and innovative Carrier Energy Recovery Ventilators offer the newest technology for homeowners to improve the air quality and comfort levels in their homes. The ventilator is a part of the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) system in your home. The device vents the stagnant indoor air while also letting in fresh air from the outdoors.

Carrier provides many types of appliances to improve the indoor air quality and climate of your home.
