Poor indoor air quality (IAQ) negatively impacts our health, businesses, schools, and homes. Ventilating with a cost-effective and energy-efficient ERV is the first step to better IAQ.
Indoor air contaminants consist of an array of internally generated toxins, chemicals, vapors, gases, particles, virus contaminated aerosols, and odors that cause deficient IAQ.
The EPA found that indoor air is 2-5 times – and occasionally 100+ times – more polluted than outdoor air.
On average, people spend about 90% of their time indoors, with the elderly spending 95%.
Due to its adverse effects, deficient IAQ was named a top-five environmental health risk by the EPA.
