What is Indoor Air Quality?

Health officials define Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a home or building, particularly as it relates to the comfort, health, and well-being of the people inside. 

By cutting down on or eliminating indoor pollutants that are airborne, you can reduce the risk of health problems significantly. The concern with a lot of indoor air pollution is that many of the health implications aren’t always obvious right after exposure. Sometimes, it can take years before serious health issues are noticeable. As such, residents need to ask themselves: What kinds of hidden toxins are floating around in the air I breathe in my home?

How Important is Indoor Air Quality?

Promoting clean and healthy breathing conditions in your home is essential for ideal health and overall wellness for that inside. 

Americans spend most of their time — an estimated 90 percent of it —indoors, whether it be at home, in an office, or a restaurant, work building, factory, or warehouse. In many of these kinds of places, experts are finding smoke, aerosol, toxic gases, chemicals, and other pollutants that cause allergies, headaches, fatigue, and breathing problems, in addition to irritation of the eyes, throat, nose, and skin. The more severe indoor pollutants can cause heart disease, cancer, respiratory problems, and other grave long-term health conditions.

Top 4 Benefits of Owning a Humidifier

As the weather slowly gets colder and we turn on the heat, the moisture in the air within our homes remains the same while the relative humidity drops. Unless we have a humidifier, this makes the air in our homes feel dry and can lead to health and comfort issues. Because the air can feel so dry, many who want to feel more comfortable get humidifiers. Aside from the obvious, there are many benefits of using a humidifier during Ohio’s winter that you may not realize.


Skin Moisture

Excessively dry air from low humidity levels means dryer skin — skin that tends to itch and flake off. When skin is dry, it can get caught on clothing and other fabrics and flake off while extremely dry skin can crack and bleed. While moisturizing does help, getting a humidifier puts moisture in the air around you, so your skin never becomes so dry from being inside.


Decrease Static Electricity

Static electricity can be an issue during the winter when the air is dry. It can make it difficult to style your hair, make clothing stick, and create painful static shocks when you touch someone or grab a door handle after walking on carpet. Static can also have negative effects on electronic devices. Because humidifiers raise indoor humidity levels, static electricity will be less of an issue.


Alleviates Health Issues

Our noses, eyes, and mouths all have mucous membranes that quickly and easily dry out without adequate levels of humidity. This is why our throats get dry, but it can also cause dry eyes, nose, or mouth. Because our bodies often overcorrect, it can create watery eyes. If you rub your eyes when they’re dry, it can actually cause more irritation and redness. It can also lead to nosebleeds. Furthermore, humidifiers might also protect against airborne illnesses.


Prevents Damage to Wood

Wood furniture can crack when it gets too dry. Some might notice their chairs and tables seem looser during the winter. Likewise, a dry home can have floorboards loosening if they’re made of wood. Utilizing a humidifier helps prevent this from happening.

Types of Humidifers

Central Humidifiers

Central humidifiers are installed directly into your home’s heating and air conditioning systems. From there, they can regulate the level of humidity throughout the entire home. These humidifiers are often the most pricey option, but the most effective. 


Evaporators push moisture through a moistened filter and its fan pushes the humidity out into the room where it’s being used.

Bypass Humidifiers

Bypass humidifiers add moisture to warm air via a furnace. They take warm air from the home’s heating ducts and pass it through a water tray. Bypass humidifiers typically need to drain their water supply, however. So if you don’t have a floor drain, you can always have a drain-less bypass humidifier installed. These reuse their water supply, meaning that they use less water.

Fan-Powered Humidifiers

The difference between a fan-powered humidifier and a bypass humidifier is that the former uses a fan to push air through the water tray for increased water evaporation. Fan-powered humidifiers are able to produce up to a gallon more of humidity per day compared to bypass humidifiers. They’re smaller and more energy-efficient, as the internal fan uses the same amount of electricity as a 25-watt light bulb.

Steam Vaporizer

Steam humidifiers work by electrically boiling water to create humidity in the form of steam. The steam is then picked up and pushed throughout the ventilation system. Steam humidifiers are the fastest and most efficient way to increase and maintain a good level of humidity in your home. They provide the purest and most natural form of indoor humidity. Steam humidifiers are able to run moisture regardless of the condition of your HVAC system.
