If you are concerned about your health, indoor air quality is a major issue. Recently, we have installed additional insulation, double-paned windows and other energy-saving features. And of course, they are a great way to save energy in our home. But all of these energy-saving measures have almost completely closed our homes. As a result, air pollutants can accumulate over time and irritate the lungs. Some pollutants, such as formaldehyde, can harm anyone. Others are more specific. For example, if you are allergic to mold or pollen, it is a bad idea to circulate the same particles around your house.
