Indoor Air Quality
Don’t Trap in Bacteria, Airborne Pathogens, or Viruses Push Them Out
Poor air quality has become an epidemic across the country. Every home is plagued with airborne illness, VOC gases, stale air, and harmful pathogens. These airborne annoyances can stay clogged inside of a home for months, polluting, and spreading illness throughout your family. Too many people have accepted this as normal when there is a solution to this problem.
QuietCool Whole House Fans are just that solution. These incredibly efficient and whisper-quiet fans can help alleviate these issues at the simple press of a button. When turned on, they pull large amounts of air from opened windows, throughout the home, up into the attic, and finally out the attic vents. This process of thermal mass cooling allows your home to completely replace the air in 3-4 minutes.
In fact, using just your A/C and keeping your windows shut could drastically increase the chances of spreading illness throughout your family and home. QuietCool Whole House Fans were designed specifically to pull clean, cool air from outside into your home so you no longer have to simply recondition the same pre-existing air over and over again.
The problem with many homes is that they are already polluted and you likely are not even aware of this problem. It is so common that homes consistently remain polluted while little is done about it. QuietCool Whole House Fans push that polluted air out and give you a much healthier home.
This is crucial because people are spending more time inside now than they ever were before. The EPA has found that, on average, Americans spend approximately 90 percent of their time inside. People who are the most susceptible to adverse effects of pollution such as older adults and those with pre-existing conditions spend even more time inside.
This increased time spent in the home requires better air quality that other cooling systems simply do not offer. This cleaner air does not require chemicals or costly energy bills either. The air exists right outside of your door as the EPA reports that indoor pollutants can be anywhere from two to five times higher than typical outdoor air even in major metropolitan areas such as Los Angeles or Bakersfield.
The CDC has specifically recommended four things you can do at home to combat viruses from spreading and getting worse:
- 1. Clean hands at the door and at regular intervals
- 2. Create habits and reminders to avoid touching your face and cover coughs and sneezes
- 3. Disinfect surfaces like doorknobs, tables, and handrails regularly
- 4. Increase ventilation by opening windows
They aren’t the only organization that encourages ventilation to improve indoor air quality and reduce the likelihood of the spread of disease. According to the Lung Association, effective ventilation may also help keep bacteria, viruses and other pollutants out of the indoor air. Research shows that airflow and ventilation can alter how diseases spread indoors. The more stagnant the air is, the more likely diseases are to spread. Like the lungs, homes need to be able to breathe to make sure that fresh air comes in and dirty air goes out. Indoor air can build up high levels of moisture, odors, gases, dust, and other air pollutants. To keep the air safe indoors, fresh outdoor air is needed to dilute these indoor pollutants.
Meanwhile, Harvard has found that ventilation is a crucial part of how viruses and bacteria spread within indoor environments. Recirculating air in buildings such as your home can lead to a higher risk of infection during outbreaks. Even minimum ventilation can cut influenza transmission as much as having 50 to 60 percent of the people in the building vaccinated.
QuietCool Whole House Fans were specifically designed to assist with ventilation and should be used frequently to replace the air in your home. Utilizing the clean air that already exists outside while saving up to 50 to 90 percent on your A/C related costs rather than manufacturing clean air at a much higher cost could greatly reduce the spread of illness.
