AirIQ with Field Controls: Why Indoor Air Quality Matters to Everyone, Even You

 

Residential air quality affects more than your family’s health; it costs time, money, and resources. On this episode of AirIQ brought to you by Field Controls, host Tyler Kern sits down with Ed Reynolds, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Field Controls, to discuss concerning facts about indoor air quality.

Indoor air quality refers to the quality of the air inside buildings as represented by concentrations of pollutants and thermal (temperature and relative humidity) conditions that affect the health, comfort, and performance of occupants. That quality affects not only occupants’ comfort, but their short-term and long-term health. Respiratory conditions such as asthma are especially prevalent in homes with poor indoor air quality, Reynolds says.

“We’re living in spaces much tighter than before,” Reynolds says. “We’ve got families that are living in a plastic bag.”

Reynolds explains that tight spaces obstruct the flow of clean, healthy air in residential and commercial buildings. That’s compounded by bath fans, range hoods, and clothes dryers that quite literally exhaust the outside air. These common building mechanisms push outdoor air inside, often to help clear out cooking or other odors, but if they’re not adequately ventilated they, too, can negatively affect your home or building’s air quality.

But HVAC experts can help alleviate a lot of these issues with a complete portfolio of solutions. Total systems offer more comprehensive solutions for indoor air quality, which Reynolds explains can put building owners and tenants both at ease.
