Indoor Air Quality in Winter

Whole House Air VentilationUnhealthy Air Can Fill Your Home During Winter

Modern homes are often cozy in winter, but that warm and welcoming feeling comes at a price, and the cost may be to your health.

New construction techniques, insulation, and window technologies have made today’s homes airtight and draft-free. The problem is a lack of ventilation.

With a sealed “building envelope,” contaminants that get inside your home have no place to go. this includes:

EZ Breath Home Ventilation System

  • Bacteria, viruses, mold spores, and dust mites.
  • Dust and air-borne particulates.
  • Fumes and outgassing from new rugs and furniture.
  • Volatile compounds from indoor painting.
  • Dangerous radon penetration from your basement.

Allergies, asthma, sickness, and even radiation exposure (from radon) are the result.

The worst time for unhealthy air in your home is winter, when you have your windows and doors closed for weeks or months at a time.

Obviously, you don’t want to open your windows on the coldest days. Modern insulation and energy efficient doors and windows are saving you money with lower energy costs, but you need to find a way to deal with stale air too.

At D-Bug Waterproofing, we know you can enjoy a pollutant-free living environment with the EZ Breathe® ventilation system. EZ Breathe® has become one of our most popular services, especially in winter.
