According to the Environmental Protection Agency, health problems associated with poor indoor air quality include eye irritation, allergies, headaches, and respiratory problems, such as asthma. These problems can be directly related to the presence of mold, high volatile organic compound (VOC) levels, or dust mite infestations in the home. The recognized solutions to addressing these health issues are moisture control and ventilation. Ultra-Aire Whole House Ventilating Dehumidifiers greatly reduce the risks of these serious health issues through superior filtration, fresh air ventilation, and moisture control.
About Dehumidification and Your Health
To reduce dust mites, the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (AAAAI) recommends keeping humidity below 50% throughout the home by using a dehumidifier.
According to Partnerships for Advancing Technology in Housing (PATH), filtering and dehumidifying fresh air before it is delivered to the living area of the home may reduce the potential for triggering or aggravating allergies and respiratory ailments.
According to an American Lung Association poll, nearly 75 percent of Americans live with someone who has allergies, asthma, emphysema, or another respiratory illness.
