Most homeowners in Fenwick Island, DE, are shocked and disappointed to discover that the air in their homes is two to five times more polluted than the air in their backyards. Indoor air pollution comes from many sources, including the materials used to construct your home, the products you bring into your home, and the activities you do in your home. Air quality monitors are a way to track your home’s air quality. Here’s what you need to know about them so that you can decide if getting one is a good idea for your household.
Display Air Pollution Levels
Indoor air quality monitors have a display that indicates which pollutants are in your home’s air and at what concentrations. You can track one or more indoor air pollutants, such as carbon monoxide, ozone, volatile organic compounds, or particulates. It gives you the chance to identify and eliminate sources of indoor air pollution.
Compare Indoor and Outdoor Air Quality Conditions
Some indoor air quality monitors have a second unit to mount outside. The indoor unit will display the outdoor air conditions and indoor air conditions. This allows you to compare the quality of the air in your home to the outdoor air. If you see that your home’s air has more particles in it than the outdoor air, this might prompt you to open windows or turn on an exhaust fan or the whole-home fan.
Smart Device Interaction
Some indoor air quality monitors will trigger your home’s heating, ventilation, or air conditioning system to do something in response to an indoor air quality problem. For example, if the indoor air quality monitor detects high levels of volatile organic compounds in your home’s air, it could trigger your whole-home fan or air purifier to cycle.
