Focusing on Indoor Air Quality in Dayton, OH

What is Indoor Air Quality?

The EPA and other health officials define Indoor Air Quality as the quality of air inside a home or building, particularly as it relates to the comfort, health and well-being of the people inside.

By cutting down on or eliminating indoor pollutants that are airborne, you can reduce the risk of health problems significantly. The concern with a lot of indoor air pollution is that many of the health implications aren’t always obvious right after an exposure. Sometimes, it can take years before serious health issues are noticeable.
Knowing this, residents need to ask themselves: What kinds of hidden toxins are floating around in the air I breathe in my home?

How Important is Indoor Air Quality?

Indoor Air Quality is more of an issue than most people suspect. Promoting optimal air quality is essential for the health and overall wellness of everyone living in a dwelling.

We happen to spend most of our time — an estimated 90 percent of it —indoors, whether at home, in an office, or some restaurant, work building, factory, or warehouse. In many of these kinds of places, experts are finding smoke, aerosol, toxic gases, chemicals, and other types of pollution floating around. A lot of this stuff is known to cause allergies, headaches, fatigue, and other breathing problems, in addition to irritation of the eyes, throat, nose, and skin. On a more serious note, the more severe indoor pollutants can cause heart disease, cancer, respiratory problems, and other grave long-term health conditions.

A Homeowners Guide to Humidifiers

Choosing the right humidifier for your home comes down to personal preference. Do you want a portable humidifier, or do you want one that impacts your entire home? Do you have children? If so, steam humidifiers probably aren’t right for you. Here’s a quick guide on the different types of humidifiers:

Central Humidifiers

Central humidifiers are the most costly option, but they are also the most effective in covering a large area. These are built in the home’s HVAC system. If you are willing to invest in a humidifier, it will add humidity to a whole home quickly. These also do not put off any steam, so there’s no risk for anyone in the home being burned. These are also the largest in size humidifiers you can buy. When not in use, drain water and/or stop airflow to the humidifier. You also should replace the water panel once a year and clean the drum and tray once a month if you have the drum style.


Evaporators blow moisture through a moistened filter. Fans power the unit and expel the humidity into the air from a single-unit system. These are less expensive than central humidifiers, but the downside is that they only work in one room at a time. They may also expel too much moisture into the air. This can be problematic, as it raises the likelihood of mold growth.

Steam Vaporizers

Steam vaporizers are electrically wired. They heat water and then cool it before expelling it into the air. These are the most inexpensive and portable humidifiers. You can purchase them at most household stores. The hot steam can cause burns, so they are not the most kid-safe.

Impeller Humidifiers

Impellers are the most popular kind of humidifier, also known as a cool-mist humidifier. They have a rotating disc that sends water through a diffuser which, in return, breaks the water droplets into smaller ones and disperse them into the air as a cool mist. These should be cleaned after each use on the inside and replace filter whenever you see that it is becoming discolored. People choose impeller humidifiers because of their price, cleanliness, low power usage, coverage of large rooms, and their ability to add mineral-free moisture to the air.

4 Benefits of Owning a Humidifier

Benefits of a humidifier may include:

Reducing Snoring

Increasing the amount of moisture in the air can also reduce snoring. If the air is dry, a person’s airways are less likely to be sufficiently lubricated, making snoring worse. Adding humidity to the air by running a humidifier at night may help to relieve some symptoms.

Retaining Moisture

Some people notice that their skin, lips, and hair become dry and fragile in the winter. Many heating units pump hot, dry air through the house or office, which can make the skin dry, itchy, or flaky. Cold air outside can also dry out the skin. Using a humidifier to add moisture to the indoor air may reduce the occurrence of dry, cracked skin.

Productive Cough

Dry air can cause a person to have a dry, unproductive cough. Adding humidity to the air can get more moisture into the airways, making a cough more productive. A productive cough releases trapped or sticky phlegm.

Protects Furniture and Floors

Moisture from a humidifier can be helpful around the home. Any moisture-loving houseplants may become more vibrant, and wood floors or furniture may last longer. Humidity can also help to prevent the wallpaper from cracking and static electricity from building up. Humid air can also feel warmer than dry air, helping a person save money on utility bills in the winter months.
