How Window Automation Can Improve Your Health
If we asked you to live inside of a room filled with Formaldehyde, Radon, Mold, and Carbon Monoxide, would you do it?
No? Well you’re not alone, because we wouldn’t want to either. It’s probably safe to say that nobody would be willing to.
However, most people do not realize that these and other harmful substances are commonly found inside of our homes. You could be significantly damaging your health as you are sitting at home reading this.
The American Lung Association warns us that the following harmful items can be found inside of your house and could be putting your health in jeopardy:
- Bacteria and viruses
- Building and paint products
- Carbon monoxide
- Volatile Organic Compounds
- Secondhand smoke
- Residential wood burning
- Pet dander
- Cleaning supplies and household chemicals
- Dust mites and dust
- Floods and water damage
- Mold and dampness
Where do these awful substances come from?
It turns out that paints, sealants, wood floors, building materials, animal dander, stoves, space heaters, and fireplaces all produce toxic chemicals.These harmful substances can lead to lung cancer, asbestosis, mesothelioma, asthma, throat irritation, flu and other types of infectious diseases, loss of coordination, liver, brain, and kidney damage, and even more health issues.
The American Lung Association says that “when not enough air circulates, pollution builds up indoors. Sometimes efforts to make buildings more energy efficient can backfire by not allowing enough air to move, building up pollution."
However, automating your windows allows us to make your house more energy efficient AND allows us to ventilate your home. This means that the Wyndflow Economizer can not only make your house more green, but it can also improve your overall health.
