We spend much of our time indoors in this country. For those who suffer from Asthma this can be a problem especially when our indoor air can trigger attacks. I’ve been talking about Asthma Awareness this month, and I want to draw attention to some triggers in more detail.
Improving a home with insulation and air sealing brings more than comfort and energy savings. It can reduce the amount of dust generated as well. Shutting down pathways to the outside can help reduce other pests and the influence of the outside as well. Sometimes the great outdoors isn’t so great for those of us who suffer from Asthma.
Air sealing can reduce connections to other spaces as well, such as your garage where chemicals and fuels are kept. It can also reduce connections to crawlspaces and basements where things can get moldy.
Consider an energy audit as a way to help increase the quality of your indoor air.
