Indoor Air Quality
In Canada, we’ve taken great pains to reduce the amount of pollution in our air. In the last couple of decades, there’s been a noticeable reduction the in the number of smokestacks billowing ugly clouds up into the sky, and cars have certainly become more efficient and a lot more environmentally conscious. Global carbon-reduction initiatives mean that the air we breathe outdoors is healthier than it’s been in years.
But what about the air inside our homes and workplaces? In Manitoba, we spend a lot of time indoors due to our harsh weather. This means that indoor air quality is more important here than just about anywhere else. The air inside your home can be even more of a concern to your health and comfort, especially in the winter. When cold, dry air enters your home and is warmed to room temperature, the relative humidity in the average house can drop to as little as 5 percent. Compare that to the average 25 percent relative humidity of the Sahara Desert and you can understand why the air inside your home can seriously affect your health and comfort. Since various studies have estimated that most people spend as much as 90 percent of their time at home indoors, there's reason to be concerned about indoor air quality.
