Worries over indoor air quality

Elgin, Illinois, experiences all four seasons.

Although the winters are long and snowy, my whole family enjoys downhill skiing, snowboarding and snow tubing at the Villa Olivia restore nearby. Even when outside conditions dip below freezing, the furnace keeps our home at the ideal temperature. While there’s a blizzard raging outside, we are cozy and warm inside sipping hot chocolate. After the long months of winter, the spring season is always welcome. I look forward to the first sign of tulips, daffodils and hyacinths sprouting. Summers tend to be hot and muggy, but it’s a great time to swim, picnic, barbecue, cycle, kayak and appreciate the Fox River. The fall season is absolutely beautiful because of the colorful changing of the leaves. The cool air is perfect for bundling up in a sweater. At that time of year, there is an abundance of fresh fruits and vegetables such as apples, grapes, squash, peppers, zucchini and eggplant. Unfortunately, the weather extremes make both heating and cooling necessities just about year round. To keep costs under control, I’ve added insulation to the attic, caulked around windows and weatherstripped the doors. I’ve done everything possible to tighten up the house and eliminate leaks. Sealing the house helps to reduce energy usage but also eliminates essential ventilation. With no fresh air coming in, the living space can become stale and contaminated. Dust, pollen, dander, bacteria and all sorts of pollutants are circulated through a recovery ventilator installed. The ventilation system brings in a steady influx of fresh, clean air to replace the stale, dirty air.
