Are sick days getting your child down?

Common allergens in indoor air can make a child sick.

girl-with-cold.jpgIt’s not just outside. Studies show that air in a child’s home can be filled with allergen sources that trigger and worsen asthma and other respiratory illnesses.

Research shows nearly 40 percent of doctor-diagnosed asthma cases in children younger than six years old could be prevented if trigger sources in the home were eliminated.

When done right, energy efficiency home improvements can:

  • Manage humidity in your home all year.  By keeping relative humidity between 30% and 60% all year, you can reduce the levels of dust mites and viruses and bacteria in your home. 
  • By controlling sources of air leaks, we reduce air flows that move through dirty crawl spaces, or through spaces that are moisture or insect infested.
  • We can better filter air to remove allergens and other pollutants that come in from outdoor air, or that are created by human activities in the house.

As a provider of the Breathe Easy Home Indoor Air Quality System, ecobeco brings the latest technologies and standard to bear on your home to reduce the quantity and concentration of allergy triggers that can cause both allergy and asthma symptoms.
