Energy efficiency has been a strong demand in the residential and commercial industry. As the industry made a shift to being more “green,” manufacturers have made products that are more energy efficiency.
On the other hand, indoor air quality has also been a very important to thousands of home owners and commercial property owners. Do people care more about saving more energy or creating a healthier indoor environment, or both?
Indoor Air Quality more Important than Energy Efficiency?
According to greenbuilding.com, “The second most important driver for homeowners to buy green homes was improved indoor air quality, especially when children are in the house.” We all like to save money on our energy bill. However, if your HVAC system is not working well your system will work harder, creating your energy bill to rise.
Not having a functional system, can also affect the indoor air quality because your system may distribute un-healthy air.
Poor indoor air quality can begin to affect your health and later on become a issue. I think they both can play an important role in a home. If you are saving money and creating a healthier indoor environment you will have a comfortable indoor environment.
