It’s amazing how the quality of your home’s air affects the quality of your life. Unfortunately, poor indoor air quality in the home continues to be a concern for many of us. Environment Canada reports that indoor air can be 4-5 times more polluted than outdoor air!
To conserve energy, homes are built increasingly airtight. This traps pollutants that can be harmful to you and your family and can make your home less comfortable.
Have you ever noticed that you can tell how comfortable a home is just by walking through the front door? Is it too hot or cold? Too humid or dry? Does it smell clean and fresh, or stale and musty? With the average person spending at least a third of their day sleeping in their home, don’t you think your home should be as comfortable as possible?
What does your home’s heating and cooling system have to do with your health? Surprisingly, quite a bit.

In recent years, the quality and cleanliness of the air that we breathe on a constant basis has received increased attention from doctors, scientists, universities, governments and homeowners worldwide. As study after study is completed, the general public is becoming more aware of the health effects that are caused by poor indoor air quality. In fact, Environment Canada cautions all Canadians that indoor air pollution levels can be higher than outdoor levels.
“In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other buildings can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors.
“In addition, people who may be exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time are often those most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. Such groups include the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease.”

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety identifies the following symptoms as being commonly linked to exposure to poor indoor air quality:
- Dryness and irritation of the eyes, nose, throat, and skin
- Shortness of breath
- Hypersensitivity and allergies
- Sinus congestion
- Coughing and sneezing
As an increasing amount of homeowners have become aware of the importance of indoor air quality and realized the impact of poor indoor air quality on their lives or those of their loved ones, they have turned their attention to trying to solve the air quality problems in their homes.
Milani offers a full line of products to help homeowners improve the indoor air quality in their home including whole house humidification, whole house dehumidification, whole house filtration and ultra violet air treatment.
Many homeowners find the excessive dryness in their homes during heating season to be extremely uncomfortable – and for good reason. Some of the common symptoms associated with a dry home include dry nose, cracked, itchy skin, sore throats, aggravated allergy and asthma symptoms as well as painful static shocks.
In addition, the excessive dryness affects your house. Chipped paint and plaster. split or cracked wood floors, furniture, trim and molding are all indications of excessive dryness in the home.
Did you know that in the wintertime, relative humidity inside the average home hovers around a bone-dry 15%? By contrast, the average humidity in the Sahara Desert is 25%!
We offer several whole house humidifiers to improve your comfort during those dry winter months.
In contrast, just as lack of humidification is a source of discomfort for many homeowners during the winter months, excessive humidity is a common problem in the hot humid summer months. Common signs of excessive humidity include “clammy” skin, stuffy feeling air, musty odors in the home and condensation on water pipes.
Whole home dehumidification systems offer several advantages when compared to portable stand alone units. Whole home systems remove 2 to 4 times more moisture from the air than stand alone units. Whole home systems are ducted into your home’s heating and cooling system to dehumidify the whole home when your cooling system is running – not just area in the immediate vicinity of where the unit is located (they can also be configured to automatically dehumidify a basement when the cooling system is not in operation). Whole home systems are up to 4 times more energy efficient than stand alone models and they are extremely quiet.
We offer systems that will reduce excessive moisture in your home and improve your comfort.
The air we breathe in our homes is loaded with pollutants like pollen, lung-damaging dust, pet hair, dander, dust mites, mold spores, bacteria and viruses. No wonder the Environment Canada lists indoor air pollution as an issue potentially hazardous to your health.
We offer high quality and highly effective whole house air cleaners to remove these contaminants and provide clean healthy air for your family. With the ability to choose from standard efficiency air filtration all the way up to hospital grade air filtration systems, Milani has a solution to meet your needs.
The Environment Canada, the EPA and The American Lung Association all agree that proper ventilation is one of the three major strategies to healthy indoor air. According to the EPA, concentrations of toxic pollutants can be up to one hundred times greater inside a home than outside, even in our smoggiest cities. As homes are built tighter with better windows, more insulation and higher-efficiency heating and cooling systems, the need for adequate ventilation becomes even more important. Gases and vapors – emitted from new carpeting, building materials, cleaning supplies, candles, pesticides, personal care products, glues and adhesives become “trapped” inside the home without proper ventilation.
We offer Energy and Heat Recovery ventilators provide fresh air to the home while reclaiming energy from exhausted air. These systems are becoming very popular as the concern over indoor air quality continues to rise.
