The amount of time that the average American spends inside is increasing each year, as the evolution of technology and changing culture have created a society where individuals spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors.

While this may not seem troubling to some, the issue is largely dependent on the quality of air within the given place where these individual spend their time. If they work inside of a factory, serious health problems may be present, and the same goes for people who have an unhealthy residence.
Products like older heating systems are often one of the main contributors of dust and potentially hazardous air particles into a home, and people may want to remove these systems in order to provide their family with a healthier indoor environment. Given the amount of time that individuals spend inside, the change should occur as soon as possible.
Companies like Warmboard have helped to fix this problem, as its radiant heating systems help to reduce the presence of harmful contaminants. Because these products do not require the use of radiators, heating ducts or air vents, there is no circulation of harmful air particles around a residence.
Installing a radiant heating system is a process that many families choose, especially given the long-term savings associated with energy efficient technology, and programs exist around the country to support these installations.
For instance, Springfield, Missouri residents are able to benefit from a program supported by Habitat for Humanity, which provides needy families with monetary assistance to upgrade old technology in their homes to newer and safer products, according to KYC 3 News.
Because of this available capital, families in the area may benefits from any new installations into their residence.
