Help children avoid asthma attacks by improving home indoor air quality. More than 6 million American children – nearly 9 percent of all kids in the U.S. – have asthma, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Each year, asthma attacks send more than a million people to emergency rooms, including approximately 24,000 children younger than 15, the CDC reports. Yet health experts agree many of those asthma attacks could be avoided through a range of tactics, including by improving air quality inside homes.
Radiant heating isn’t new, but its popularity is on the rise and becoming a major selling feature in new and old homes, putting conventional forced-air systems on a fast track of being a thing of the past.
