    Thanks for telling me that having proper ventilation around the house can get rid of the possible air pollutants that we have indoors. The news this morning had mentioned that a lot of households suffer from bad air quality and since I have asthma, I shouldn’t keep it that way for our own home. It might be a good idea to consult a professional and see if installing a residential bipolar ionization unit can help in providing the good air quality that I need.
