Does your family suffer from Allergies? Asthma? Headaches? The Indoor Air Quality at your home may be to blame. According to the EPA, “Indoor air pollution is among the top five environmental health risks.” Some pollutants that can affect the air quality in your home are: dust mites, molds, bacteria, viruses, pet dander, gas cooking stoves, tobacco smoke, cleaning products, pesticides, varnishes, paints, adhesives, building materials, and furnishings. While getting an air purification system will not solve all of your health issues, it will significantly improve the cleanliness of the air you and your family are breathing.
We’ve all heard the saying, “Just because you don’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there.” Although we rarely think of them, many times air ducts are the dirtiest, most contaminated part of your home. Why? Over time and through changing seasons dust, mold, mildew, pollen, pet dander, and other contaminants will collect within your air ducts- All of which is circulated through your central air system. So, every time your HVAC unit turns on, the fan will circulate that contaminated, dirty air into your home. In fact, according to the EPA, levels of air pollution inside of your home can be two to five times higher than outdoor levels!
