According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the air inside the average home is up to five times more polluted than the air outside.
Results from in-home air tests across North America support this government finding. Nearly every home (96%) had at least one indoor air quality problem. According to the Environmental Protection Agency we spend more than 90% or more each day inside our homes.
Problem: odors, chemical vapors, perfumes, cleaning supplies, paints, pet odors, cooking fumes, other airborne contaminants, small respiratory particles, bioaerosols/micro-organisms, pollen, dirt, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, and mold.
Solution: Air purification systems attached to the furnace or air handler which will remove and destroy contaminants before air is recirculated into the home.
Problem: Small, respirable particles and bioaerosols/micro-organisms, pollen, dirt, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses and mold.
Solution: Air filtration systems combat indoor pollution by capturing even the smallest contaminants and keeping them from recirculating back into the home's air.
Problem: Too Much Moisture can make the air feel stuffy and warmer than the actual temperature, and can also promote the growth of mold, mildew, fungi, bacteria and viruses. Too Little Moisture Can cause dry skin, sore throats and respiratory problems, along with annoying static electricity.
Solution: Dehumidifiers and humidifiers work with the home's heating and cooling system to keep moisture levels balanced in every room.
Problem: Poor Airflow is more common in newer homes because newer homes are more tightly sealed to conserve energy. Without the air moving constantly, indoor air becomes stagnant and contaminants have no way to escape.
Solution: Ventilation systems replace stale, contaminated indoor air with outdoor air providing the fresh-air feel of an open window, with virtually no heat/energy loss or safety risk.
Problem: Small, Respirable Bioaerosols/Micro-organisms, pet dander, dust mites, bacteria, viruses, mold and other contaminants that can collect on the air-conditioning coil, reducing system efficiency, and circulate through the home.
Solution: Germicidal lights significantly reduce concentrations of harmful micro-organisms.
