Is My Air Clean?
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranked indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers to the public. EPA research also concluded that indoor air can be two to five times more polluted than the WORST outside air! Since research indicates most Americans spend 90% of their time indoors, it’s no wonder asthma and allergy suffering is on the rise.
Did you know that on average, people take 24,000 breaths each day? Each minute we breath about 2 gallons of air. That’s close to 3,000 gallons in one day! But the real question is what are you breathing on a daily basis?
Air ducts can harbor mold, dust mites, bacteria, fungi, rodents and other pollutants. One ounce of dust contains nearly 42,000 living dust mites. Each mite is expelling 20 fecal pellets every day into the air you breathe. Suspended airborne spores can cause numerous allergic reactions. Mold or fungi spores can contaminate indoor air, which can lead to allergies, asthma or other health problems. Not to mention viruses on top of all that.
According to the American Lung Association, 5 microns or smaller will pass through the human lungs. Now that you have learned what is in your air and the dangers they may have to your health, you can begin to take control of what you breathe! Below you’ll find more information about different Indoor Air Quality products and what they can do for you. Call us if you have questions!
Below are products that will help remove and alleviate the Three Danger Levels!
Goodbye dry skin, cracked lips and static shocks! Perfect humidity in the winter. Prevents drying of nasal passages which allows contagious viruses to enter the nose and cause illnesses. Relieves static electricity when walking on carpet. Keeps wooden furniture and doors from shrinking during the dry season.
Drain Pan Treatments
Stop the stagnant swamp with the Bacteria-Buster. Keeps air conditioner’s drip pan clean to prevent fungi, mold, mildew, and bacteria growth. Prevents odors from standing and stale water.
Dynamic Electronic Air Cleaner
The Dust Magnetizer leaves nothing but clean air! More than a filter – it’s a polarized media air cleaner. Filters submicronic allergens as small as 0.3 microns. 98% of airborne particles are below one micron and store-bought filters can’t collect these smaller particles. Includes one year’s supply of replacement media.
Whole Home Dehumidification System
Air conditioning alone can’t satisfy your home’s humidity requirements. Your air conditioning system is designed to control temperature, not humidity and only removes humidity as a byproduct of cooling. During the spring and fall if your air conditioning isn’t running and your house is uncomfortable, you need Aprilaire Whole Home Dehumidifier.
