INDOOR AIR QUALITY
YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE TO THINK ABOUT IT!
Why is it important to keep your home's air clean?
It has been proven that poor health is directly related to poor air quality. Not only can an improvement in indoor air quality help reduce allergies and asthma, but air filters also reduce pollutants that may cause dizziness, headaches, nasal congestion and fatigue.
Whether they come from internal or external sources, pollutants in the home are present due to many different factors. Furnishings, such as upholstery, may release chemicals into the air. Pollutants often circulate through ductwork in your home or office, invading every room and living space. Inadequate ventilation also causes pollutants to multiply, while high temperature and humidity may increase concentrations of some pollutants.
Just because you can’t see the problem doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
Indoor Air Quality and Peace of Mind
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) affects everyone in the Dayton area. Ed’s Heating Cooling Plumbing Electric offers a variety of air filters, air purifiers, humidifiers and other products to help clean the air you breathe. No home is immune to indoor air quality problems, and all homes can contain elevated concentrations of dust, dirt and chemicals. Many of these impurities are not visible to the naked eye and, if not addressed, can lead to a breeding ground for mold and mildew.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 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 tested (96%)** had at least one IAQ problem. 86% had high levels of particles and bio aerosols like dust, pollen and viruses. 71% were filled with odors and potentially harmful chemicals and gases, while 46% had problems with temperature and humidity.
