Indoor Air Quality
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) studies of human exposure to air pollutants indicate that indoor levels of pollutants may be two to five times — and occasionally more than 100 times — higher than outdoor levels.
Newer homes are built much tighter to save energy. This traps the contaminants in a small space, allowing them to concentrate and making you more susceptible to their effects.
Common problems & consequences due to poor indoor air quality include:
- Leaking air ducts not only waste some of the money you spend to heat and cool the air in your home, they can also allow dirt and allergens to be pulled into the duct system and circulated throughout the home.
- Bacteria, viruses, & harmful chemicals in your home’s air can affect the health & quality of life of you & your family
You may want to consider possible solutions to keep the air in your home cleaner, and your family safer from these potentially toxic airborne contaminants.
