Clean Air is Healthy Air!
Did you know that we can transform your furnace into a huge air cleaner? Your furnace is equipped with a huge fan to move comfortable air throughout your home. Why not clean the air as it passes through the furnace? We can turn your furnace into a whole-house air cleaner more than 20 times more effective than a standalone!
What is Indoor Air Quality (IAQ)?
Have you tried an anti-allergy air filter from the home store? You probably didn’t notice a huge difference in your allergy or asthma symptoms. That’s because a filter alone does not address all four types of pollution in our homes.
We’re all familiar with house dust. We track it in from outdoors on our shoes and clothing. House dust includes pollen, fine soil, mold spores, fabric lint, dust mite waste, and pet dander. Did you know that much of our house dust is actually dead skin cells from our own bodies? Gross!
The humidity (water vapor) in our homes ranges from “desert” in the winter to “tropical rain-forest” in the summer. Poor humidity control creates major issues from nosebleeds, dry skins, and static shocks to mold growth, dust mites, and serious breathing difficulties. For optimum health and comfort, we must maintain indoor humidity between 35% in the winter and under 55% in the summer.
Airborne chemicals (VOCs)
When we use any type of cleaner in our home, including plant-based, a large portion of the chemicals evaporates into the air. We call these Volatile Organic Compounds or VOCs. Modern homes are sealed so tight that the VOCs have nowhere to go and just circulate in the home, getting stronger and stronger each time we clean. Other big sources of VOCs include hairspray, perfume, and air fresheners. In fact, the EPA says that the air in our homes is up to 5 times more polluted that outside air!
Biological (bacteria, viruses, mold)
This last category of indoor pollutant can cause major problems. Mold loves the humid areas of our homes like bathrooms, kitchens, and basements. Active mold colonies send spores (mold seeds) into our air in order to colonize our entire space. A cold virus from an infected sneeze can last hours and be recirculated by your furnace to every room in the house.
Bacteria grows on A/C coils because of the constant food (house dust) and water (humidity) supply. Bacterial coatings on your indoor coil reduces efficiency and produces bad odors.
