Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA, indoor air pollution is one of the most concerning environmental dangers that we face daily. It’s estimated that our indoor air has 5 times the number of pollutants than outdoor air. Some homes may even have up to 100 times more pollutants.
There are sources of indoor pollution everywhere inside of homes. From the chemical agents released from cleaning and personal care products, paint as well as solvents to combustion pollutants such as gas stoves, kerosene heaters, charcoal grills and more.
Believe it or not, your HVAC system can function as more than just a source for warm and cool air, in conjunction with the right products it can also help to regulate the air quality inside your home. Aside from changing out your air filters every few months, you can also clean, purify, humidify and dehumidify your indoor air for the ultimate in comfort and health.
