Relief From Indoor Air Pollution
Today’s homeowners are realizing that keeping a home comfortable is about more than just temperature control. The quality of the air you breathe is too important of an issue to ignore.
Cleaning the air inside your home is more important now than it ever has been. Beginning with the energy crisis of the 1970s, new construction homes have become better insulated to prevent the escape of heated or cooled air. These air-tight, energy-efficient homes also seal in dust, dirt, pollen, mold, skin flakes, bacteria, and other airborne pollutants. These pollutants settle on your furnishings, your woodwork, and even in your lungs.
Indoor Pollutants Affect You, Your Home and Your Comfort System
Airborne irritants are simply a fact of life. Molds can cause flare-ups of allergy symptoms, and in some cases, trigger asthma attacks. Bacteria, viruses, and germs also can reside in the air you breathe every day. These airborne pollutants can affect your home comfort equipment, too. Allowed to circulate through your home and your system, these and other particles can build up on the indoor coil, inhibiting airflow and reducing heating and cooling efficiency.
Learn how to combat these issues as well as control your humidity and leave your home with cleaner, fresher air with a full line of air quality products including electronic air cleaners, ultraviolet lights, and humidifiers.
