Indoor air quality is a growing concern. According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the air quality inside homes may be up to 70 times worse than that of outside air.
With the increased prevalence of allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems in North America, it’s important to make your home environment as healthy as possible,starting with the quality of the air you breathe.
This can be difficult to do, especially in today’s energy efficient homes. While energy efficient homes are great for keeping heat inside in the winter (and outside in the summer) the tightly constructed nature of the homes make it difficult for indoor air to escape.
As a result, allergens and other pollutants build up in your home, remain trapped inside, and are inhaled by you and your family members. This can have a detrimental impact on your health, especially for those who suffer from allergies and asthma.
For help with eliminating allergens, odors and pollutants, consider having a UV light installed in your heating/cooling system ductwork.
If you have a forced air heating and cooling system with ductwork in your home, the quality of the air you live in and breathe can be greatly improved with the installation of a UV light in your heating and cooling system. With constant air circulation, the rays from a UV light installed in your system will kill on contact- germs, mold spores, allergenic mites and fungus spores. It will also help eliminate pet odors, cooking smells, chemical odors and many other undesirable things in your indoor air. Schedule today to have a UV light installed in your home and enjoy breathing cleaner air.
Indoor air quality can also be improved with proper ventilation. Optimal indoor air quality levels are achieved in homes that are equipped with a Heat Recovery Ventilator (HRV).
