The list of pollutants in your home may surprise you
There may be any number of pollutants in your home. They could include pollen, dust, and VOC. You might be breathing dirty air every day of your life. For those with allergies, asthma, or depressed immune systems, the results can be devastating. The good news is that by using an air-purifying and filtration system, you could trap more than 99% of the allergens that are currently in your home.
Why does indoor air tend to suffer so much?
You may be wondering what is it that makes indoor air so much more dangerous than it has to be? The truth is that modern building designs result in buildings that are tightly sealed. This is great for maintaining energy efficiency, but it can also result in poor indoor air quality.
In the event the designer didn’t’ create room in the building envelope for the property to breathe, then there can be allergens, odors, and other air pollutants gathering. Fortunately, Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing can help. We can add superior filters for your HVAC system or add an air filter purification unit that works full-time to improve air quality.
Are you surprised by the most common indoor contaminants?
We’ve found that when we ask clients what they think the worst indoor contaminants are, they’re often surprised by the answer. They include dust, viruses, smoke, mold, pollen, skin flakes, and pet dander. Even gases from your plywood, adhesives, etc. (known as VOCs) can be damaging.
These contaminants are uncomfortable to breathe in, create air quality that’s lower than it should be, and can actually result in your HVAC equipment not working as well as it should. How? If your HVAC filter is clogged with these contaminants, then it will affect how well air flows through it. The result will be an uneven distribution of heating and cooling.
