Are you worried about the health of you, your family, and your pets? Do you realize that the average person spends about 90% of their life indoors? And that serious air pollutants, such as dust, VOCs, and pollen can be 5x higher than they are outdoors? These may be alarming facts but there is good news behind it: We can help!
Air purifiers and filters are needed now more than ever
Many people wonder why there hasn’t always been such poor air quality indoors. The reality is that buildings in the modern world generally are designed in such a way that their building envelopes are very tightly sealed. This is great news if you want to boost energy efficiency but that added efficiency can come at the expense of air quality.
In the event that the building you spend most of your time in doesn’t have an envelope that allows your office or home to breathe, then allergens can accumulate. This includes the allergens listed above plus odors and other issues. Once again, the good news is that Econo West Heating Air & Plumbing offers several options to help clear up the air quality inside by using filters or systems that are dedicated to this purpose.
The list of contaminants in your home could belong
The specific contaminants in your home can vary based on a number of factors. Some examples we commonly find include dust, smoke, VOCs (these are essentially gases given off by plywood, adhesives, and other products), viruses, pet dander, skin flakes, and mold.
Many of these contaminants are invisible. No matter how clean you keep your house, they can cause issues. Not only can they affect the health of those in your home, but these contaminants can affect how well your HVAC equipment works. After all, if your filters are clogged with debris, dust, and other contaminants, then air flow won’t be even and you’re not going to get a reliable flow of the hot or cool air you’re expecting.
