There are many sources of indoor air pollution in any home. These include combustion sources such as oil, gas, kerosene, coal, wood, and tobacco products; building materials and furnishings, asbestos-containing insulation, wet or damp carpet, and cabinetry or furniture made of certain pressed wood products; products for household cleaning and maintenance, personal care, or hobbies; central heating and cooling systems and humidification devices; and outdoor sources such as radon, pesticides, and outdoor air pollution.
With all of these sources contributing to the poor quality of the indoor we breathe, it's easy to see how the harmful effects can be difficult to control.Contact a trained professional to conduct an air quality audit of your home to determine what risks you and your family are exposed to and how to best eliminate or minimize those dangers through indoor air quality solutions.
A poorly maintained cooling and heating system, including dirty ductwork, can cost hundreds in higher utility bills. This can all be prevented with a proper indoor air quality inspection from a trained professional.
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency): "Accumulated debris can restrict the airflow in your air ducts, making your system work harder to heat and cool your home. A build-up of .042 (1/20) inches of dirt on the heating or cooling coil can result in a decrease in efficiency of 21% increasing your monthly utility and fuel bills.”
