Indoor Air Quality Solutions
Did you know that the air inside your home could be up to five times more polluted than the outside air? According to Trane, approximately 87% of American homeowners are unaware of indoor air pollution. In recent years, indoor air pollution has become more of an issue due to modern homes becoming better sealed. This is great for energy efficient heating and air systems as it keeps cool and warm air from escaping; however, it also means dust, dander, cooking grease, pollen, mold, and bacteria will not be able to escape your home. All of these contaminates are contributing factors to asthmatic and allergic reactions, as well as other illnesses and disease. Yikes!
