Indoor air pollution is a huge problem, since we spend 65% of our time indoors at home. Beyond health issues such as asthma and allergies, the long term effects of exposure to polluted indoor air can be devastating.
Poor indoor air quality can cause illness and acute health symptoms that decrease performance and can reduce a person’s ability to perform specific mental tasks requiring concentration, calculation, or memory. (Source: National Education Association Health Information Network and the U.S. EPA)
Make an investment in your long term health by contacting your local Miami Valley HVAC expert trained to inspect your home for dangers such as radon gas, carbon monoxide and mold. They will also look for the not-so-dangerous, but expensive, energy-wasting conditions in the house and suggest solutions. A qualified contractor will:
- Inspect and adjust heating/cooling systems to allow proper, healthy ventilation in your home and provide energy savings. Ask your contractor to schedule home check-ups each spring and fall to be sure your systems are in shape for the coming season.
- Test for CO and other hazardous system leaks.
- Locate any excess moisture buildup in the home, which can create uncomfortable living conditions for you and your family. Unhealthy humidity levels can lead to cause dangerous mold growth in hidden areas such as your duct system.
- Properly clean heating/cooling ducts when needed to eradicate mold spores and rid the home of toxic build-up. Contractors who are part of the National Air Duct Cleaners Association are dedicated to the highest standards of waste removal and duct system cleaning.
- Perform routine maintenance of your HVAC system such as changing filters, cleaning burners and taking care of small problems before they become big issues. Properly maintained systems last years longer while running cleaner and more efficiently – to save you both energy and money long term.
