Indoor Air Quality & Ventilation
Indoor Air Quality
According to the EPA, your indoor air is typically 2 – 5 times more polluted (and can be up to 100 times more polluted) than outside air. Much of this pollution comes from toxic gases emitted by carpeting, building materials, paint, cleaning chemicals, disinfectants, pesticides and more. Although we continue to pollute outside air, Mother Nature works continually to clean it through weather, ionization and UV energy from the sun. These natural cleansing actions are not present indoors, and our immune systems have to fight to keep up with this overabundance of indoor air pollution.
The Canadian Lung Association estimates that most people spend 90% of their time indoors breathing ultrafine particles, germs and gases that pass through our lungs and enter the bloodstream. These are the main causes of asthma, allergies and other ailments so, paying special attention to cleaning your indoor air is very important.
Our Indoor Air Quality experts can convert your heating and cooling system into a whole-house Air Treatment Center. To control these pollutants that are injurious to your health, advanced air cleaning systems like the MicroPower Guard ® are designed to remove the smallest particles from the air; while the OxyQuantum ® UV lights will control both the germs and gasses in your home. As an example, particles that are 5 microns or smaller will pass through your lungs as you breathe, while 98% of all air particles are less than 1 micron. And, the smaller the particle, the greater the health hazard. Store bought filters cannot remove these smallest of allergens and have no capability of having any effect on germs and gasses.
