Indoor air quality is extremely important for the health of you and your family. With most people spending over 90% of their time indoors and indoor air being over 100 times more polluted than major downtown areas it is easy to see why indoor air quality is a fast growing concerns for many homeowners. If you have indoor pets, suffer from allergies, smoke inside, live in a home built within the last five years, or suffer from lingering odors, then your Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is likely very polluted. A recent study produced by the EPA or Environmental Protection Agency report the following:
- 50% of illnesses due to allergies can be caused or severely aggravated by poor or polluted indoor air quality
- 1/3 of the national health bill can be linked back to poor or polluted indoor air
- The average person spends over 90% of their time indoors
Honeywell Media Filters
One of the most important and often forgotten chores around the house is changing the return air filter for your air conditioning system. Forgetting to replace your return air filter on a monthly basis can lead to some serious health hazards as well as major repairs for your air conditioning system. This is due to how filters work. Filters are meant to allow air to freely pass through them well capture dust, dirt, harmful bacteria, and other indoor air pollutants. Overtime the filter will reach a point that it can no longer hold any indoor air pollutants. When this happens the air that passes through the filter will not be cleaned and if the filter is to clogged it may create an airflow restriction. This restriction of airflow can cause serious damage to your air conditioning system and lead to costly repairs. This is why we recommend the Honeywell Media Filters for our customers. By installing a Honeywell Media Filter you are not only capturing 10 times the amount of indoor air pollution particles you are also saving money. The Media filters unlike regular filters only need to be replaced once every six months.
