"… While I have always received good service from your company, (the technician) was exceptionally thorough and courteous. He explained how to care for the system, and described clearly—but without pressure—the additional products and services your company offers. I was very pleased and wanted to tell you so."
In the last several years, a growing body of scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes can be more seriously polluted than the outdoor air in even the largest and most industrialized cities. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90 percent of their time indoors. Thus, for many people, the risks to health may be greater due to exposure to air pollution indoors than outdoors. In addition, people who may be exposed to indoor air pollutants for the longest periods of time are often those most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution. Such groups include the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease.
The following is a partial list of facts regarding indoor air contamination:
The average home should have at least .35 ACH (air changes per hour). An ACH of 1.0 means that air in the home is changed once per hour. Newer, high efficiency homes generally have an exchange rate of less than .356 and many are as low as.05. That can lead to extremely poor indoor air quality. Part of the solution might be the installation of and ERV (energy recovery ventilator), but one of our Certified Climate Consultants can assist you in making the correct determination for all your indoor air quality issues.
