Indoor Air Quality
In a typical six-room home, up to 40 pounds of dust is created annually through everyday living.
Through normal occupation in a home, we generate a great deal of contaminants and air pollutants, such as dander, dust, and chemicals. These contaminants are pulled into the HVAC system and re-circulated 5 to 7 times per day, on average. Over time, this re-circulation causes a build-up of contaminants in the duct work.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 40 percent of the energy used for heating or cooling a home is wasted. Contaminants in the heating and cooling system cause it to work harder and shorten the life of your system. Although filters are used, the heating and cooling system still gets dirty through normal use.
When an HVAC system is clean, it doesn't have to work as hard to maintain the temperature you desire. As a result, less energy is used, leading to improved cost-effectiveness.
Staying inside during allergy season won't necessarily limit your exposure to allergens - allergies to substances such as mold, dust, and pet hair can be troublesome year round in your home. In fact, over half of all homes contain at least six detectable allergens, according to the American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology.
