It’s the time of year when we have friends and family in our home. Often family may come and stay with us for a few days. Do you have a guest or relative who has allergy problems? Consider getting your ducts cleaned before you have guests stay in your home.
Did you know that indoor air can be 3 to 5 times more contaminated than the air that you breathe outdoors. In some cases, it can even be as high as 70 times more contaminated. Many people wonder how this can be true since we live in such well constructed homes. Interestingly enough it is the new methods of construction that are causing a majority of the problems. You see, in an effort to become much more energy efficient, many new homes are built with very little natural ventilation. With the colder wet weather we keep our home closed up to keep everyone warm.
So here is how this directly affects you. After the summer when your house was open, contaminants gotinto your home. Pollen and dust from outside got into your air ducts. The dust cakes onto the sides of theductwork. Every time you turn on your heating or cooling system you are re-circulating this tainted air through your house. If you start thinking about your heating and cooling system as your air quality control system, it really does help to put this all into perspective.
