Since the early 1970s most home construction has changed to a more energy efficient design. Our homes are built “tighter” with the use of additional insulation, double glass windows and doors, and more weather stripping. This “tight” form of construction is much more resistant to fresh air exchanges, and therefore tends to trap the stale, stagnant, polluted air that some of us spend over 90% of our time breathing.

Complaints of sickness from polluted indoor air caused a nationally recognized issue by the late 1980s. Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) is now more of an issue than ever.

Many kinds of bacteria and viruses pass through the air, including the common cold and other more dangerous illnesses such as Legionella. These organisms can thrive on the inside of heating and air conditioning systems causing numerous health problems. There are also particles of pollen, dust mites, dirt and pet dander to consider.

The solution to almost all IAQ issues is very straight forward with a proper diagnosis. Most homes have different requirements therefore the equipment our professional recommends for your home may be different from what we would recommend for your neighbors. You owe it to yourself and your family to have fresher more breathable air that’s virtually free of potentially harmful contaminants.

  • The EPA – States that indoor air is one of the top five environmental health risks of our time.
  • American College of Allergist & Asthma – States that 40% – 50% of all illnesses are caused by polluted indoor air.
  • The Center for Disease Control – Offers Guidelines for using equipment that we use on a regular basis to disinfect and clean the air.
  • The EPA – States that the levels of hazardous pollutants in indoor air has been found to be up to 60 times greater than outdoor air.

A brief description of some of our products to help you feel better:
