The EPA has named poor indoor air quality as one of the top 5 environmental risks to public health. This makes sense when you consider:
- Americans spend 90% of their time indoors
- Your home’s air may be up to 100 times more polluted than the air outside.
The leading cause of poor indoor air quality is particulate matter, which includes dust mites, pollen, bacteria and viruses, dander, and mold spores.
Control Indoor Air Purity
The three most important methods of reducing indoor air pollution are source removal, increased ventilation, and air purification.
A whole-home air purifier, which is installed as part of your home’s heating and cooling system, is the most effective way to treat the air in your entire home. Aprilaire whole-home air purifiers permanently trap and kill 98% of airborne contaminants as small as one micro in size.
