Reduce Air Pollutants in Your Home
Indoor air pollution is a problem with dirty or contaminated air inside a home or building. Without the natural airflow of the outdoors, pollutants can accumulate significantly in an enclosed space.
Indoor air pollution can happen to varying degrees, but it is relatively common in many homes. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the average person in America spends as much as 93% of their life somewhere inside. A majority of that time is in our own homes. Factoring the people who work outside the home and those who work inside the home, three-fourths of the day is spent in our own homes on average.
Many of us our finding that number to only increase. With the COVID pandemic, many of us have found ourselves staying home more. For those who now work or do school from home, the amount of time you are in your home is dramatically more.

Your home’s comfort system should be doing a lot more than just providing you with a comfortable temperature throughout your home. Your heating and cooling units should also improve the indoor air quality inside your home.

Types of Indoor Air Pollutants
You can find a whole host of microscopic particles floating in the air of a home. Dust mites, allergens, and other air pollutants are just some tiny particles that naturally occur in houses.
Because of improved home construction and building materials, our homes do a better job than ever in being insulated. Unfortunately, this better insulation poses a problem. The pollutants that naturally get filtered out of older, drafty homes are kept from escaping more modern built homes.
