Here's the good news: Today's tighter home save energy.
Here's the bad news: Such construction methods contribute to a growing list of family health problems including:
- Sinus problems
- Chronic fatigue
- Missed school and work days.
Today's tighter home construction has limited the exchange of indoor and outdoor air leading to a dangerous build-up of contaminants inside the home. Even if yours is an older home, it has likely been tightened over the years with the addition of energy-efficient doors, windows, insulation and weather-stripping.
According to the American Lung Association, "nearly 75% of Americans live with someone who has allergies, asthma, emphysema or another respiratory illness." Asthma alone takes an enormous toll. It "accounts for an estimated three million lost workdays for adults and 10.1 million lost school days for children.
There are many pollutants inside your home.
Dust, cooking and tobacco smoke, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, dust mite feces and chemical from aerosols, pesticides, cleaning products and "air fresheners" all contribute to the problem. In addition are the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) found in carpeting, upholstery, paints and in the engineered materials used in most modern cabinets, furniture and flooring. All contain resins and chemicals that over time release noxious gases into the air.
The air care units offered in stores and catalogs are inefficient and costly to operate. The most effective and economical solutions are those that treat the entire home -- not just a single room. We offer a host of solutions including:
- AccuClean(TM): This system uses a revolutionary 3-stage capture technology to remove an amazing 98.98% of allergens from your home's airstream, and
- active TEK(TM): Installed in your ductwork or plenum, uses the same technology developed by NASA scientist to safely scrub the air AND surfaces in spacecraft. This system is proven effective against bacteria & viruses, pet & cooking odors, mold spores, tobacco smoke, and volatile organic compounds (VOCs).
