Did you know that the air inside can be more than 40 times more polluted than the air outside? This is per the Environmental Protection Agency. The particulate in polluted air can be much smaller than a micron. They can include things such as microbial growth, dead skin cells, pet dander, fungi, chemicals, bacteria, pesticides and mold. Although it has been said main times, dust mites do not live in duct work and it is often used as a marketing ploy.
If you suffer from ailments such asthma, COPD or allergies, consider cleaning out your ductwork more often. It'll be easier to breathe once you get rid of as many microparticulates as possible.
When the inside air is polluted, it can cost many businesses tens of billions of dollars annually. Not only does it result in lost production, but also more in terms of sick leave and medical costs.
The EPA says that the average home sees up to 40 pounds of dust every year. Unfortunately, dust has more than dirt in it. It traps everything in the air that has been floating around you. You may be experiencing allergies or asthma as a result of air pollution.
Per the NADCA, about 40 pounds of dust can circulate through the vents of a six-bedroom home every year. The HVAC system in your home is how your home breathes. It brings in and takes out air on a regular basis.
Via everyday living, a lot of contaminants and pollutants can accumulate. These pollutants come from your family, friends and pets that frequent and live in your home. This includes things such as dog hair, cat dander, dust and chemicals. When something gets into your air conditioner, chances are it will recirculate about seven times during the day. This grime builds up in the ducts and negatively impacts the air that you breathe.
However, while this does not mean that all of your air is unhealthy, it does mean that if you suffer from any type of respiratory ailment, then you should be concerned. In order to prevent this, make sure you clean your ducts every few years by a professional.
