The air you breathe inside is just as important as the air you breathe outside. Especially since research has shown that we spend almost 90% of our time indoors.
Indoor pollutants include such things as mold, off-gassing from paints, building materials, furniture, dust, pollen, cleaning products, vapours from heated appliances such as space heaters, and many other invisible airborne irritants such as those provided by our much-loved pets!
Sound worrisome? In addition, as construction quality improves and houses are becoming better insulated and sealed, very little uncontrolled air is exchanged between the inside and out. Add to that the fact that today’s condensing furnaces don’t ventilate to the outside and tend to decrease inside-to-outside air exchange. This helps with your energy bills but also means that the inside air is continually being recirculated, sometimes causing the air quality to become compromised.
Don’t run for your gas mask just yet. There are several different kinds of appliances and air filtration systems available to improve the quality of the air you breathe within your home, at a variety of price points. At R&B Plumbing and Heating we offer and service a “healthy” variety of improvements from a simple furnace filter to an entire air filtration system.
Call us today and let our experienced staff help you assemble an air quality system that will work best within your budget and with your home’s heating requirements. At the very least, we can get you a good supply of filters.
