Indoor Air Quality
Whether it is winter or summer, when we close up the house most of us will begin to feel the effects of poor indoor air quality through dry skin, sinuses, stale air, etc. The average person inhales about 32,000 pints of air in a single day, with each of those pints containing billions of tiny particles including dust, pollen, dirt, and other microscopic debris. In fact, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air can be up to five times more polluted than outdoor air. Inadequate ventilation can increase indoor pollutant levels by not bringing in enough outdoor air to dilute emissions from indoor sources and to carry these pollutants outside. High temperature and humidity levels also can increase concentrations of some pollutants.
In order to create the healthiest indoor environment possible, you have to keep the air clean. The best way to accomplish this is to select an air filter system that meets your needs. Sounds simple, right? Unfortunately, the furnace air filter is a frequently overlooked source of poor indoor air quality, especially during the winter when heating systems run almost constantly.
