Air pollution is a very serious problem for you and your family members inside your home.
The US EPA has named Indoor Air Pollution as one of the five most serious public health risks today.
They also claim that your inside air can be up to one hundred times more polluted than outside air.
Most AC manufacturers recommend changing your air filters every month to keep your system clean as well as the air you breathe.
So, Why change your Air Filter so often?
Do you know that every adult sheds from one to several pounds of dead skin each year?
Why does that matter?
Dust mites found in every home are invisible to the naked eye, and love your dead skin. They feed on skin flakes found in mattresses, pillows, carpets, upholstered furniture, bedcovers, clothing, stuffed toys and fabrics. After they eat your skin they “dump” all over your home. The dust mites, their body parts and their feces blow around your home with every motion you make, when you breathe, when the air conditioner blower runs, when you walk to the refrigerator, the bathroom or the bedroom.
This indoor pollution can trigger asthma attacks in children and adults.
In addition to dust mites, the air in your home contains dust, bacteria, viruses, mold spores, pet dander, hair, pesticides, VOC’s, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and radon that can cause grave illnesses. At a minimum, changing your air filter will keep the dust and some of the other “yuck” out of the air that you breathe.
Ideally, you should install a more efficient Air Purifier that can filter more out of the air than just mites and dust. Air Filters and Air Purifiers are available to suit your needs and your budget that are able to filter out smoke, odors, mold, viruses and bacteria and some not only filter but also can kill these pollutants so they don’t re-enter the air being pumped around your home – the air you and your family breathe from 12 to 20 times per minute (that’s 23 to 31 times per minute for children.)
