INDOOR AIR QUALITY Is my home making me sick?
Few things are as important as the air you breathe. Air is essential for life. Air quality impacts your family's health, comfort and belonging. Breathing is so automatic we usually don't think about what's lingering in the air—especially at home.
But did you know the air your breathe in your home may be more harmful than the air you breathe outside?
Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a term referring to the air quality within your home, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of your family. IAQ is one of the top health concerns of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and their findings have been supported by the American Lung Association, The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and other organizations concerned about our health and indoor air environment.*
Since the early 70’s, homes have been built tighter to conserve energy by keeping cold air out in the winter and hot air out in the summer. While this does conserve energy, it also contributes to ‘Tight Home Syndrome’. Tight Home Syndrome locks in dirty, sick and stale air and contributes to indoor air pollution. This indoor air pollution has been categorized by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) into three danger levels; Particles, Germs and Gases, and most often can contain microbial contaminants, such as mold and bacteria, gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), dust, pollen and much more that can induce adverse health conditions. According to the EPA, your indoor air is typically 2 – 5 times and can be up to 100 times more polluted than outside air. Much of this pollution comes from toxic off gassing from carpets, building material, paint, stain, cleaning chemicals, disinfectants, bug sprays and more. Although we continue to pollute outside air it is cleansed by Mother Nature with the weather, ionization and UV energy from the sun. These natural cleansing actions are not present indoors and our immune system cannot keep up with this over abundance of indoor air pollution. The American Lung Association estimates that most people spend 90% of their time indoors breathing ultra fine particles, germs and gases that pass through our lungs and enter the bloodstream. These are the main causes of asthma, allergies and other ailments so, paying special attention to cleaning your indoor air is very important.
The EPA recommends that you have your air ducts, heating and cooling systems inspected first by a professional heating and cooling contractor. If we discover that your air ducts have substantial visible mold, dust, dirt, and other contaminants or a musty odor, we may recommend duct cleaning. This is especially important if someone in your household suffers from asthma, allergies, or other symptoms that may be related to indoor air pollution. Although duct cleaning alone has never been shown to actually prevent health problems, it is an important step in a whole-house air cleaning strategy. Callen's technician can perform ductwork installation to meet your system requirements.
Much of the dirt and dust that accumulates in the ducts adheres to the duct surfaces and to the furnace and air conditioning components. This does not mean that it necessarily becomes airborne and enters our breathing space. However, this accumulation is a perfect breeding ground for mold, bacteria, and other fungi that are definite sources of indoor air pollution. It also reduces the efficiency of your heating and cooling system.
We will share options to clean, disinfect and deodorize the air in your home 24 hours a day, naturally and without chemicals; then you can decide which best fits your concerns and needs.

Improve Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) with whole-home solutions and state-of-the-art control over humidity, air purity, ventilation and temperature. Healthy Home solutions improve a family’s health, increase comfort and energy efficiency and help preserve the home.
Aprilaire's whole-house indoor air quality products work with your existing HVAC system to treat and control the air quality in your entire home.
Why do you need a whole-house solution versus a portable unit?
Simple. It's the healthier and more efficient choice.
A portable unit only treats the air in its immediate vicinity. Meanwhile, the air in other areas of your home may make you sick or uncomfortable. Just as it makes sense to treat the entire water supply coming into your home, it makes sense to treat the entire air supply in your home.
When Aprilaire Whole-House Products was created, they considered your entire home. Their solutions work with all common HVAC brands and systems to treat a high volume of air through a single system to help you gain efficiencies in costs.
