Breaking The Sickness Cycle With Cleaner Air
The chances of catching a cold or other sickness from someone else in your home has never been greater. The reason is today’s homes have improved air sealing. While this is good from an energy conservation standpoint, the decrease in natural ventilation means contagions stay in the air longer, allowing them to spread.
A thorough air duct cleaning that includes the cleaning of your furnace fan and coil, combined with the installation of a high efficiency whole house air cleaning system (HEPA Air Cleaner) can greatly reduce the chances of getting sick by removing airborne contagions like bacteria and viruses.
What is HEPA?
The HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) or “absolute” filter is the most highly regarded mechanical filter. The HEPA filter is composed of a mixture of various sized borosilicate fibers, which are pressed together into sheets.
Who developed HEPA?
HEPA was developed during World War II and was initially used by the Atomic Energy Commission for filtering out radioactive dust and other airborne radioactive contaminants. HEPA filters are used today in a large number of medical, electronic and industrial applications where clean air is essential to the task or to the health of the patients or workers.
How efficient is HEPA?
HEPA filter media is proven to be 99.97% efficient @ 0.3 microns (about 1/25,000th of an inch). At larger sizes efficiency is even higher. Particles in this size range include pollen, household dust, smoke, bacteria, attached viruses, animal dander, mold spores and more.
