Indoor Air Quality. It Affects Everything You Do In Your Home.
A Growing Problem: By it’s very nature , a new Minnesota home is susceptible to factors that may result in poor indoor air quality. Off-gassing from new carpets, sealing agents, chemicals, and other elements are part of the problem. Also, over time, dust, pet dander, mold spores, and other allergens can build up. Poor indoor air quality has been blamed for the rise in asthma cases – those who suffer from allergies are especially at risk. A “HEPA Healthy Home” is the best way available to combat these problems. Here’s how.
A Powerful, Effective Solution: A whole house purifier, will keep the air in your entire home clean and healthy. This system eliminates the need for multiple, individual room units and is quiet and out of sight, while creating and maintaining a “HEPA Healthy Home”.
Fortunately, Practical Systems offers effective solutions to tough indoor air quality problems
HEPA filters (High Efficiency Particulate Air) are among the most effective filters available. They capture 99.97% of all particles, even those as small as 0.3 microns. For comparison, a human hair is 150 microns wide. HEPA filters help reduce allergy symptoms, asthma, recurring colds and cough by removing particulates from the air. HEPA filters are so effective they are used in hospital operating rooms. The GuardianPlus Air Systems provide whole house HEPA filtration.
Proper ventilation is vital for healthy indoor air. Modern Minnesota homes are “tightly” constructed for energy efficiency. “Leaky” homes have higher air conditioning and heating costs. This tight construction results in lower monthly utility bills but may also result in poor ventilation. In effect, pollutants are trapped within the house. A Whole House Purifier provides a constant source of fresh, filtered outdoor air to provide ventilation for your home. This ventilation exhausts harmful pollutants that are not eliminated by filtration, such as carbon monoxide and other gases. Ventilation also controls excess humidity, especially important during cold seasons.
