  • Indoor Air Quality - Keeping The Air We Breath Healthier

    Written by ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling & Electric

    Indoor air contamination contributes to as much as half of all illnesses. More than 15 million Americans have asthma and 28 million suffer from hay fever and other allergies that are aggrevated by poor indoor air quality.

    The average adult inhales approximately 15,000 quarts of air each day. Children inhale 50% more air per pound of body weight than adults making them especially sensitive to air quality issues.

    Does A Furnace Air Filter Help With Indoor Air Quality?

    The main role of a standard air filter is to keep the inside of your furnace free of contamination. Its second role is to make the air in your home cleaner. While store bought air filters offer varying levels of effectiveness, to remove the majority of particles a whole house air cleaner is a better solution.

    A whole house air filtration system removes finer particles like dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, dust mites, mildew, lint, fungus, tobacco smoke, grease, and even bacteria.

    Carrier's Infinity® air purifier, for example, cleans indoor air as many as 8 times an hour with an enviable MERV rating of 15 and removes pollutants from the air that are up to 18,000 times smaller than the head of a pin.
