Indoor Air Quality | Ac Duct Cleaning Jacksonville | Air Medics
Today's modern homes and buildings are sealed much more tightly that just 25 years ago. With the government pushing for higher efficiency ratings and energy savings every year this will become a even a larger problem in the coming years for Jacksonville, Fl residents.
A recent study by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) found that indoor air quality can actually contain more pollutants than outside air. The EPA also ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health.
Most American's spend up to 90% of their day indoors whether at work or at home. So it is possible that you are experiencing indoor air pollution and may not even know it.
With modern homes being built and remodeled to today's energy standards require that he building be air tight. Now this is great to save energy but it is horrible for us as humans. You can see that living in an air tight home does not allow very much fresh air to enter the home (air changes) so this seals in mold, pollen, volatile organic compounds (VOC's), bacteria and other pollutants. Without proper air filtration and treatment these irritants can wreak havoc on your respiratory system.
Some of the common problems experienced from poor indoor air quality are flu like symptoms, body aches, headache, lethargy, sinus infections and increased allergies.
Air Medics recommends have your ductwork and indoor air handler checked at least once per year during your annual preventative maintenance check up. The indoor air handler is a breeding ground for microbial growth and irritants, so it is a good place to start.
If you are considering an air conditioner replacement this is also a great time to have your duct work inspected, cleaned and sanitized. This can prevent the new ac unit system from becoming contaminated.
We can also perform extensive indoor air quality test through a third party lab that can perform the actual testing. We will tale air samples from different parts of your home and have them tested for overall IAQ. Once we receive the results we can then take the steps necessary to rectify the issues.
