The experts at MTB Mechanical are here with a reminder: As most of us spend more time indoors in the cooler months, we increase our exposure to poorer air quality. In fact, the air inside our homes can be up to five times more polluted than outside air. At the same time, we’re constantly working to keep our homes as sealed up as possible in the winter months, which only complicates the issue.
Even if you keep your home as immaculate as possible, the air inside is teeming with airborne particulates. These pollutants can get into your airways and respiratory system, sometimes making you feel sick. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, indoor air pollution can be an even more serious issue.
So, what kinds of pollutants are floating around inside your home?
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Mold spores
- Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from household cleaners, paint and carpet fumes
- Bacteria, germs, viruses and more
The good news is you don’t have to accept living in a poor indoor air quality environment. MTB offers several high-quality, effective products for cleaning indoor air and creating a healthier, more comfortable home, including the HALO-LED™ Whole Home In-Duct Air Purifier.
This is the industry’s first LED in-duct, whole home air purification system that is both mercury free and zero ozone compliant. The HALO-LED™ proactively treats every cubic inch of air-conditioned space, reducing airborne and surface contaminants and pollutants through bi-polar ionization and revolutionary, patent pending, REME-LED™ technology.
