This translates into lower energy bills which is great, however there is a trade off. Less circulation of fresh air, means a reduction in indoor air quality. Dirty air is unhealthy to live in. It also contributes to the severity ofallergies, asthma, other respiratory issues but, you don’t have to settle for living in dirty air.There are high quality air filtration systems available that work in conjunction with your heating and air system to clean up your inside air. In today’s tightly constructed homes, a good filtration system should not be considered a luxury, but a necessity for your family’s health.
