By

Recent studies show indoor air quality is becoming a top five environment concern to public health.  Need to realize most people spend 90% of their time indoors.  This includes your home, working at the office, and other buildings. As a result, there is a need to have a great environment on the interior of buildings.  This can be done by removing the following pollutants: lead, dust mites, radon, pest, carbon monoxide, pet dander, mold, and secondary smoke.  Good ventilation in the form of fans, and kitchen exhaust fans will aid in the removal bad air in houses.  There are a few homes that are taking additional steps by implementing hospital-grade air filtration, whole house vacuum system to insured all areas are allergen and dust free.  Now new home builders are constructing new homes more tightly, but this may cause another problem by keeping fresh air out.  As this happens, some homeowners are turning to heat and energy recovery ventilation.  These systems pull out the bad air and replace it with good air.
