Local DUCTZ Owner recommends ventilation system inspection as part of improving indoor air quality
Glendale, AZ, Sept 12 2008 - According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), poor indoor air quality has a negative effect on students nationwide, and could be affecting students in the Phoenix area.
The EPA reports that poor indoor air quality increases student absenteeism, decreases student and staff concentration and student performance, and raises the risk of indoor-air-quality-related health conditions such as asthma and respiratory illnesses.
As the new school year commences, Vince Divarco, owner of DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals of North Phoenix and Deer Valley urges parents, teachers, and administrators in the Phoenix area to provide an optimal learning and teaching environment by seeing that measures are taken to improve the indoor air quality of schools.
According to the EPA, maintaining properly functioning heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems is an integral part to providing students with good indoor air quality. Coinciding with suggestions by the EPA, DUCTZ recommends taking the following measures to help improve the functioning of a schools' HVAC system:
- Call a professional who specializes in HVAC system restoration to inspect the school's HVAC system for any elements that could aid in the deterioration of indoor air quality.
- See that HVAC filters are changed on regular basis to prevent contaminant sources from entering the building.
"Improving our schools' indoor air quality benefits everyone involved," said Divarco. "Phoenix area parents should insist that their children's school has its HVAC system inspected before the beginning of every school year. It is an easy step that can benefit our students in a large way."
