The ducts in our home ensure that conditioned air from our HVAC system makes it into every room, thus ensuring optimal comfort all year long. Yet your ducts may also contribute to poor indoor air quality, leading to an increased risk of health problems for you and your family. Let’s take a closer look at the negative impact of dirty ducts and what you can do to prevent them.
Dirty Ducts Mean Dirty Air
Americans spend a staggering 90% of their time indoors, with much of that taking place inside the home. Over time, contaminants such as smoke, pet dander, mold spores, and volatile organic compounds build up in the air of a home. As concentrations grow higher, your household may begin to develop health problems.
According to studies funded by the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air may contain up to five times more contaminants than outdoor air. In many cases, your duct system is a significant contributor to unhealthy levels of contaminants. A dirty duct impedes the circulation of air, leading to more stagnation and less filtration. Furthermore, dirty ducts provide a prime breeding ground for pathogens like bacteria and mold.
Whole Home, In-Duct Air Purifier
One way to alleviate indoor air quality problems is to have your ducts regularly cleaned. Another even more effective solution is to invest in a whole home, in-duct air purifier like the REME HALO. This purifier can effectively scrub all unwanted substances right out of your home’s air.
The REME HALO removes all three of the major pollutant categories: particulate matter, microbial life, and gases. This revolutionary purifier works using proprietary technology known as Reflective Electro Magnetic Energy. Unlike air filters, which only work passively, the REME HALO actively purifies and cleanses your air.
