Having a Bad Air Day?

Posted by Tom Barrett on Thursday, April 14, 2016

Did you know that the air you breathe inside your home is, on average, four to five times more polluted than the air you breathe outdoors?  When we think of air pollution, most of us assume we’re referring to the outside air. While not true in all cases,  87% of American homeowners are completely unaware of the pollution that lurks inside their homes. 



Take a “Breather” From Annoying Sneezing and Coughing Fits, and Enjoy Allergy Relief With an Indoor Air Purifier System

More than 15 million Americans suffer from asthma, while an additional 28 million have hay fever, and other troublesome allergies.  The particulates floating in the air, in addition to smoke, dust and bacteria, trigger these conditions making breathing difficult. Allergens travel directly to your lungs because they aren’t completely filtered through your nose and throat.  These allergens may be affecting your family’s health This is why it is especially important to have an air cleaning system for controlling the air quality in your home.

Indoor pollutants may be found in almost every room of your home.  Some of these include:

Pet hair and dander
Dust mites
Mold and mildew
Fungus
Pollen
Cigarette and tobacco smoke in homes with smokers
Cooking grease
Lint


If you experience any of the following health conditions, you may live in a home that has chronically poor indoor air quality.  

Sore throat
Shortness of Breath
Itchy and watery eyes
Chest tightness
Coughing
Frequent headaches
Long lasting colds
Bronchitis
Chronic asthma and allergies



Breathe Cleaner Air by Evicting Dust Mites and Other Pollutants with an Indoor Air Cleaning System

An effective air cleaning system, such as Trane Clean Effects™, reduces asthma and allergy attack triggers in your home.  According to the BioMed Central Journal, an independent publishing house that provides access to bio-medical research, the Trane Clean Effects™ system eliminates up to 99.8% of allergens and particulates from filtered indoor air. Trane Clean Effects™ uses state of the art, patented technology, performance tested by professors at the Harvard School of Public Health. 

Most allergy symptoms in the fall and spring result from mold and pollen spores that irritate respiratory airways.  Because homes today are built more airtight than ever before, particulates and allergens remain trapped in your home.  Air filters that are part of modern air quality systems can remove some these pollutants.  

The Trane Clean Effects™ cleans more of your air than any other air quality system on the market.  In fact, it traps and removes more than 100 times more allergens that travel through your air ducts than a traditional one-inch air filter.  It does this by filtering the air 
through a series of electrical fields rather than by trapping it in a porous air filter.  

If a complete new indoor air quality system  is not in your budget at the present time, there are other tips that the allergy experts recommend for improving your home’s indoor air quality.

Control dust mites by washing sheets in hot water at least once a week.
Fix leaky pipes, and keep bathroom grout clean to eliminate mold and mildew.
Maintain a smoke-free environment.
Prevent pets from entering the bedrooms and off the furniture to avoid pet dander.
Keep outdoor molds, pollen and other irritants outdoors by keeping windows and doors closed.
