Indoor Air Quality
Indoor Air Quality
When it comes to indoor air quality, the fight against the countless pollutants that invade your living space can seem impossible. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, indoor air is often much more polluted than outside air. And when you add to that the fact that many people spend as much as 90 percent of their time indoors, most of us could be in for a lot of trouble if the indoor air quality is poor.
The Risks and Who’s Affected
- The EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health.
- In general, indoor air is four to five times more polluted than outdoor air.
- More than 15 million Americans are estimated to have asthma, including 1-in-13 school-age children.
- In the last 30 years, the number of people with asthma has gone up almost 50%.
- About 87% of American homeowners are not aware that pollution may be worse inside their homes than outside.
- The World Health Organization estimates that about 30% of newly constructed and remodeled facilities have indoor air quality problems.
- Because they breathe faster than adults, children inhale more than 50% more air per body weight than adults and are especially sensitive to air quality problems.
Carrier Infinity Air Purifier GAPA
One way to improve the quality of indoor air is through the use of an air purifier, and Deljo Heating & Cooling can provide you with the finest on the market, Carrier’s Infinity Air Purifier GAPA.
The award-winning Infinity air purifier works silently in-line with your HVAC system to make the air you breathe healthier. It uses Captures and Kills technology to trap up to 95% of pathogens down to .30 microns in size and then uses an electrical charge to kill or inactivate them.
With every cycle of air that passes through this patented air purifying system, pollen, animal dander, smoke, bacteria and other pollutants are trapped and held tightly to the filter. An electrical charge then bursts the cell walls of the pathogens trapped in the filter.
