Indoor Air Quality: It’s a Big Deal!
Home indoor air quality is now a major concern! According to the American Medical Association, 50% of all illness is caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air.
Do you suffer from allergies, asthma, respiratory problems, sinus problems, eye irritation, and/or headaches? It could be caused by the air in your home!
If you answered yes to any of the above, you might be wondering:
“How can I improve the air in my home?”
Trap and catch particulates in the air of your home by upgrading to a high efficiency air filtration system. Thirty-five percent (35%) of your home’s air contains particulates such as dirt, dust, pollen, spores, and pet dander.
The Furnace Room, Inc. uses filters from Aprilaire, Bryant, and Columbia to assist the indoor air quality management of your heating and cooling systems. Feel free to have a look at a few of our air filtration options by clicking here.
Sterilize and neutralize the air in your home by upgrading to an ultraviolet light air purification system. Sixty-five percent (65%) of your home’s air contains volatile organic compounds and bio-aerosols such as micro organisms, mold, bacteria, virus, chemical gases, solvents, glues, and other odor-causing contaminates.

Air Duct Cleaning
Clean surface dirt and debris from your duct system. If the air ducts in your home have never been cleaned, you could be breathing dirt and debris from years of build up. Air ducts should be cleaned every 3-5 years.
Did you know the EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five health risks?
Dirty air ducts have been identified as a major source of indoor air pollution. In fact, an air duct system is a breeding ground for bacteria, animal dander, mold and dust mites. These impurities can cause allergic reactions, breathing difficulties, infections, and disease.
