Indoor air quality...A risk you can do something about.
Portland area homes are built to be energy-(and therefore cost)-efficient by holding heat in during the winter time and keeping heat out during the summer. Indoor pollutants such as household cleaning and maintenance products, personal care products, hobby or home improvement activities and pet dander contribute to poor indoor air quality. And outdoor pollutants such as pesticides, pollen, lead and other pollutants may be tracked into the home by people or pets. These are all common sources of indoor air pollution. Please contact us if indoor air quality is a concern to you and you would like more information on the Air Scrubber Plus, or the LifeBreath systems!
If you have a child with asthma or are sensitive to allergies you know how important it is to have clean indoor air, it can make all the difference in the world. But did you also know that exposure to radon in the home is responsible for ~ 20,000 lung cancer death each year? And that mold exposure can lead to respiratory complaints, asthma and allergic reaction?
Asthma – About 23 million people, including 6.8 million children, have asthma and 12 million people report having an asthma attack in the past year. Asthma accounts for nearly 17 million physician office and hospital visits, and nearly 2 million emergency department visits each year.
Radon – Radon is a cancer causing natural radioactive gas that you can’t see, smell or taste. Its presence in your home can pose a danger to your family’s health. Radon is the 2nd leading cause of lung cancer in America and claims about 20,000 lives annually. It is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smokers.
Molds – Nearly all chronic sinus infection (afflicting 37 million Americans) are a result of molds. A 300% increase in the asthma rate over the past 20 years has been linked to molds.
That is why indoor air quality is a growing concern for every home and business.
We are pleased to offer you LifeBreath, the leading supplier of indoor air treatments including the turbulent flow precipitator, heat recovery ventilator and the clean air furnace.
Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRVs) The compact, electrically - powered Heat Recovery Ventilators (HRV) move stale, contaminated, warm air from inside the house to outdoors. At the same time they draw fresh oxygen-laden air from outside and distribute it throughout the house. Stale, polluted air is constantly being replaced by an equal quantity of fresh clean air. As the two air streams pass through the unit they do not mix. They pass on either side of an aluminum heat-exchange core which transfers heat from the outgoing air to the incoming air. The efficiency of the Lifebreath HRVs are so great that virtually none of the warmth collected from your home is lost to the outside. In summer, the HRV's work in reverse - removing heat from the incoming air and transferring it to the outgoing air, to keep your home cool and fresh.
