Improve Indoor Air Quality With Cousins Air

Posted on Indoor Air Quality November 3, 2010 by John Brescia

Indoor air pollution is one risk that you can do something about. In the last several years, scientific evidence has indicated that the air within homes and other apartments and buildings can be more polluted than the outdoor air. Other research indicates that people spend approximately 90% of their time indoors, so for many people, the risks to health may be greater indoors than outdoors.

People who may be the most susceptible to the effects of indoor air pollution are the young, the elderly, and the chronically ill, especially those suffering from respiratory or cardiovascular disease.

Your first line of defense against indoor pollution are your AC filters. Your ac air filters should be replaced or cleaned every month. A dirty filter causes most minor Broward Beach air conditioning and indoor air quality problems. Never operate your system without a filter and follow the manufacturer’s recommendations on maintenance and replacement.

A HEPA filter is a type of pleated mechanical air filter. It is an acronym for “high efficiency particulate air” filter (as defined by the U.S. Dept. of Energy). These air filters can theoretically remove at least 99.97% of dust, pollen, mold, bacteria, and any small airborne particles. Particles that are larger or smaller are trapped with even higher efficiency.

Cousins Air will help you regularly maintain your FL air conditioning equipment and help you enjoy the highest indoor air quality possible.
