Austin HVAC Experts, Casa Mechanical, Provide a Breath of Fresh Air with These Indoor Air Quality Facts
With all the talk about going Green and the impact we have upon our environment, people are starting to assess the quality of their living conditions and ways to improve upon them to lower their “footprint.” According to the EPA, indoor air quality is one of the top five risks to public health. Unfortunately, nearly 25% of Americans don’t show concern about the air quality in their homes. According to the American Lung Association, indoor air pollutants like dust mites, pollen, mold, radon, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and chemical fumes make air pollution inside generally 2 to 5 times worse than the air we breathe outside. In some cases, indoor air pollution can be as much as 100 times worse.
Many people are not aware that improving their indoor air quality can be as simple as a phone call to their local HVAC expert. In Austin, Casa Mechanical’s certified HVAC technicians can provide quality solutions to indoor air pollutants like mold, pollen, dust mites, allergens and more.
