The Environmental Protection Agency claims that indoor air is up to 70 times more polluted than outdoor air. Indoor air quality (IAQ) commonly refers to the quality of the air we breathe in our homes and offices. There are many factors that affect the IAQ in our homes and offices. Any unwanted substance in your HVAC system that can have a negative health consequence is considered a contaminant. Contaminants can be organic or inorganic, airborne, biological, or a member of the fungi plant group. Airborne smokes, pet hair and dander, cooking vapors, pollens/molds from outdoors, airborne fabric and carpet fibres, and molds and mildews from within are just a few of the many contaminants which impact our IAQ.
At Hayward Healthy Home Solutions we employ the proper trained HVAC technicians to also service your heat pump while on site cleaning your duct work.
Frequency of cleaning depends on several factors, not the least of which is the preference of the homeowner. Some of the things that may lead a homeowner to consider more frequent cleaning include:
• Smokers in the household
• Pets that shed high amounts of hair and dander
• Water contamination or damage to the home or HVAC system
• Residents with allergies or asthma who might benefit from a reduction in the amount of indoor air pollutants in the home’s HVAC system
• After home renovations or remodeling
• Prior to occupancy of a new home.
• For the average home 3-5 years is recommended
