This is something to think about and can be very important in your life. We recommend excellent air quality products to help combat these issues.

Polluted air causes 94% of all respiratory problems

Each person inhales over 3,500 Gallons of air every day.

Every day, the weight of the air we breathe is more than that of the food we eat.

It is estimated that a person takes 20,000 breaths each day.

About 40,000 dust mites can live in one ounce of dust.

A person sheds up to 700,000 skin flakes per day.

A human hair is approximately 100 microns in diameter.

A very thin film just .002” thick on your indoor coil is all it takes to reduce airflow by as much as 9%.

People who are getting sick are Doctors, Teachers, Office Workers, and anyone whose day takes place primarily indoors. People that are not getting as sick are Service technicians, Construction workers, Police officers, or anyone whose day takes place primarily outdoors.
