Improve Indoor Air Quality By Going Ductless

Ditch Your Dirty Ductwork!

Did you know that your ductwork could be a major contributor to your health issues? If you have someone in your home that suffers from allergies or asthma, the quickest solution could be to address your indoor air quality. Many people search the world over looking for a solution to their health issues when the answer if literally under their nose. What’s making them so sick? The poor air quality inside their own home can be the cause or exacerbate existing allergies and asthma in their family members.

When we hear the term “air pollution”- smog, ozone, or haze hanging in the air, (especially in summer) – we automatically think it exists outdoors. But the ugly truth is – the air inside homes, offices, and buildings can be EVEN MORE polluted!

The Root Cause? – The air inside your home may be polluted by lead (via house dust), formaldehyde, fire retardants, radon, and even volatile chemicals from fragrances used in conventional cleaners. Some pollutants are tracked into the home, and some arrive via a new mattress or furniture, carpet cleaners, or a coat of paint on the walls. You’ll also find microscopic dust mites – a major allergen – plus mold and heaps of pet dander – YUCK!

David Lang, MD, head of Allergy/Immunology at the Cleveland Clinic, says “Even if you don’t have pets, you’ve probably got pet dander. It’s become what we call a community allergen. Pet owners carry it around on their clothes and shed it throughout the day. You can’t get away from it,” he tells WebMD. Especially when you have it re-circulating constantly through your inefficient, dirty ducts!

Eliminate The Unseen Offenders – People suffering from asthma, children, and the elderly may be especially sensitive to indoor pollutants, but other effects on health may appear years later, after repeated exposure. Indoor allergens and irritants have become much more important in recent decades because we’re spending more time indoors, Lang says. And because modern homes are airtight, these irritants can’t easily escape, and he goes on to add “We’re all exposed to a greater degree than we were three or four decades ago.”

According to the US Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA), the most effective way to reduce indoor air pollution is to reduce or eliminate the sources of harmful chemical emissions caused by . All the more reason to ditch that dirty old ductwork RIGHT NOW!
