What’s in the Air You Breathe Indoors?

At Getzschman Heating, our job is to make you as comfortable as possible in your home. That not only means temperature wise, but air quality as well. Do you often have itchy watery eyes? Headaches? Feel stuffed up? Breathless? Tired? Depressed? Did you know that all of these can be symptoms of bad indoor air? Dust, pollen and mold can collect in your air ducts and with every cycle of your furnace or air conditioner, they are re-circulated throughout your entire house. Most of the dirt that gets into your home never makes it out. In fact, of the possible 40 pounds that gets into the average home every year, up to 15 pounds can get trapped in your ductwork. And with dust, come dust mites.  

According to the American Lung Association, most people spend 60-90% of their time indoors. Most standard filters only catch 8-10% of the dust and irritants in your home. It’s no wonder people walk around feeling stuffed up and sick. Besides not being healthy, all that dust doesn’t do your system any good either. Dirty components make your furnace or AC work harder, reducing its efficiency and contributing to early system failure. There are a slew of good reasons to have your ductwork cleaned.
