Ahhh….One Breath of Fresh Air After Another Where it Matters the Most: Inside Your Home.
Every day, all sorts of pollutants can be found inside your home. Some originate from within, and others are ushered or carried in from open windows and doors, clothes, and the bottom of people’s shoes.
In fact, and according to the EPS, indoor air – on average – is twice as polluted than the air outdoors. It kind makes you feel itchy, scratchy, and sneezy just thinking about it.
Why Worry About Indoor Air Quality?
As you, your family and your pets go about your lives, you create and interact with many different types of pollutants, which can include:
- Allergens (pollen, pet dander, etc.)
- Smoke by-products
- Cleaning by-products
- Carbon monoxide
- Bacteria and viruses
- Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC)
- Mold and mildew
- And others
The greater the build-up, the greater the potential for negative health side effects, such as colds, flus, allergies, asthma, and other respiratory ailments. We’re not saying that indoor air pollutants are always the cause of all this, but they certainly don’t make matters any better.

Optimum Air offers several ways to help improve both your comfort and overall well-being. These include:
Ultraviolet Lamps – Ultraviolet lamps use UV radiation to kill mold, allergens and bacteria that reside both in the air and in your home comfort systems. The dark environment inside your heating and cooling equipment creates a friendly environment for mold and mildew, but the UV lights hunts them down and puts them out of your misery.
Air Filtration Systems – A High Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filter can be installed inside your ductwork to filter out more than over 99% of pollutants as they attempt – but fail – to pass through.
Humidity Control Systems – The amount of moisture in your air can also affect air quality and your overall comfort. A humidity control system allows you to reduce or increase the amount of moisture in the air depending upon your needs and the time of year.
