Flu Like Symptom in Your Home?

Flu Like Symptom in Your Home?Flu Like Symptom in Your Home…Does your family suffer from winter sneezes, coughs, viruses?  We commonly write these off as “Flu Like Symptoms.”  Most people do not realize that indoor air pollution levels are higher than outdoor levels.  Sometimes these can be two to ten times higher according to leading allergist and immunologists.

Flu Like Symptom in Your Home?

While home purification systems help, you could be fighting a losing battle. What if the problem is behind your sheetrock walls?  Surveys have shown that 98% of the homes built in America have small cracks and openings in their duct system.  These openings affect the heated and cool air from your furnace to your rooms.

For starters, these small openings and cracks in your ductwork are creating higher heating bills.  Warm air is lost through the small openings. This can be as much as 30% of your heated air depending upon your home. This loss of heated air also creates “cool areas” in your rooms.

When cold air returns to your furnace, these small openings and cracks cause another problem. The cold air suck in pollutants and dust mites as it travels over dirty crawl spaces and attics.

A home purification system can address the pollutants in the air. But would it not be better to stop the pollutants from entering the air in the first place?
