Did you know that according to EPA studies indoor environments can be as much as 100 times more polluted than the outdoor environment?
Climate Control Company is on the cutting edge of technology when it comes to consulting on how to keep indoor environments fresh and clean while also achieving the highest building efficiency performance for your home and business. We have professionally trained experts and instruments that can accurately read air quality levels and provide detailed knowledge of the appropriate available products to supplement the indoor environment.
Most people spend over 90% of their time indoors not knowing that the air they are breathing may be more polluted than the air outside. Breathing contaminated air puts the health of you and those around you at risk. In fact, the American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology states that 50% of illnesses are caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air. You can take control of your indoor air quality by reducing pollutants that can contribute to headache, lung irritation and fatigue as well as more long-term conditions such as asthma, allergies and infectious diseases. Improving indoor air quality can enhance your lifestyle when you control it at home; and, if you are a business owner, it can improve overall success with healthier staff and clients.
The best way to improve the quality of your indoor air is to eliminate the problem at the source, which is why Climate Control Company highly recommends duct cleaning as a regular service — especially with a new system installation. As air conditioned indoor air is being delivered through a series of connected ducts, particles of dust, mold and insect and or rodent fecal matter that collect in your ductwork, blow into your space. This can lead to aggravated allergies, illness, and is just plain filthy. Our team of professional duct cleaners will show you before and after images so you know exactly what was removed and can feel better about each breath you take.
There are many levels to maintaining proper indoor air, and one common solution is to improve it by controlling the humidification level. Comfort is the result of both temperature and humidity being at the appropriate levels. In the cold of winter, indoor humidity levels in Colorado can drop as low as that of the Sahara desert. This can dry out sinuses and furniture and cause static electric shocks. In humidified homes and businesses, sinuses stay moist, furniture does not crack as easily, and static electric shocks are greatly reduced. Higher humidity levels may reduce your overall susceptibility to illness. Another benefit of a humidified property is that it feels warmer, due to slower evaporation of perspiration. Therefore, the thermostat can be set lower, which may lower heating costs. Ask your technician or call our office today to find out your humidity level.
BUILDING EFFICIENCY PERFORMANCE
Over the years, with the continual rise of energy costs, buildings have been built “tighter” as consumers attempt to reduce the impact of this huge line item on their budgets as much as possible. The efficiency of a building’s systems can be tied into the quality of the air you breathe as well, so the two components go hand in hand. Our certified energy consultants can provide a detailed and thorough examination of the current performance of your property’s systems and provide recommendations and expected savings. In some cases, you can improve the quality of your indoor air while saving up to 70% on your current utility costs.
