While many people are aware of pollution and its impact on outdoor air quality, few are aware that a variety of pollutants compromise the integrity of indoor air quality as well. For those with allergies or asthma, indoor air pollution can be especially bothersome. However, an air filtration system can help reduce or eliminate these indoor air pollutants in no time at all.
Indoor air pollution can often have debilitating side effects which contribute to the overall incidence of diseases such as cancer, asthma and heart disease. According to Global Health Risks,”Indoor air pollution is responsible for 2.7% of the global burden of disease.” The major indoor air pollutants responsible for the onset of disease include carbon monoxide, radon, second hand smoke, volatile organic compounds, ozone and asbestos.
While you could buy an advanced filtration system to help eliminate indoor air pollution, choosing this option is often extremely expensive. A cheaper option is an electrostatic furnace filter. A typical furnace filter has to be replaced and discarded on a monthly basis. An electrostatic furnace filter is easily cleaned by washing, up to tens times more effective at filtering indoor air pollutants and guaranteed to last the life of your furnace. Since you won’t have to buy a new air filter and dispos an old air filter every month for your furnace, you are saving both your money and the environment in the process.
