Heating Contractor Imparts IAQ Healthy Tips
Let’s talk about the indoor air quality (IAQ) in your Des Peres home. Does anyone in your home suffer from allergies, asthma or other respiratory conditions? Are any of your occupants elderly or under 6 years old? How often do you clean your home? Also, how do the aforementioned questions correlate to each other?
It's quite simple.
Indoor air quality influences your home and family's health. Lead, mold, mildews, bacterial, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter and other household contaminants counter healthy indoor air quality.
Data and statistics aggregated by the World Health Organization (WHO), indicated that 600,000 children suffer from mental impairment due to lead exposure.

In addition to thoroughly ridding the home of dust, dirt and lead, which contribute to poor IAQ, something as simple as an old filter has the ability to enhance IAQ.
Robert Hoffmann, the owner of Hoffmann Brothers Heating and Cooling service advises Des Peres homeowners: “Change out the air filter every 30 days to enhance good indoor air quality.”
