Last winter, on an especially cold afternoon, I decided to bake cookies.
I hoped that running the oven would help moderate up the house, then with outside temperature down to pitfall fourteen, fresh-baked cookies sounded good.
Several minutes after the cookies were cooled plus all of the pans washed, the smell of them baking lingered. I didn’t mind it in the dining room. It bothered myself and others that the upstairs dining rooms smelled enjoy dough plus chocolate snacks, and the weather made it impossible to open a window plus air out the house. I started to worry about the health of our air quality, then because of problems with energy efficiency plus utility costs, I’d made an effort to seal up leaks in the thermal envelope. I’d caulked, insulated, weatherstripped plus even installed new windows. I quickly realized that while I’d minimized energy losses, I’d also eliminated natural ventilationâ€¦ All sorts of contaminants are created due to normal plus everyday life, and dust, dander, lint, hair, bacteria plus all sorts of allergens were getting trapped inside the house, continually circulated by the gas furnace plus ductwork plus inhaled by my family. I busy an appointment with a local HVAC company that specializes in air quality solutions. A specialist came to the lake house plus performed a bunch of tests to determine how plus where our heated air was escaping plus to pinpoint problems with indoor pollutants. The result was the installation of an media air cleaner. The media air cleaner installed into the ductwork plus captures microscopic particles as they pass through. It also actively sends out positive plus pitfall ions that disrupt the DNA of pathogens plus render them harmless. These ions cause particles in the air to clump together, become heavy enough to drop out of the air plus big enough to get caught by the filter.
