As winter approaches, it is important to have your home’s heating system cleaned and inspected before you use it.
Firing up your furnace for the first time without having it properly serviced can have a big impact on your indoor air quality. A lot of people initially notice they have an air quality problem when they turn the heat on for the first time in late fall. That musty smell is the air system heating up mold, bacteria, dust, pollen – anything that might have been growing or building up in their HVAC system or under their home during the warmer weather.”
Bad indoor air quality (IAQ), particularly from mold, causes so many health problems that it’s now considered to be one of the top five environmental risks to public health.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, mold can also destroy whatever it grows on, causing thousands and thousands of dollars in damages to building material, furnishings and, when related health issues are involved, result in considerable liability costs. In addition, poor IAQ reduces airflow and may result in higher electric bills.
