Indoor Air Quality

We spend most of our time indoors and give little attention to the indoor air quality that surrounds us. We breathe about 20-40 times per minute on average and everything in our air ends up in our bodies. EPA studies have shown that indoor air pollution can be up to five (5) times worse than outdoor air pollution.

Heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, if not properly maintained, can be sources of mold, bacteria, pollen, dust, viruses and other contaminates. The professionals at Elite Heating and Air can check for these problems and offer solutions for better health.

One of the ways to reduce mold and mildew growth is to limit indoor humidity. If indoor humidity is too high, mold can grow at an alarming rate. You may need a de-humidifier in your home or office.

Traditional heating systems burn fuels such as natural gas, propane or heating oil to create heat. Any of these fuels can create toxic gases that must not be allowed to enter your home or office. The fire box and heat exchanger in your furnace must be inspected and maintained annually for your safety.
