-- Wolff Mechanical, located in Phoenix, AZ, provides many HVAC, heating and cooling system services to people in the Phoenix metro area. Along with repairs and installations, they provide several facts about the causes of poorly maintained HVAC systems and parts. It’s important to understand the facts so that proper maintenance will be implemented to avoid illness.
Fact #1: Indoor environments tend to have the most dangerous pollutants because of heightened concentration levels according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency. Pollutants can accumulate to levels that pose discomfort and health issues if too little outdoor air can enter through a home.
Fact #2: 9 out of 10 breaths we draw are likely drawn indoors. The average person breathes in 50,000 pollution particles a day, and takes 20,000 breaths a day according to Dirty Facts by Five Seasons, the Air Recycling Company. With the use of properly maintained air conditioning systems, the amount of indoor air pollutants can decrease.
Fact #3: Dirty ventilation systems combined with contaminated ductwork are a 50.9% contributor to ‘sick building syndrome’ according to a study by Healthy Buildings International. To prevent dirty ventilation systems, conduct weekly or monthly ventilation checks such as checking if there are leaks or hot spots in the house.
