Contact MSCO Heating & Cooling for Indoor Air Quality Solutions in Virginia Beach
When most of us think of air pollution, we tend to think of it as something we face outdoors. To be sure, in certain situations that can be a risk, but what many overlook is the threat posed by indoor pollution, by the air we breathe in places like our offices, schools, and homes.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency estimates that Americans spend about 90% of their time indoors, while the Environmental Protection Agency tells us that the level of indoor pollutants may be 2 to 5 times – and on occasion as much as 100 times higher – than outdoor pollution.
Further, indoor pollution is not just a threat to adults with respiratory issues like asthma and COPD, but to children as well. Generally, children inhale approximately 50% more air per body weight than adults, making them especially susceptible to poor indoor air quality.
Finally, to put the issue of poor indoor air quality in a worldwide context, the World Health Organization estimates that worldwide, 3.8 million people die yearly from diseases attributable to indoor air pollution.
These various statistics tell us that indoor air quality is a concern not to be taken lightly!
Common Sources of Poor Indoor Air Quality
So, where does this indoor pollution come from? Some of the more common sources include:
- Indoor human activities like smoking, cooking, cleaning, and burning solid fuels.
- Vapors from things like building and construction materials, equipment, and furniture.
- Various biological contaminants like mold, viruses, pet dander, dust mites, and various other allergens.
Help With Indoor Air Quality From MSCO Heating & Cooling
If you’re concerned about the quality of the indoor air you’re breathing daily, help from MSCO Heating & Cooling is only a phone call away.
The Air Scrubber
One of our most popular indoor air quality options is the Air Scrubber that can be added to your existing HVAC system.
Air Scrubber technology available through MSCO goes beyond traditional air purification systems by not only removing dust and stale air from your home, but also by eliminating harmful contaminants from the air and surfaces in your home.
And there’s more good news! All our trucks carry Air Scrubber equipment, meaning that this technology can be installed on your current system during scheduled tune ups performed by our technicians.
PlasmaPure 600 is still another option available through MSCO for improving indoor air quality. This highly innovative system uses bipolar ionization technology to vastly improve the air quality inside your home. PlasmPure technology is used extensively to purify the air in schools, hotels, and casinos, and can be used to keep everyone in your household safe and healthy.
And like the Air Scrubber, the PlasmaPure can be added to level up your current HVAC system, providing fresh, clean air for everyone in your home.
Ductwork Repair and Replacement
In addition to the installation of this advanced technology, the specialists at MSCO can also improve the air quality in your home through ductwork repair and replacement.
The obvious purpose of ductwork is to carry conditioned air throughout your home, but due to improper installation, collapsed ducts, or inadequate insulation, your ductwork may be in need of repair or possibly even replacement. And of course, over time your existing ductwork may become hopelessly clogged with dust, dirt, and assorted debris that have accumulated for many years.
In either situation, the specialists at MSCO can either repair or replace your existing system, providing you with much better air circulation, cleaner air to breathe, and in general, a more comfortable home, no matter the season of the year or the outside conditions.
