Indoor Air Quality

Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) helps tame allergies, airborne pollutants, and dust

Believe it or not, the average person inhales approximately 15,000 quarts of air every day. Much of this is indoor air, especially during the cold winter months and hot summer months. The IAQ experts at 72 Degrees have the answer to make you comfortable, safe, and sound in your home.

Indoor Air Pollution

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental dangers to the public and identifies it as one of the leading health risks today. The EPA estimated that pollution levels indoors could be two to five times higher than the pollution levels outdoors. And on occasion, indoor air can be as much as 100 times more polluted.

Why newer homes are at risk too

The quality of indoor air has substantially deteriorated over the last 30 to 40 years, and it has occurred because of how homes are now constructed. Today, homes are sealed much tighter, and air cannot escape. So, the air inside your home stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer. These so-called “tight homes” are more energy efficient, but they also lock in allergens, toxins, and infectious agents. Find out about our air filtration systems. Click here.

Is your home too humid?

Excessive moisture comes from many sources inside your home and can be dangerous to you and your family since mold and fungus thrive off of moisture. The American Lung Association states that mold and fungus can trigger allergic reactions, and in general, these harmful particles can pose danger to people with respiratory problems. Let the experts at 72 Degrees test your home for excessive humidity levels. Click here.

Allergies and asthma

Since homes today retain air better than ever, both allergy and asthma sufferers are being subjected to contaminants such as fungi, mold, and dust mites. All of these can trigger asthmatic or allergic attacks. The solution is an air filtration system from 72 Degrees. Let us show you how we can help. Click here.

Duct cleaning and sealing

72 Degrees provides top-quality air duct cleaning to remove contaminants and help keep your household air clean and healthy. Over time, air ducts become contaminated with particles of dust, pollen and other debris that can cause allergic reactions or other symptoms in people exposed to contaminants. If moisture is present in your air ducts, the potential for microbiological growth such as mold is increased and spores may be released into your living space every time your air-conditioner or furnace is running. Let us help you live better. Read More.

Air duct sealing

Our technicians are trained and equipped to seal air ducts to prevent contaminants from entering your home – especially from under your house and from your attic. We use an advanced process where we seal joints with cement mastic that insures your air ducts remain clean and sealed – keeping contaminates out and heated and cooled air in.
