According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, anaverage person spends almost 90 percent of their day inside, 70 percent of which is spent in one's own home. Without proper maintenance, HVAC systems are more likely to act as a breeding ground for a variety of Harmful Contaminants including, but not limited to mold, fungi, bacteria and minuscule dust particles.
Those who suffer from respiratory health conditions, autoimmune disorders or environmental allergies are more likely to have serious health issues if in contact with a contaminated HVAC system.
The U.S. Department of Energy reveals 25 to 40 percent ofenergy used for heating and cooling is wasted. The regular maintenance of you HVAC system will ensure that it uses its full potential.
