Indoor Air Quality
- These can range from pet dander floating in the air to dust mites in bedding, upholstery, and other soft material to VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) off-gassing from plastics, carpets, furniture, vinyl floors and even dry-cleaned clothing, all of which can become airborne and generate irritating waste particles.
- And then there’s the dust. The average home generates about 40 pounds of dust per year per 1,400 square feet of space. Add to this the other allergenic materials mentioned above and combine it with more modern airtight construction and you have a recipe for poor indoor air quality that requires a solution “ionic-type” appliances simply cannot deliver.
Air Cleaners and HEPA Filters
A whole-area air cleaner like the Trane® CleanEffects™ can help remove these tiny particles, combating the potential for asthma and allergy attack triggers in your home or business. Air cleaners and HEPA filters can catch dust, pollen, pet hair and dander, dust mites, mildew, and more, leaving behind only fresh, clean air.
Dry air can lead to a dry nose, cracked and itchy skin, sore throats, and other allergy and asthma symptoms. It can cause frequent static shocks, chip paint and plaster, and crack wood floors, furniture, and trim. Dry air also makes the air temperature feel cooler, making your heating unit work overtime to reach the right comfort level.
