How healthy is the air in your home?

If you can answer “yes” to any of the following questions, then you should have your indoor air evaluated:

  • Does anyone in the house have allergies, asthma, or other respiratory problems?
  • Does any family member suffer from headaches, nasal congestion or sinus problems?
  • Are there any smokers in the house?
  • Do you have any pets?
  • Do you experience poor airflow from your vents?
  • Is a 1″ throwaway filter the only thing that “cleans your air”?

If any of the above apply to you then you should look at the following data.
