SBE's Indoor Air Quality Services in Bucks County, PA
What You Should Know!
Government research shows that people spend up to 90% of their time indoors, but research also shows that indoor air quality is 10 to 100 times more polluted than outside air. And did you know that each person breathes an average of two teaspoons of dust, dust mites, pollen, mold, viruses, bacteria, pet dander, carpet fiber and second hand smoke into their lungs each day? Doesn't sound too healthy does it? And your disposable filter in your furnace is trapping less than 10% of the pollutants.
What Can You Do?
The most effective solution - some say the only effective solution - to this problem is installing an air cleaner . An air cleaner will capture almost 94% of the pollutants in the air in your home! Over it's life an air cleaner costs less than 30 cents per day, a bargain compared to the price of your health. Ask about getting one for your home today!
Most Bucks County Homes Are Filled With Toxic Chemicals
New research on indoor air quality reveals the startling fact that merely walking on your Bucks County home's carpet can release potentially harmful particles into the air. These particles, when inhaled, lodge themselves in your lungs, potentially contributing to health problems like asthma. The most surprising finding of the research? That walking on carpet and sitting on furniture released as many fine particles as vacuuming.
This research hints at a much larger problem: poor indoor air quality in the homes of most consumers. Most homes harbor an alarming assortment of potentially toxic chemicals and substances. Carpet particles, as mentioned in this research, are usually made from synthetic fibers derived from petroleum. Their impact on the lungs is largely unknown.
Carpets are only the beginning, too: carpet glue and carpet padding can both give off toxic fumes (especially when new). Memory foam mattresses emit toxic fumes that have been associated with a variety of medical symptoms. Paints, varnishes, and fire retardants can also emit a steady flow of toxic, airborne chemicals. As a result, homes that are poorly ventilated become toxic enclosures for their owners, who unknowingly inhale a cocktail of toxic chemicals with every breath.
Want to know how healthy the air in your home really is? Using an AirAdvice monitor, we can test your air quality over a three-day period, recording one sample per minute. The results may reveal mildew, pollen, dust mites, asbestos, carbon monoxide, and pet dander. The first step towards a healthy house (and healthy inhabitants) is pinpoint-accurate air testing.

Carbon Monoxide Monitors
SBE Heating & Cooling knows that carbon monoxide concentrations as low as 9 parts per million can adversely effect your health (most carbon monoxide detectors have a sensitivity to concentrations above 70 ppm). Additionally, in many homes "negative pressure" exists that prevents CO from escaping normally. [Read More]
We've found one of the best way to control humidity is by pressurizing the interior with dehumidified air. The Santa Fe and Ultra-Aire dehumidifiers accomplish this ventilation strategy, maintaining relative humidities below the recommended maximum 50% level, and draw less energy than most residential 40-pint dehumidifiers.
