DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals to Be Featured on Hit TV Show "Designing Spaces"

Educates Homeowners on the Importance of Indoor Air Quality

ANN ARBOR, MI--(Marketwire - October 20, 2008) - The hit television show "Designing Spaces" has invited DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals to help educate viewers on how they can improve the indoor air quality of their homes. The show airs nationally on Women's Entertainment Network on Friday, October 24 at 8:30 a.m., and The Learning Channel on Saturday, October 25 at 8:00 a.m. Both times are Eastern Time.

As part of the ten-minute television segment, the Designing Spaces crew is taken on a tour of the DUCTZ International Training House model home at DUCTZ headquarters in Ann Arbor, Mich.

John Rotche, president of DUCTZ, alerts homeowners that a home's heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system should be inspected once every one to two years in order to ensure that contaminants inside the system, such as mold, dust and debris, are not degrading a home's air quality. This information is particularly relevant because October is the American Lung Association's Healthy Lung Month, and poor indoor air quality can aggravate lung-related illnesses such as allergies and asthma.

Following Rotche's insight on indoor air quality, Senior Vice President Tom Yacobellis describes the process that DUCTZ takes to rid a duct system of contaminants and demonstrates that process to the Designing Spaces crew.

"DUCTZ adheres to the strict HVAC maintenance standards as set forth by the National Air Duct Cleaners Association," said Yacobellis. "It is easy for ill-prepared duct cleaners to do more harm than good when cleaning a duct system. We at DUCTZ are excited for the Designing Spaces viewing audience to learn how the capability and knowledge of DUCTZ Indoor Air Professionals can improve their living environment."
