The Air We Breathe: Industry Expert AC by Jay Offers Tips for Improved Air Filtration

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - Dec 9, 2011) - Since 1985 the skilled technicians at AC by Jay have attended to Phoenix heating and air conditioning units and made clean air a top priority. According to the American Lung Association (ALA), now nearly 70 million people across North America suffer from respiratory problems. The importance of clean home air and air filtration to ensure the health and safety of clients across the valley remains a top priority for Arizona-based AC by Jay.

Given the ALA data, it is no wonder that the most commonly prescribed drugs today are Claritin and Allegra. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) ranks air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health. What does this mean for the Arizona heating and air needs for families across the state? Education and prevention. This critical first step begins with skilled technician checking that your home and office air filtration systems are in working order.

Not having the right Phoenix air conditioning service assess proper air filtration can lead to serious health risks. Numerous daily activities such as cooling, cleaning and redecorating lead to the spread of indoor pollutants. In addition, approximately 40,000 dust mites, a common trigger for household allergies, can be found in a mere ounce of dust. Most homes generate about 40 pounds of dust per year for every 1,500 square feet of space.

From Monsoon storms to dust devils, there is certainly something in the air year round living in the desert. Many Phoenicians are among the more than 15 million Americans estimated to have asthma, including 1-in-3 school-age children. Eighty-seven percent of American homeowners are not aware that pollution may be worse inside their homes than outdoors. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately 30% of newly constructed and remodeled facilities have indoor air quality problems and the EPA ranks indoor air pollution among the top five environmental risks to public health.
