Air pollution is on the rise. You can’t escape it. It’s everywhere and you probably don’t even know it. Studies have been done showing increase in incidence of lung disease for those who are closer to areas of higher concentration of pollution. This can be large factories or even just being within a certain distance of an interstate or major highway. Do your research when moving to a new area. Investigate distances from factories and busy roads. One way to combat this inside the home is to have air purifiers throughout the home. Heating and cooling specialists advise to use separate means of air filtration versus air intake filters for you home HVAC system. Many HVAC filters that are made for extra filtration are too dense and can stress the HVAC units.
