VOC’s Affect Indoor Air Quality From St. Louis To St. Ann

“The air in your home may not be as clean as it seems,” observes the Rodale News. “We’re too concerned with the dirt that we see and not concerned enough about the filth we breathe in, namely all the particles and chemicals floating in our indoor air.” Invisible VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) inhabit the air and can hurt our health.

At Ricotta Heating and Air, serving St Louis and surrounding towns, indoor air quality is one of our most important concerns. We know the Environmental Protection Agency frequently states that, generally, indoor air is more polluted than the air outdoors!

And just why is that observation so important to us and to our customers? We know that many people spend as much as 90% of their time indoors, with continual exposure to indoor pollutants. (Thinking, “Not in my house!”? Think again.) A simple test reveals dangerous pollutants in the air inside most homes and offices:

  • Allergens:
    Pet dander
    Pollen
    Mold
    Dust mites
  • Biological particles:
    Viruses
    Fungi
    Bacteria
  • Toxic substances:
    Cigarette smoke
    Wood smoke
    Lead dust
    Asbestos particles

With warm weather, you may soon be turning on your air conditioning. But, at Ricotta Heating & Air, we know there’s more to spring and summer air quality than air conditioning. With some simple upfront testing, our experienced technicians are able to assess the air quality in your home, including cleanliness and humidity, and will recommend the best solution for your family’s health and well-being.

At Ricotta, we’re all about clean living and clean air!
