Clean Air Facts

  • Most homes naturally generate about 40 pounds of dust per year for every
    1,500 square feet of space.
     
  • Just one ounce of dust can hold about 40,000 dust mites, one of the most
    common household allergens.
     
  • Up to 72 trillion allergens find their way into your home every day.
     
  • Irritating particles like dust, soot, mould spores and bacteria are
    often.3 microns in size – so small that 2,000,000 particles of that size
    could fit on the period at the end of this sentence.
     
  • Particles .3 microns in size are so small they aren’t filtered well by
    your nose and throat. This means they can get deep into your lungs. Our
    technology, found in Trane CleanEffects, removes up to 99.98% of tiny
    particles, effectively reducing triggers for asthma and allergies.
     
  • The World Health Organization estimates that approximately 30 percent of
    newly constructed and remodelled facilities have indoor air quality
    problems.
     
  • According to a study by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, indoor air
    contaminants are responsible for or aggravate half of all illnesses.
     
  • Many ordinary activities such as cooking, cleaning and redecorating can
    spread indoor pollutants.
     
  • Most homes built after 1979 have tighter insulation wraps that trap
    smoke, odours and other irritants indoors.
     
  • Because they breathe faster than adults, children inhale 50 percent more
    air per pound of body weight than adults and are especially sensitive to air
    quality problems.
