Problems Resulting from Poor Indoor Air Quality
According to the Department of Environmental Protection, the average person spends up to 90% of his or her time indoors. Their experts state that indoor air quality can be anywhere from 2 to 5 times more polluted than outdoor air. Examples of indoor air pollutants include mold, spores, pollen, dust, dust mites, chemicals, bacteria, and other aggravating particles.
Indoor air pollutants are responsible for many health and comfort problems Long Island residents suffer within their home. These pollutants can cause upper respiratory problems, allergies, bronchitis, asthma, itchy skin and eyes, and more. If your indoor air is heavily contaminated, then the quality of life of you and your Long Island family suffers greatly.

HEPA Filter Basics for Long Island Homeowners
HEPA filters are High-efficiency particulate arrestance air filters. These filters are made using the most technologically advanced methods and can vastly improve the indoor air quality of your Long Island home. HEPA filters are so good at removing particulates from air that they are used in medical facilities, automobiles, and aircraft.
In order to be a HEPA filter, these systems must pass standards of efficiency set by the United States Department of Energy. In order to meet these high standards, HEPA filters must remove 99.97% of the particulate matter with a width of 0.3 micrometers that passes through them. For an example of the size of these particles, bacteria are generally 0.3 micrometers in size.
