Ok let’s face it, most things in business will come down to budget. If you’re considering the cost of Aeroseal duct sealing, consider these 7 important indoor air quality facts that can make a big difference in the health of your employees, and
ultimately on your bottom line.
- We spend 60% to 90% of our time indoors
- 50% of all illnesses in the U.S. are caused by poor indoor air quality (IAQ).
- The EPA found that indoor air can be 5X more polluted than outside air – and it’s sometimes as much as 100X more polluted.
- 96% of homes tested had IAQ issues. 86% of these included high levels of dust, pollen and air-borne viruses. 71% of the air in homes tested was filled with potentially harmful chemicals and gases.
- Improvements in IAQ in the workplace/classroom can increase productivity by up to 10%.
- An EPA analysis found that if a school spent just $370 each year on preventative IAQ maintenance for 20 years (a total of $8,140) it would save about $1.5 million in repairs.
- 2 out of 3 indoor air quality problems involve the HVAC system. Many of these are directly related to leaky ventilation shafts and other ductwork.
Today, more than ever commercial operations are aware of the role that leaky ductwork plays in driving up energy cost. However, fewer managers and business owners are aware that duct leaks are also a main contributor to poor indoor air quality.
So when considering the overall cost of Aeroseal don’t forget that sealing leaks in ductwork is the single most effective thing you can do to lower your energy cost, but it’s also an important step in improving your employee work experience.
