When people say, "Let’s go outside and get some fresh air," they might as well say, "Let’s go outside and get some healthy air." The fact is, that in many cases, the air outside a home – even with smog – is cleaner than the air we breathe within the home.

But according to the highly trained staff at Aspen Clean Indoor Air Company, a service of Robertson Electric in Charlottesville, it doesn’t have to be that way.

The EPA recently suggested that our indoor air quality could be as much as 70 times more polluted than the air outside. Clean air in the home began to rapidly deteriorate back in the mid-70s when the insulation and "tight home" craze swept the nation. In an attempt to save a few dollars on heating bills, many homeowners simply locked in whatever pollutants were within the home’s walls. And the trend continues as modern homes are still being built to be airtight.

"Your home heating and cooling system will circulate pollutants throughout your entire home every time the system runs," stated Matt Vickers, Service Manager at Robertson Electric.

In fact, a heating and cooling system can bring in dust, pollen, mold, fungi, bacteria, carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, pesticides, legionella and a host of things that can be lethal, especially for those who are susceptible to respiratory ailments.

One phone call to Aspen Clean Indoor Air Company may end up being a real lifesaver.

"Nature has a way of cleaning itself," Vickers added. "Rain, snow, wind, dewfall, and purification through sunlight are some of the ways the outside air is cleaned. At Aspen, we use technology to simulate Mother Nature’s process by using proven products by Nature’s Home to cleanse the inside air of your home."

"Like Mother Nature, we cleanse your home by providing state-of-the-art products and services designed to inspect, purify, filter and maintain healthy indoor air," said Bruce Locker, President of Robertson Electric.

There are three principal means of ridding a home of dangerous pollutants. The first method involves tight ductwork and clean air ducts. Leaky or dirty ducts can produce dust, pollen, mold, fungi, smoke from tobacco, dust mites, mildew and pet dander which is breathed in by every member of the family. The health effects can range from coughing and wheezing to a feeling of breathlessness. Aspen thoroughly examines the ductwork for leaks and cleanliness wherever that problem exists.

An ultraviolet treatment from the Aspen Clean Indoor Air Company can rid the home’s air of bacteria, influenza, strep, other molds, chicken pox, tuberculosis and legionella. The health effects from these infectious agents can range from severe fatigue to viral infections to dizziness and bronchitis.

"Much as hospitals use ultraviolet light to purify their rooms, the Aspen professionals use UV rays to purify indoor air," Matt confirmed.

Toxic compounds such as formaldehyde, carbon monoxide, methylene chloride, pesticides and benzene can be treated effectively with oxidation methods from Aspen. Memory lapses, mild depression, lung dysfunction, headaches and lethargy are general symptoms caused by the above toxic compounds.

With one call to Aspen Clean Indoor Air, a team of specialists will come to your home for a free air quality evaluation. If they find a problem, they will recommend their services, which can include air purification, filtration systems, ultraviolet light, humidification, and ductwork cleaning or repair.

"We offer the most extensive and thorough evaluation on the market," Bruce Locker emphasized. When examining the ductwork, for example, the firm will actually use infrared cameras to view the inside of your duct system to determine what services and products are needed.
