The average American spends 16 hours a day indoors at home breathing indoor air. Fine particles enter your home through doors, windows, or small openings in frames, walls and roofs. These fine particles originate from various sources outside including fossil fuel burning in vehicles, power and manufacturing plants, and fires. The Environmental Protection Agency, American Lung Association and the American Heart Association all agree that exposure to airborne fine particles impairs breathing increasing the risk of asthma attack, stroke, heart attack and other serious illnesses. Installing a whole-house air cleaner can help remove those fine particles from the filtered air. Whole-house air cleaners such as Trane CleanEffectsTM can remove up to 99.98 percent of allergens and fine particles from the filtered air. For more information visit www.trane.com.
