People spend most of their time indoors. Indoor air can be 2-3 times more polluted than outdoor air. Homes and offices are now more tightly constructed, trapping dirt, dust and moisture which collects in carpets, on furnishings, and in your air duct system. The endless dusting and vacuuming doesn't help because air from a contaminated air duct system is continually being recirculated. Day after day, year after year, your air ducts are accumulating dust and contaminants. The average disposable filter traps less than 20% of the dust and pollen in the air.
