The growth of mold in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems is a main contributor to poor indoor air quality. Mold spores are a prevalent part of bacteria and dust in the home. Ignoring a problem or potentially harmful situation involving poor indoor air quality can render an even more serious issue, so it should be taken care of immediately.
Mold allergies are a serious problem for many people. Those that are often exposed to poor indoor air quality are at a higher risk for developing some sort of respiratory complication. These people are often those that don’t even know that they could be vulnerable to such hazardous allergens.
The cause of inadequate atmosphere quality can stem from faulty HVAC equipment, poor air circulation, inappropriately operated or preserved HVAC systems, and not having a sufficient amount of external air. All of these things can cause the growth of the allergen, mold. Mold spores can lead to congestion, asthma, and other breathing difficulties for those that become exposed. During the time that HVAC systems operate they are able to transport considerable amounts of recirculated and outside air through the home or occupied space. The system becomes the channel through which toxic entities are spread.
It has been found that ultraviolet radiation is the most effective way to combat mold and other airborne bacteria in the home. UV rays can be used individually or can be combined with an EAC (Electronic Air Cleaner) to prevent or diminish the health risks that mold presents. UV light is able to restrict the reproduction process and growth of germs, allergens, and bacteria, such as mold.
To successfully kill microorganisms, found in an indoor atmosphere, ultraviolet energy waves are used. The UV radiation must make direct contact with the harmful bacteria to make sure that it is exterminated. The ultraviolet rays then infiltrate the organism, causing the molecular bonds to stop functioning properly and inducing mutilation of the cells. This remedy of doing away with mold spores in the HVAC system kills or sterilizes germs, rendering them unable to reproduce. The germs are either killed or sterilized, leaving them unable to reproduce. This is a guaranteed solution to reducing the allergens in the atmosphere in your home and improving your family’s overall quality of life.
Indoor air quality is an issue that is quickly becoming a priority problem in homes across the nation. Making sure that you and your loved ones are protected from harmful toxins is very important and should not be taken lightly. Having your HVAC system inspected and keeping up with its maintenance can mean the difference between breathing poor quality or high quality indoor air. Why not make the place that you spend a majority of your time a safer place to live and breath.

If even there was a more stupid result the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has said ‘greenhouse gases’, “threaten the public health and welfare of the American people” and that the pollutants, albeit mainly carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels, should be regulated under the Clean Air Act. Given free reign from the U.S. Supreme Court, the bureaucrats have made their authority official.
Just remember you exhale CO2 with every breath, which in turn is inhaled by plants as their food. Could a dumber idea be regulated? Probably not, but idiocy knows no boundaries in politics and the hysterical press.
Left to regulators, we may die of CO2 poisoning, but it won’t be from inhaling, it would more likely be from prohibited or restricted exhaling. If hysteria weren’t so saturated into the media and the ill educated and informed it would be high comedy.
But its not – its a man made disaster ignited, and we’re going to see it burn ravenously unless we stop it. That ‘we’ means people not ill informed and educated – en mass.
It’s worse than people realize. The media and press, the beauracracy, and the Congress are triangulating the economy. As one deplorable excuse for ‘public servant’ Sen. John Kerry put it, “”The message to Congress is crystal clear: get moving.”
Maybe it could even be quadangulating. Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, told The Associated Press on the eve of the U.N. climate conference in Copenhagen that by executive action, the Obama administration can boost the U.S. target for reducing greenhouse gas emissions beyond levels envisioned in legislation working its way through Congress.
Or is it pentangulation? U.N., the administration, the media, the bureaucrats, and the Congress, yes that’s five fuses for an economy bomb, none with any sense.
However it’s being seen now, history will show the leadership and self proclaimed “intelligentsia” of the human race as lemmings diving over the cliff.
If it wasn’t something to destruct an economy growing to provide decent standards of living of 6 plus billion human souls where most are still left out, it would be war, but the reasoned folks don’t seem to grasp how vicious the power and money grab is in this event.
They are out to destroy lifestyles, deconstruct the free economy for one of their design, and imprison you into their new economy. Just how do people, plants, and the animals on the earth plan to adapt? It’s a frightening unknown, but we do know that CO2, the food of plants, which are our food, is coming under direct attack.
So here is this writer’s comeback. Humanity doesn’t know the optimal CO2 concentration in the atmosphere. We don’t the too low or too high – at all. We’re not even asking the question or the right questions. But instinctively this writer’s response is – it’s probably not high enough yet.
We might want to take the position to keep going higher until those above noted questions have reliable answers.
Oh, lets not let anyone in the current climatology game play – their objectiveness is known to be biased, their honesty a fraud. Start in new with the right questions and the right people; we are after all talking about the feeding of virtually everything.
It’s an important thing to worry about. So where is the responsible science? I guess they’re out there wondering what to do about the climatologists, and they’re getting another great big helping of science scheming dumped on them now.
Being in science leadership might get to be less than desirable as an career – and that’s cause for grave worry as well.
Science has dragons to slay – lets try to help them out.

More government (EPA) takeover! The mainline news organizations, otherwise known as the Government Publishers, have totally ignored the Global Warming scandal. They are pretending it didn’t happen. On with the show- in Copenhagen!
While government stooges are worried about greenhouses gasses from cows no less, it is we the people that are about to be gassed by the government. Can you say EPA?
The Environmental Protection Agency took a major step Monday toward regulating greenhouses gases, concluding that climate changing pollution threatens the public health and the environment. The announcement came as the Obama administration looked to boost its arguments at an international climate conference that the United States is aggressively taking actions to combat global warming, even though Congress has yet to act on climate legislation. The conference opened Monday in Copenhagen.
The EPA is by-passing the Congress which can’t seemingly get its head out of a national health care system.
The EPA said that the scientific evidence surrounding climate change clearly shows that greenhouse gases “threaten the public health and welfare of the American people” and that the pollutants — mainly carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuels — should be regulated under the Clean Air Act.
“This is a clear message to Copenhagen of the Obama administration’s commitments to address global climate change,” said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., lead author of a climate bill before the Senate. “The message to Congress is crystal clear: get moving.”
Under a Supreme Court ruling, the so-called endangerment finding is needed before the EPA can regulate carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases released from automobiles, power plants, and factories under the federal Clean Air Act.
So, “endangerment finding” or not, we’re going to get the GAS in the form of higher taxes and governmental regulation(s).
As a spiritual-futurist, I have a BA degree majoring in history. One cannot know the future without knowing the past which holds clues to what is on the horizon. The world is in such a rapid expansion of knowledge that we are close to entering a tipping point that will forever change earth as we know it.

This CO2Refrigeration course provides a broad introduction to the fundamental knowledge required to work on CO2 systems and also helps prepare the student for further study of advanced CO2 Refrigeration Systems.
The course covers design, installation and maintenance considerations, including advantages in using CO2, and functionality of the different refrigeration systems, including volatile secondary, volatile secondary with DX, volatile secondary/cascade, trans-critical and direct expansion. This will be of great assistance to those already working with CO2 and those about to use these systems.
Interest in Carbon Dioxide technology has rapidly grown in the last few years as it provides exceptionally high refrigeration capacities for compressor size while CO2 itself is ozone friendly and has a low global warming potential (GWP) of 1. Regulations have further restricted the use of CFC and HFC refrigerants due to their damaging effect on the environment and the Industry believes that Carbon Dioxide technology will become even more important in the near future.
Star Refrigerationâs experienced engineers have developed this Carbon Dioxide course. The information about the use of CO2 in refrigeration systems was collected from many sources around the world and put together into a superior two-module course, including CO2 Fundamentals Â and CO2 Refrigeration System Basics. Danfoss has also contributed to the development of the course by providing valuable learning material.
Star Refrigeration has been working on the development of CO2 technologies and solutions that reduce users’ environmental impact and running costs for more than 15 years. It has, over the years, collected many awards for pioneering environmentally friendlier technologies.
Star has played a leading role in the development of carbon dioxide refrigeration in the UK and overseas. Andy Pearson, MD âContracts of Star Refrigeration is also co-founder and chairman of The carbon dioxide interest group (c-dig). This group was formed in Europe in July 2000 to provide a platform for the exchange of news, ideas, information and experiences between refrigeration engineers in industry and research/teaching organisations.
All this knowledge and shared experiences in the use of CO2 has been brought together to create this ground-breaking course, providing very clear and useful information about the use of CO2 as a refrigerant. Students achieving an 80% or more in the final test will receive a Diploma certified by CIBSE and the Construction CPD International Service.
Currently, elearning-training.com counts with a student community of more than 2000 members.
The Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers and The Construction CPD Service have accredited this Carbon Dioxide course, which is already being successfully used in the training of major UKâs supermarket service contractors as part of their training programme.
