The 44th annual celebration of Earth Day takes place on April 22nd. A major focus of this year’s event is green cities and things that can be done to make a more sustainable and healthy environment for the world’s population.
Today, more than half of the world’s population lives in urban environments. These concentrated areas of people utilize large quantities of energy and can suffer from air quality problems due to pollution. This pollution not only can impact people while they are outdoors, but this same air enters buildings through air intakes, doors and open windows.
Earth Day also aims to focus people’s attention on ways to improve energy efficiency in their homes and buildings and to create a healthy environment. Across Massachusetts and New England, Envirotech Clean Air has been helping people achieve these goals for over 15 years.
Envirotech offers HVAC mechanical inspection and duct cleaning services to identify problems that can cause a system to work inefficiently and impact the quality of the air people breathe. HVAC systems are designed to provide filtration, heating, cooling and to control humidity. If the system is not been properly installed and maintained, it will not operate properly and can waste energy and create indoor air quality (IAQ) problems. The HVAC system will also not provide clean air or operate efficiently if the duct work is dirty and filled with debris that can collect chemical and biological contaminants.
“Earth Day is a time for all of us to think about what we can do to improve the environment we live in and try to make it a more sustainable place for us and our children,” said Daniel Greenblatt, President of Envirotech Clean Air, Inc. “At Envirotech, our staff provides clients with the peace of mind that their HVAC system is operating properly so that energy is not being wasted and that building occupants are breathing clean air. We also provide mold remediation services for those who have mold issues that are causing indoor air quality concerns.”
