Toxic air from an attached garage poses real health challenges to homeowners, especially in winter.
Buzzard’s Bay, MA (PRWEB) January 30, 2015
Tamarack Technologies (http://www.tamtech.com) C.E.O. Tom Colasanto, referring to this winter’s powerful storms, warned that homes with attached garages could have “the potential of spreading toxic fumes from the garage into the home unless there is proper ventilation to the outside.”
“Winter is an especially dangerous time of year as homeowners often warm up their cars before backing out of the garage as well as start up their gasoline-powered snowblowers inside before heading out. You end up with exhaust fumes infiltrating the house when the door leading to the garage is opened. Other unhealthy fumes get sucked in as well including volatile organic compounds (or VOCs) from cleaning products, fumes from stored pesticides or herbicides, gases from stored fuel, and noxious fumes from garbage containers,” he said.
Colasanto’s company, Tamarack Technologies, creators of the modern whole house fan, cited his Dragon fan as one example of an inexpensive solution to this under-appreciatedand dangerous problem.
The Dragon fan pulls toxic air out from an attached garage in all seasons; is easy to install for most homeowners, DIYers or a handyman; is energy efficient and completely maintenance free. Designed for easy through the wall installation, the Dragon features a powerful external rotor motor plus a built-in backdraft damper preventing insects from entering the garage during the other three seasons.
