Welcome to today’s 1:5:10:365 Tip for becoming a better steward for our home’s indoor environment and the planet.

1:5:10:235 EcoTip: Fried dust is a term used to describe the burned chemical odor that occurs when dirty furnace systems are operated. The dust that lands on the heat exchanger inside the furnace will vaporize when it gets hot. This released volatile organic compounds that can be quite a noxious odor. An efficient furnace filter and a sealed duct system can help prevent dust from settling on the heat exchanger to eliminate this problem.
