How Indoor Air Quality Affects You

How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You

Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, doesn’t it?

Not to be a killjoy, but are you inside? If so, you may be alarmed if you knew how many toxins you just drew in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…is that true?

How Indoor Air Quality Affects You

The EPA found in a survey that Americans spend 87% of their lives inside, and that indoor air pollutant levels are up to 100 times higher than levels outside of your home. Yikes! Now think about the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your pet.

When it comes to food and drinks, it’s all the rage to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade the air we breathe? Honestly, people, we can no longer take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore.

It’s critical to take the time to assess quality of the air you breathe indoors. You’ll notice the following improvements:

  1. Improve your health. That’s right. And actually, 50% of all illnesses are either caused or aggravated by polluted indoor air according to the American College of Allergists.
  2. Reduce? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air increases how efficient your heating and cooling system works. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
  3. Take care of your system. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
