How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You

Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, I bet?

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

 

 

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

 

When it comes to food and drinks, it’s trendy to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade the air we breathe? Come on, people, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore.

 

You really need to increase the quality of the air you breathe indoors. The benefits are:

 

  1. Reduce the negative impact on 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. Decrease? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air enhances how efficient your HVAC system works. Want to enjoy a “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.
