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 in your house? If so, you may be alarmed if you realized how many toxins you just pulled 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 we breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And that means your family does, too. So does your Pug.

When it comes to food and drinks, it’s becoming popular to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but what about the air we breathe? Seriously, people, indoor air quality isn’t a given. Not anymore.

It’s important to take a look at the quality of the air you breathe indoors. The benefits are:

  1. Keep you healthier. 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 improves how efficient your HVAC system works. Want to enjoy a “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
  3. Protect your investment. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
