How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You

Take a deep breath and inhale. Feels good, right?

Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you may be alarmed if you had an idea of how many toxins you just inhaled, 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 water, it’s trendy to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade the air we breathe? Honestly, people, we can’t take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore.

It’s critical to take the time to assess quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can:

  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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air enhances how efficient your heating and cooling system works. How about “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
  3. A properly maintained heating and cooling system. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
