How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You

Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, right?

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

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 so does your family. So does your Pug.

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

It’s critical to take the time to assess 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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air increases 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.
