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 inside? 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 in the home, 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 people 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 water, it’s trendy to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but what about the air we breathe? Honestly, people, we can no longer take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore.

It’s important to take a look at the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can:

  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 enhances how efficient your heater/AC works. How about “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.
