How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You

Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, doesn’t it?

Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you might be shocked if you knew 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 found outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And so do your kids. So does your Pug.

When it comes to food and water, it’s becoming popular to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but what about 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 heater/AC works. Can you say “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.
