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 had an idea of 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 indoors, 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 trendy to go organic or upgrade 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. You’ll notice the following improvements:

  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 increases how efficient your heating and cooling system works. How about “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
  3. Take care of your system. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
