Indoor Air Quality: How it can affect you
How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You
Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, I bet?
Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you might be shocked if you knew how many toxins you just pulled in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…are you serious?
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 you may find outside. Yikes! Now think about the fact that you breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And that means your family does, too. So does your pet.
When it comes to what we consume, it’s all the rage to go organic or upgrade 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.
You really need to increase the quality of the air you breathe indoors. You’ll notice the following improvements:
- Improve 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.
- Reduce? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air enhances how efficient your heater/AC works. Want to enjoy a “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?”
- A properly maintained heating and cooling system. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
