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 home? If so, you might be shocked 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? 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 outside of your home. 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 what we consume, it’s all the rage to go organic or enhance 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. It’s important to take a look at the quality of the air you breathe indoors. Doing so can: 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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air increases how efficient your heater/AC works. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” Take care of your system. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
