How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a deep breath. Feels good, doesn’t it? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your house? If so, you might be shocked if you realized how many toxins you just pulled 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 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 food and drinks, it’s trendy to go organic or enhance your faucet with the latest filter, but how about the air we breathe? Honestly, 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. The benefits are: 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 enhances how efficient your heating and cooling system 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.
