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 may be alarmed if you knew how many toxins you just pulled in, including chemical vapors, microbes, mildew, viruses, bacteria, dust, dirt, pollen, allergens and more. Wait…is that true? 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 people breathe an estimated 3,000 gallons of air every day. And that means your family does, too. So does your furry friend. When it comes to what we consume, it’s becoming popular to go organic or fit your faucet with the latest filter, but how do we upgrade 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. Doing so can: 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. Lower? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air improves how efficient your HVAC system works. Can you say “smaller carbon footprint” and “lower costs over time?” Protect your investment. Better air quality keeps heating and air conditioning components from corrosion, microbials, dirt and debris.
