How Indoor Air Quality Can Affect You Take a big breath and relax. Feels good, right? Not to be a killjoy, but are you in your home? If so, you might be shocked if you realized how many toxins you just inhaled, 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 in the home, 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 furry friend. 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 about the air we breathe? Seriously, people, we can no longer take indoor air quality for granted. Not anymore. You really need to increase 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. Reduce? your energy consumption. How? Cleaner air improves how efficient your heating and cooling system works. How about “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.
